Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, former Manchester United striker and the current interim manager for the same club, is definitely the right man for the managerial post and a “baby-faced assassin” as he was known in the British media circles for his lethal finishes. And now known for bringing this breath of fresh air injected into the hearts of the players, the staff and the fans who have been waiting so long to see the old United flair missing since the Ferguson era.

Ole’s record has already been terrific for any United manager to begin with. 11 wins off 13 games with the only loss coming to PSG in the UEFA Champions League is a mighty achievement for the same set of players Mourinho too handled.
In fact, the results under Solskjaer have been much better this season with the team now back into the reckoning in the top 4 and consistently outperforming their opponents by proper tactical planning and swift counter attacking football that they’ve recently rediscovered through a string of good performances.
A potential candidate to replace Solskjaer has long been rumored to be Mauricio Pochettino, Tottenham’s manager and the man behind the transformation of Spurs in such a short time. While bringing him in as the gaffer would again be a great decision but now United has found Solskjaer and in him a person who has been passionate for the club as a manager and as a player and who also knows how United play the game.
With 25 points won after his first nine game's in the EPL, Solskjaer will set a new total points record with a victory or draw against Liverpool, this Sunday. Only Guus Hiddink has managed (25 points) after his first ten EPL league game's. #mufc #MUNLIV ?⚫ pic.twitter.com/S6iJJQ5vWY

By all means, since the arrival of Solskjaer, things have definitely improved off the field with a sense of ambition to succeed in the players, the same set of people who could not say what will happen to the season in a month or 2 later. Nobody could have thought such a turnaround is possible and that is why Red Devils need Solskjaer more than ever.

His staff includes Mike Phelan, back to Old Trafford since the Ferguson era and majorly benefits the players in the manner that he has a better understanding about the club and player dynamics and ensuring that they perform to their potential. Also to support Solskjaer are Michael Carrick and Kieran McKenna, who have struck a balance with the manager as well as the players.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has to be given the job. He understands the culture and DNA of this club as good as anyone and has the potential to lead us for the coming years. Why spend £50m bringing in an outsider? You’re not going to find a better fit for THIS job than Ole. #mufc

Solskjaer has brought back the Pogba that United fans have been waiting for so long. The mastermind of all United attacks, he himself has scored in almost each game. Rashford is in the form of his life, Martial’s looking good, Lingard has been fantastic and etc. Each player has flourished under him and thus the question – Why Ole Solksjaer is the right man for the job? He’s turned it around in no time and thus the question should have been a rhetorical one.
