Marcus Rashford believes Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has better relations with Manchester United players than Jose Mourinho. The Norwegian strategist even has a clear long-term plan than his predecessor.
Solskjaer took over as caretaker coach after Mourinho was fired in December 2018, after the Red Devils had poor results. Solskjaer’s status was finally permanent in March.
Since Solskjaer is permanent as United’s permanent coach, the appearance of the Red Devils has decreased. Until the competition was over, Solskjaer failed to lift the team’s performance.
Although the results have not improved this season, Rashford stressed that the squad still supports Solskjaer’s vision. “At this time, everyone believes in the manager. We may not have done what he told us perfectly, but as an initial response to his tactics, the training was phenomenal. For me, the difference with the previous manager lies in the plan. This is not a plan for the season. This is a plan for years,” explained Rashford quoted from BBC Sport on Friday (9/13/2019).
“I think the coach needs to be supported. In our current position, we don’t need this rotation of the coach, because you are never satisfied. But what needs to be known off the pitch is that he understands the players better. I don’t think that’s a problem for Mourinho, because he is clearly a manager top, and he has a way to read people. ”
“But for me, when a manager plays, they live the lifestyle we live in and they maybe a little more understanding,” added the British striker.
