Manchester United’s Solskjaer Considered as the Premier League Worst Coach, As Emery Sacked
Since the dismiss of Emery from Emirates Stadium on Friday, following his 2-1 defeat to the German side Frankfurt in the Europa League match, there is arguably no weaker manager in England’s top flight than the under-pressure Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The Red Devils sits in the 11th position in the Premier League table, sitting behind Tottenham and Arsenal, two sides to have decided upon a change of club manager in the past 10days.
Ole Gunnaar Solskjaer is not necessarily the worst coach in the EPL, but unfortunately, there is not enough evidence to claim hi is close to any of the best managers. He certainly has nothing like the experience of either ex-Arsenal Coach Unai Emery and also ex-Tottenham coach, Mauricio Pochettino.
It is understood that the current Tottenham’s squad is definitely better than that of United. Arsenal’s group is probably as good as United’s own, but Emery’s players seemed beside themselves with apathy.
Almost every manager is faced with this question of “When will the sack arrive, not if.” The timing and prominence of the question are the only two factors ever under debate.
Manchester United’s board face a difficult question: How many of the club’s current problem are down to Solskjaer’s tenure, and how many can be solved by him?
Talking about the table, with Liverpool, Leicester City, Chelsea and Manchester City at the top four, there consist of at least three managers who have consistently proven themselves as tactically superior to Ole.
United are build up to counterattack, basically because they generally fight to break down sides who sit back and absorb pressure. Meanwhile that has changed recently and briefly.
Chelsea boss, Frank Lampard has managed to build a better option of introducing younger players to the first team than Solskjaer. That is partially down to the Blues transfer ban, but Lampard always intend to depend heavily on youth. This is regarded as excellent job of managing so many novices.
Solskjaer, however, have not performed so well. Though injuries deny him opportunity. He has had to use Phil Jones on some occasion and his most talented midfielder, Paul Pogba has been out for some months now, due to injury.
Ever since the Duo, Frank Lampard and Ole Gunnar arrived their various clubs, the result that Lampard has overseen are much more impressive Than that of Ole since this season.
There has been improvement in the United’s transfer, in mentality, and plans to make the side more physically durable. All these shows progress, but the way they have been achieved illustrates the hardship of assessing Solskjaer.
Both Tottenham and Arsenal ultimately to dismiss, since they found out they could no longer get their players to put in the required effort. But for United, they can always pin their hopes on the fact that the squad are still worthy and willing to play for their manager for the shirt, at least with more vigour than they have since the exit of Sir Alex Ferguson.
There is only two way forward, if they stick with Ole, the sophistication of the side must develop if they are to face any of the top four. But if it doesn’t, and the players throw in the towel, then there is even further to drop down in the league table.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer remains the manager who has everything to prove.
