After the game between Manchester United and Manchester City last week, so many football stars have released statements concerning the game. Kevin De Bruyne has also released a statement that shows Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s style of play is very unpredictable to the EPL’s managers.
Although, the game didn’t go in the favor of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, as Manchester United lost the game 2 goals to nothing courtesy of an own goal from Eric BaiOLOlly and a simple finishing from ,. Cristiano Ronaldo could not get on the scoresheet against a more technical Pep Guardiola’s side.
Kevin De Bruyne while talking about the game said, before the derby, Manchester City only trained for just 10 minutes before beating Manchester United 2-0 in the EPL. He said Manchester City always train well before a game, but the training will be according to the opponent’s styles of play.
De Bruyne said because Pep Guardiola could not foretell Manchester United’s style of play before that game, he asked them to go home from the training ground after just 10 minutes.
He said Pep Guardiola could not know whether United would be playing five players at the back or three players in the attack. This was according to what he told the MidMid podcast.
According to this statement, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may not be having results for now, but his style of play is a turn in the flesh of coaches. This is because his style of play is very unpredictable. He rotates his team and as well rotates his team formation.
This is what is working for Thomas Tuchel at Chelsea. His style of play is unpredictable. You can’t know who will score for Chelsea in a game. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may not be having results currently, but the fact that he makes his game so difficult for other managers to read is a good thing. Hopefully with time, things will start working well for Manchester United.
