“Haven’t really improved” – Former PL star urges Solskjaer to take a leaf out of rival managers

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer urged to copy Mikel Arteta and Frank Lampard

According to The Express, former Chelsea striker Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink believes Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is not in the same league as Frank Lampard and Mikel Arteta.

In fact, the Norwegian has been asked to learn from his managerial rivals. Despite the win against Everton last time around, Solskjaer continues to be under pressure regarding his job at United.

“We’re nearly two years on since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over and they haven’t really improved.”

The Red Devils are currently 14th in the Premier League table and have lacked consistency and conviction at times.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has struggled to show progress at Manchester United

Having lost three of our first four games at Old Trafford in the league, United will look to get all three points when they face West Bromwich Albion this weekend.

Arteta meanwhile has lost four games and is also seeing Arsenal through a tough transitional period. Despite that, the Spaniard does not receive the same criticism as Solskjaer.

“It’s a fair assessment. If you compare them with Man United, there is a structure in place at Arsenal.”

Hasselbaink however believes that it is the fair call. Having brought in Gabriel Magalhaes and Thomas Partey, Arteta has at the very least attempted to address glaring shortcomings in his squad.

Similarly, Lampard at Chelsea has also gone about improving the club’s fortunes in recent weeks. The Blues could go top of the league if they beat Newcastle United in the early kick-off tomorrow.

Hasselbaink believes our impressive performance at Goodison park could just be a red herring. He is at a loss to understand what the role of players at United are and believes good performances cover up the deficiencies.

“I don’t know what the players’ roles are.”

It is debatable if Arteta is the right man to bring Arsenal success. We are however impressed wih the work Lampard is doing at Chelsea.

Solskjaer did to his credit steady the ship after taking over from Jose Mourinho. However, he has a long way to go before he can be considered a messiah.

Hopefully, he can turn around our fortunes. It would not be amiss to say that he is not getting the best out of the players at his disposal.
