The Simple Dressing Room Change Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Has Made At Man Utd
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer arrived at Manchester United with a clear mindset. He wanted his team to play without fear.
He wanted this players to go out and express themselves while taking plenty of risks. Basically in his own words, Ole Gunnar Solksjaer asked his players “to be the kids that love to play football.”
And it’s so far so good for the Norwegian.
He’s managed to get the best out of a number of players, including a certain Paul Pogba. who was previously criticised for his attitude and application under Jose Mourinho.
The midfielder looks to have been revitalised under his management.
The 25-year-old didn’t just score two goals against Huddersfield earlier this week, but he led his team from front to back. He controlled play and looked sharp – not to mention his inspirational team talk before kick-off.
Solskjaer is obviously a big fan of the French midfielder, but what has he done to get the best of Pogba and his team?
It’s clear that the players are playing with more freedom and that’s partly down to the players being happy.
Solskjaer has made sure that he addresses his players in a certain way in the dressing room.
According to report in The Telegraph, the United manager has made a point to talk to as many individual players as possible to “inject some positivity.”
Not only that, but Solskjaer has made sure to focus on those who were publicly ousted by Mourinho during his time at the club and Pogba has benefitted massively from his management style, according to the report.

It looks like Solskjaer has come in and really focused on the man-management side of things, something that Sir Alex Ferguson was famed for during his 26 year spell at Old Trafford.
Perhaps that was a little piece of advice from Sir Alex?
All we know is, United look like a different team under the former United striker. Can they reach top four this season?
