” Man United Made Big Mistake for Appointing Solskjaer ” Sir Alex Ferguson
Legendary Manchester United Coach, Sir Alex Ferguson, believes that United executives could have appointed Tottenham manager, Mauricio Pochettino, ahead of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, according to report by Daily Mail.
Following the sacking of Jose Mourinho in December last year, United’s executive vice-chairman Edward Woodward decided to give Ole Gunnar Solskjaer a contract until the end of the campaign.
However, the ex-manchester united legend Solskjaer hit the ground very well with his first eight games, while he also guided United to a remarkable comeback victory against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League. And ever since that 3-1 victory in Paris on March 6, United won just two matches and lost eight of their remaining 12 games in all competitions.
Solskjaer was given a three-year contract at the end of March and is now tasked with a major rebuild of his United squad, who will play in the Europa League next season.
Ferguson feels that United should have made an attempt to lure Pochettino away from Tottenham before Solskjaer was given a permanent contract.
The Scot is understood to be a huge admirer of the 47-year-old, who has guided Spurs to the Champions League final this season. Ferguson privately met with Pochettino for lunch in 2016 and is understood to be a huge admirer of the 47-year-old, who has guided Spurs to the Champions League final this season.
