Dwight Yorke has praised Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for his work at Manchester United since taking over from Jose Mourinho in 2018. The Red Devils are fighting for a top four finish in the Premier League, while the team is also fighting for the Europa League. Yorke says he is excited for what the future holds for United, having been surprised on how well he has adjusted as manager of United.
“Ole was a very soft-spoken individual in the dressing room, very professional and took his job very seriously. He comes in, trains, does his work. He knows that, in his time, wasn’t a regular but a team player. He was ready whenever he was called upon.”
“I have to say I did not really see Ole as a manager – I saw him more as a coach – but what he is doing is remarkable, and shows that you don’t have to be the best player to be the best coach.”
“What a chance he has got to come back to the biggest club in the world. The good thing of Ole is that he went straight into coaching after his playing days.”
“What a transformation now, six months ago, we wouldn’t be sitting excitedly. I am excited now, we have seen the change. Ole deserves credit, he seems to get the best out of his players and that’s half the battle.”
