Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Manchester United have had a rocky start to the new Premier League season, winning just one of our first four fixtures.
Manchester United legend Gary Neville has compared Solskjaer’s task to that of Jurgen Klopp when he first arrived at Liverpool.
According to Neville, Solskjaer is working more with a squad like the one Klopp picked up at Liverpool than the one Pep Guardiola inherited at Manchester City.
“It does take time,” said Neville on his Sky Sports podcast.
“Solskjaer is working more with a squad like the one Klopp picked up at Liverpool than the one Guardiola inherited at City.
“From that point of view this is going to be a long game at Old Trafford and it’s going to be frustrating at times.
“There are going to be results like Southampton, Wolves and Crystal Palace along the way, but when you watch the team a lot of the principles are correct.
“They seem to be playing the right way.
“You see Daniel James score that goal [at St Mary’s] and you see the way in which they are trying to play.
“The style of it is right.
“The bones are there but there’s still a very long way to go.
“It’s going to be bumpy along the way.”
