Manchester United are no more the butt of jokes from anyone. Every team above them on the English Premier League (EPL) table is casting backward glances as Ole Gunner Solksjaers united on the march.


Fans of Jose Mourinho had argued that the set of players at United were not good enough even though they came second behind Manchester City last season.

The same set of players have now won eight consecutive matches, six in the EPL that has taken them to sixth on the table, level on point with Arsenal a position that was inconceivable at the end of November last year.

The question asked by many soccer fans is 'What exactly has solksjaer, a manager of just seven seasons old, done that an Eighteen year veteran did not accomplish. Even though it is still early days.

Did mourinho not got his mixture right or did he stop trying to get the right mixture?

Could it be that the players just got tired of mourinho rigid structure and the penchant of blaming them when things were going bad and taking glory when things went well.

Unfortunately, the special one 'metamorphosed into the 'Moaning one' and had to be sacked last December, paving the way for Solksjaers emergence.

Before mourinhos sacking on December 16, the team chemistry had broken down. The controversial potugise who does not hide his view,  shout it at every media when given the opportunity.

From Anthony Martial to Paul Pogba. Some of the United players were almost caught with pained expression on and off the pitch.

The special one made his first major media appearance since being sacked by united when he featured as part of BelN sports coverage as an analyst.

He spoke about the powers players now have above coaches which according to him is bad for the round leather game.

He suggested that the structure of protecting managers should be put in place regretting that players now have powers more than before.

Many are yet to be convinced that Solksjaer is good enough as they awaits next month Champions League battle. This will really put to test the former united player cridibility which will also decide if he will be giving a permanent deal.
