Luke Shaw praises ‘really positive’ Manchester United caretaker boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Luke Shaw has been singing the praises of Manchester United caretaker manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, saying that he has brought a positivity and attacking impetus to the side.

Solskjaer of course replaced Jose Mourinho, who was sacked 11 days ago after steering Manchester United on their worst start to the season in the Premier League era.

The Portuguese was widely criticised for playing a drab, defensive style of football during his two-and-a-half year stint at Old Trafford, a style totally at odds with the club’s heritage.

Since the arrival of club legend Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, United have scored eight goals in two games, with six different players finding the net, as the Norwegian has seemingly released the handbrake.

As United prepare for this afternoon’s Premier League game against Bournemouth, Luke Shaw has hailed the positive influence that the caretaker boss has had:

“I think you can see from the outside how much he has changed things in such a short space of time,” Shaw told Sky Sports.

“He is just a really positive manager, he knows what the club needs and also what the fans want in the way we are playing.

“He’s bringing that attacking, quick-play back to Old Trafford. I’m sure the fans are going to appreciate that as much as we [the players] do.”
