Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in good company after win over Everton

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has matched a record he can be proud of as only Sir Matt Busby and Sir Alex Ferguson have accomplished the feat before.

The legendary Norwegian gets his fair share of criticism but has managed to brush past all the negativity to inspire his side to a great run of form of late.

United started the season slowly and poorly and it seemed to suggest that Solskjaer’s time at the club may have been up.

The embarrassing 6-1 loss to Tottenham Hotspur at home and getting knocked out of the Champions League are arguably the lowest lows of the season.

Nonetheless, the Red Devils have looked like a team on a mission lately and Solskjaer deserves credit, just as he did criticism.

Although some fans have gotten carried away and feel a title challenge isn’t impossible, others feel this season would be a success if a top-four spot is achieved as well as a trophy to take home.

The Carabao Cup and FA Cup are certainly realistic competitions to win and there’s no reason why the Europa League can’t be targetted either.

Solskjaer will have to balance his team successfully to win as many cup competitions as possible without compromising his league position but it isn’t an impossible feat.

Edinson Cavani has made quite an impact since his deadline day arrival at Old Trafford, but how much do you know about our other South American players, past and present? Take our quiz below to find out!
