Manchester United fans call for signings after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer appointment

by Marwan Harraz

Manchester United fans have reacted to the news of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer‘s permanent appointment positively but have also called on the board to ensure his success continues.

Many believe a director of football must be appointed and the Norwegian must be backed in the transfer market.

There has been growing concerns from supporters that the board only appointed Solskjaer as they believe he will save them money long-term given how he’s improved United already.

Reports had emerged that the club chiefs felt that the former Molde boss has saved them £50m as they no longer feel the need to invest in a centre-back.

Fans feel that signings need to be made regardless of whoever is in charge but now that Ole is the manager, they’re adamant he must be supported this summer.

David Moyes, Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho were all sufficiently supported by the board in terms of finances but it’s clear to see many of their signings were poor deals.

Occasionally poor because the player failed to make an impact or occasionally poor because the club overspent.

This is why fans feel getting the director of football decision right is almost as important as getting the managerial call right as well.
