Ole Gunnar Solskjaer made a brilliant start to his managerial career at Manchester United, winning games like they were going out of fashion.
However, the wins have dried up in the last few weeks with the Red Devils managing just 2 in the last 6 games and even those 2 wins came on the back of unimpressive performances.
So, what’s wrong?
According to close sources, OGS is concerned over the fitness of his players. The manager initially introduced a high press, high-intensity game plan which brought much-needed success after the departure of Jose Mourinho.
However, there has been a growing injury concern in the last few weeks with the likes of Ander Herrera, Nemanja Matic, Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial, Phil Jones, Alexis Sanchez, Juan Mata suffering injuries at some point of time since the Norwegian’s arrival.
OGS is concerned that the fitness of the players is not up to the mark which has resulted in so many injuries and the recent dip in the performances.
With just a month of Football left, it would be impossible to improve the fitness of the players and OGS would need a full pre-season (and a host of new players) to build up the fitness of the squad that should be good enough to last the season.
Until then, we will have to make do with the squad and the lack of fitness should be substituted with grit, determination and the sheer willpower to perform for the shirt!
