English football expert and coach Gary Neville thanked outgoing Man Utd manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for restoring some kind of soul to the club.


What did Neville say about Ole Gunnar Solskjaer?

Ole saw his three-year reign at Old Trafford come to an end after his 4-1 side got drunk at the hands of Watford on Saturday. Man Utd has slipped into seventh place in the Premier League standings after that result, with the Norwegian paying the price for an extremely disappointing start to the season, but Gary believes he deserves credit for the work he has done at Old Trafford.

Man Utd legend Gary Neville said of his former teammate, “Thanks Ole. You made us proud.” According to Neville, the last two months have been tough, but before that, you restored some kind of soul in the club. The former captain of Man Utd added that Solskjaer will reflect on this with sadness at the end, but he should be proud of the work he has done in the first two to three years.

The club was in a dark place at the end of the Mourinho era, with some players turning into mercenaries. There are some good guys in the locker room right now, they just don’t play right now. He admitted, however, that Ole could not complain about being fired after he was given enough time to put on his own sign.

Gary Neville said that Solskjaer cannot complain in the sense that he was given three years and supported in the transfer market. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be massively disappointed that he was not able to stage performances this season. Ole expected much more, they all expected much more. Only he and the players will understand what went wrong in the last couple of months.


Solskjaer’s achievements at Man Utd

Man Utd climbed steadily up the table under Ole’s leadership, with a 6th finish in 2018-19, followed by a third berth in 2019-20 and a runner-up in 2020-21. In the end, he was unable to deliver a single silverware, although, with his final record, 91 wins, 37 draws and 40 losses from 168 games at the helm.
