The Former Manchester United striker Andy Cole has given his support to manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who he believes is restoring the club’s identity.

The former England International is convinced that the club is on the right track with the Norwegian working on restoring the club’s identity.

He told Manchester Evening News: “When you have an identity, whoever comes into that club should not be trying to change it.

“If you work for Apple, Steve Jobs is no longer with us, but whoever replaces him hasn’t tried to change the identity of the company.

“It’s like Barcelona, everybody knows how they play, so a manager can’t come in and change that, it’s about continuity, now Ole is trying to bring that back, which is the most important thing.

“Management is not an easy role, he’s come in and he’s tried to do the right thing, which is important. He’s tried to take United back to what we were. Ultimately he’s trying to bring United back to how they play, by playing good football.”

Solskjaer’s spell as United boss has so far has been marred by inconsistencies, but there have been improvements recently under the Norwegian’s guidance.
