Gary Neville reckons there would be a ‘mutiny’ among the Old Trafford Faithful if Ole Gunnar Solskjaer doesn’t get the managers job at Manchester United.
The Manchester United fans have welcomed the Norwegian back to Old Trafford with open arms after he was appointed as caretaker boss back in December, and they have only seen their side lose once during his 14 games in charge.
Solskjaer, who turns 46 today, has restored the clubs traditions of playing exciting football, and while they have sat back against the likes of Spurs, Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool, the counter-attack based football has restored a feel-good factor among the supporters.
United’s 0-0 draw with Liverpool at the weekend was played out in front of a raucous Old Trafford crowd, who belted out countless renditions of their new favourite song, ‘Ole’s at the Wheel’, and speaking after the game Gary Neville said that there would be uproar among the fans if the clubs hierarchy didn’t make Solskjaer the manager on a permanent basis.
“Three months ago (under Jose Mourinho) if it was 0-0 at home they would have been singing ‘attack, attack, attack’,” Neville told Sky Sports.
“They were singing “Ole Gunnar Solskjaer” all of the second-half. The mood has completely transformed.
“He has the crowd with him. I think at this moment in time if you’re the board you are not in a position where you could give it to someone else, I think there would be a mutiny.
“The fans love him. They were getting behind the team in the second-half but mostly they were singing for him.”
