Manchester United boss Solskjaer has proven his managerial ability, says Berbatov

Dimitar Berbatov says Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has proven his managerial credentials at the highest level.

Since the January arrival of Bruno Fernandes, Manchester United have looked like a totally different side and managed to play themselves into the Champions League next season.

Solskjaer has also got the back-line sorted, and built an exciting attack that could cause some serious problems for most teams in the Premier League next season, with the trio of Mason Greenwood, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial netting over 50 goals between them this season.

Questions were asked over Solskjaer’s credentials during his first few months in the Old Trafford hot seat, but his belief in the club’s younger players and smart recruitment in the transfer market has reaped rewards in 2020.

And Berbatov has credited the Norwegian for overseeing a return to Europe’s premier competition, The former United striker also hailed Solskjaer for lifting the mood in the dressing room, telling Betfair: “I’m happy for everyone at the United after they hit their target of qualifying for the Champions League. They deserve it. They had to beat Leicester and they did it. I’m happy for Ole and the team, this will be huge for the club and for everybody.

“There will always be doubters, but overall people will realise managers need time to build. There are obstacles, of course, but in the future things can improve, and Ole has shown that.

“It will be more difficult now with the Champions League, and you will still get criticism next year when you lose, but for now, we should be happy with the work he has done. I think the players love him, and that’s shown by how they’ve played.

“He’s made United consistent, which they haven’t been for so long, and he brought it when it counted the most. They were smart, consistent, and they got results.

“You can buy players now because everyone wants to play in the Champions League, and Ole has shown what a good manager he is.”
