According to David Beckham, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is doing an incredible job as Manchester United manager.
Although Ole Gunnar cannot seem to get Manchester United into cup finals, Beckham is happy with his efforts.
Solskjaer has helped to restore a positive atmosphere and style of play at United since the damaging final few weeks of Jose Mourinho’s time in charge. This is in a period of two and half years since he initially took over
Solskjaer has claimed that winning trophies is not necessarily a good marker of a team’s development, but those comments, combined with United’s inability to reach cup finals and their Champions League exit group-stage last December, has led to suggestions he is not the right man to take the Red Devils onto the next stage of their development.
But Beckham, who won five Premier League titles, the Champions League and FA Cup while Solskjaer’s United team-mate from 1996 to 2003, insists he can ride out the criticism and continue to do good work.
“I’ve seen some of the criticism but I suppose when you are a manager of Man United when they’ve had success over the years that they’ve had, there was always going to be a point where people get criticised, whether it’s the players, whether it’s the owners, whether it’s the manager,” Beckham, the Inter Miami co-owner told ESPN.
“Ole’s been in the game long enough to be able to take any kind of criticism. He’s very quiet, he gets on with his job, and I think he’s done an incredible job down at United.
“The results are starting to show that. Hopefully, it continues because the fans love Ole, we all love Ole and we all want him to do well. So, when the criticism comes, he’s one person that can take it,” Beckham concluded
