The 26-year-old joined the club from Sporting Lisbon back in 2020. He has since displayed a no-nonsense attitude and has demanded nothing but success from himself and those around him.
While Fernandes wears his heart on his sleeve, Solskjaer often has his charming smile on regardless of the situation. If the United boss is to be believed, one will not want to cross him at the wrong time.
“If you are at Man United and enjoy losing, you are at the wrong place.”
As someone who has won it all at United, Solskjaer is well aware of he demands that come with donning the famous red jersey. While he may present a calmer outward appearance in comparison to Fernandes, the truth is anything but.
“I don’t show my frustration maybe so much as Bruno but I think maybe I am the worst loser at the club. You have probably not seen it but some of the players have.”
The players are well aware of the Norwegian’s other face and we figure it is not something they enjoy seeing. Whoever named the boss the baby-faced assassin got it spot on.
He may not be finding the back of the net himself any more, but his competitiveness has not dimmed and he expects his players to rise to the same standards.
United are yet to win any silverware under Solskajer so far. With still much to be played for this season, the Norwegian will seek to set that record straight.
While he may still divide supporters, Solskjaer has, to his credit, brought stability back to the club. Whether he is truly the man to take us forward remains to be seen.
