Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Evra: Solskjaer a ‘good appointment’ for Manchester United

Patrice Evra has urged Manchester United fans to believe in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and says the Norwegian is a ‘good appointment’ as the club’s manager.

The former defender returned to the Manchester United this week to work alongside the club’s youth teams as part of his coaching badges and has been discussing the club’s prospects under Solskjaer.

United have endured a difficult start to the 2019/20 campaign, winning just two of their opening five games, with some fans questioning whether the Norwegian has the credentials to restore the club back to toward the top of the table.

However, Evra has urged the club’s fans to back their manager, saying that the 46-year-old’s understanding of the ‘philosophy’ of the club makes him the ideal candidate to bring success and silverware back to Old Trafford, especially following on from the abundance of managers since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement in 2013.

“We’ve had too many managers, David Moyes, [Louis] van Gaal, [Jose] Mourinho. I just think for the players it’s difficult,” Evra told Sky Sports.

“One manager wants to play one way, another manager wants to play another way, you need to know the value of the club and Manchester United.

“That’s why I think Ole is a good appointment for the club. He knows the philosophy of the club.

“It’s difficult when you come to Manchester United from the outside, people don’t accept you straight away. You need to bleed for this club before people accept you.

“We are a big club. We want to win trophies. We don’t want to spend more than 10 years without winning the league again. It’s not easy but the fans have to believe – it’s a process.”
