Sir Alex Ferguson has advised the current Manchester United manager, Solskjaer, to always start his best players after the manager failed to start Ronaldo and Pogba against Everton. Manchester United fell to fourth place in the Premier League after failing to beat Everton.These are the two reasons why Solskjaer should listen to Sir Alex Ferguson’s advice.
1. Alex Ferguson is a more experienced manager than Solskjaer: the former Manchester United legend could not see that a rotating player could not help him to win the league. He is doing that because he has a lot of players. Ole needs to find his best team that is capable of beating any team in the league. He was also criticised by other Manchester United legends like Rio Ferdinand and Gary Neville, who think they need to find a pattern of play. Even Ronaldo left the pitch. In anger
2. Individual brilliance, not tactics, wins games for Manchester United. United has struggled against smaller teams and has won most of them the hard way. Solskjaer has always made use of two defensive midfielders. Which looks like the weakest link in the team. Just imagine if Ronaldo and Cavani didn’t score. They would eventually draw or lose the game. When you look at West Ham in the Carabao Cup, they could not win the game because of the non-availability of the team’s best players.
Solskjaer has gotten enough backing from the club owners, who are not looking forward to replacing him with another coach, but he needs to start earning the trust of the fans, who are already tired of the manager giving excuses all the time. Manchester United’s October fixtures are a determinant of whether they are title contenders. The manager needs to trust a new set of players in the midfield. He should try using Matic and Van De Beek to see if the team progresses.
