Solskjaer Has More Points From His First 10 Games Than Any Manager In Premier League History

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer arrived as the caretaker manager of Manchester United with a very clear mindset.

The Norwegian wanted his team to play without fear, taking plenty of risks in the process.

Basically in his own words, Ole Gunnar Solksjaer asked his players "to be the kids that love to play football."

And it's so far so good for the former United striker.

Ole has now picked up more points from his first 10 games than any other manager in Premier League history after a 0-0 draw against Liverpool at Old Trafford.

He's managed to get the best out of a number of players, including a certain Paul Pogba. who was previously criticised for his attitude and application under Jose Mourinho.

Not to mention the form of Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard, who encapsulate the club's philosophy of nurturing homegrown talent.

These talented individuals are now playing with more freedom and that's partly down to overall happiness.

It has been revealed that Solskjaer has made sure that he addresses his players in a certain way in the dressing room.

According to report in The Telegraph, the United manager has made a point to talk to as many individual players as possible to "inject some positivity."

Not only that but Solskjaer made sure to focus on those who were publicly ousted by Mourinho during his time at the club.

And Pogba has benefitted massively from his management style, according to the report.

It looks like Solskjaer has come in and really focused on the man-management side of things, something that Sir Alex Ferguson was famed for during his 26 year spell at Old Trafford.

Does he deserve the full-time job?
