One of the main issues of the current season in English football is “Will Ole Gunnar Solskjaer be able to return Manchester United to the Champions League zone?”. The coach came to the team in the middle of the season and managed to quickly transform its game, which instantly affected the results of the club.
The last months under the leadership of Jose Mourinho have been a real trial for the fans of Manchester United. The Portuguese coach has almost completely lost control over the team, so he was no longer able to give the team something new. As a result, the gap to the Champions League zone became threatening, and the club’s bosses decided to invite Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to the position of interim coach.
Football scores today have quickly improved under the leadership of once the legend of the Red Devils. Most importantly, the team began to show interesting football, which is really nice to watch. The attacking style together with competitors’ failures have brought the United noticeably closer to the Champions League zone; only a month ago it could only have been dreamed of.
At the website of sports statistics, you can find the results of not only the English Premier League, but also England championship, which is now in the middle of a tense struggle for an upgrade.
What to Expect from the Mancunians in Second Half of Season?
Of course, the team’s game on boxing day pleased the fans, but whether that spirit and courage are enough for the long tournament distance is a big question. However, Solskjaer has the most important thing; he has the faith of the fans and the management. That is why he can do almost everything, but for this he needs to make maximum efforts. The potential trumps that will help the team to qualify for the next season in the Champions League include:
- Long bench. Despite all the problems, the United have one of the best lineups in the league, and many players of it can decide the fate of the match almost singlehandedly.
- Instability of the main competitors. This season, many teams have both winning streaks and epic fails, which is why Manchester United found its sunshine after the rain and managed to get closer to other contenders for a place in the Champions League zone.
- Tactical diversity, which is actively used by the coach.
- Emotional rise of the team. Pogba, Rashford, Lukaku and many others began to play much more confidently under the leadership of Solskjaer. Now, nothing binds them, which has a positive effect on the results of the club.
Let’s see how the fate of the once legendary player of Old Trafford will be this time, and whether he can return the club to the Champions League.
