Romelu Lukaku has identified the one huge difference between former Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The burly Belgian striker is returning to form along with his team, which has won every single game under their interim coach.
United won last night’s F.A. Cup 4th round clash with Arsenal 3-1 at the Emirates. Lukaku crucially set-up his team’s opening goals.
He’s pinpointed how the team has turned its season around under Solskjaer, as well as revealing some insight into Norwegian’s coaching methods.
“There is a lot of belief. The manager gives confidence to everyone. You know when you are going to play and when you’re not going to play,” he said after a man-of-the-match performance at the Emirates.
“When you play you know why and when you don’t he tells you why not and that’s the big difference.
“We have a young squad and that’s important. For young players, you need to know what to do and what not to do.
“I have been in the game ten years and been in a lot of dressing rooms we have to be humble at times – we need a lot of communication and Ollie does that well.
“Every manager has his own way of working Mourinho had a good way of working and so does Ollie.”
The 25-year-old also spoke about the fiercely healthy competition he and his fellow attackers face each match.
He said: “Yes it is tough and intense – but in a good way. It’s all about the team.
“We try to push each other to make sure we win because we know that we are still not in the greatest position in the League, but we all want to be in the top positions.
“We want to win a trophy as well. The manager has done a great job so yes, credit to him but to the players as well and the team. Everyone wants to play for the team.
“It’s the team above everything.”
How far can OGS take United this season? Does he deserve the job on a permanent basis?
