Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has rightfully gained praise for much of what he has done so far but a recent statistic has emerged proving there’s something even more important that has gone under the radar.
The Norwegian has completely revitalised the squad handed to him by predecessor Jose Mourinho, as they continue to close in on a previously unthought of top four spot.
The Portuguese manager was sacked in December after losing to Liverpool and before that he had claimed a position in the Champions League qualifications spots were impossible.
Solskjaer’s work has been so great that United now dare to dream once more with there even being the possible of stealing third place as well.
Besides the obvious things he’s changed or affected at the club, the former Molde man has made sure his squad don’t lack character.
Every setback under Solskjaer so far has been followed by a win.
Drew 2-2 with Burnley, beat Leicester 1-0.
Lost 2-0 to PSG, beat Chelsea 2-0.
Drew 0-0 with Liverpool, beat Palace 3-1.#MUFC

The need to bounce back and bounce back fast cannot be overstated enough particularly with the Red Devils having little room to fail.
The aforementioned results are the only results Ole hasn’t won since being installed as caretaker manager back in December.
It’s an incredible feat and testament to the job he’s done along with the players and staff.
