Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is doing a “brilliant job” at Old Trafford, according to Luke Shaw, who says the current Manchester United team is the most confident and exciting he’s played in.
United have been in scintillating form since the resumption of the 2019-20 campaign on June 17, winning four of their last five fixtures in all competitions.
Solskjaer’s men struggled for consistency in the first half of the season, but a 16-match unbeaten run which began in January could be extended when they take in a trip to Aston Villa on Thursday.
The Red Devils are now only three points behind third-placed Leicester in the table and two adrift of Chelsea, who currently occupy the final Champions League spot.
Shaw is happy to give Solskjaer full credit for United’s recent revival, highlighting the Norwegian’s shrewd recruitment policy and man-management skills behind the scenes.
“The manager has done a brilliant job,” the Red Devils left-back told Sky Sports. “Of course the players he has brought in, the group of players now, we all get on really well and I think there is a great happiness in and around the training ground each day.
“Everyone is smiling, everyone is enjoying each other’s company and I think that is important to have a successful team.
“Everyone wants the same thing and gets along with each other and I can see a big change in the group not just on the pitch, but with each other off the pitch too.”
