Red devils rising once again
Whichever way you look at it, the former Molde manager has accomplished his targets this season. And it's not because I'm a United supporter. The Red Devils are back in the Champions League and eventhough this use to be standard when Ole was a playing. It is only the fourth time in seven seasons since Sir Alex retired that United has gained access into Europes elite competition.
Yes the nervousness was on level 10, with 10 being the highest. The 2 nil victory keeps the Machunians at third. Considering United were 13 points adrift in January. Which means the performance in this final match cannot cloud a remarkable turnaround.
Ole knows that the real challenge is to get back to the pinnacle of English Football. The title that United once held solely domestically. Knocking Liverpool and Manchester City off the top of their perch. Who finished 33 and 15 points ahead respectively. Is a intricate code to crack from their vantage point.
A couple of new signings definitely seems to be on the horizon. With Sancho number one if Woodward sanctions it. I personally feel like new flaws have been showing up. And its specifically when the Red Devils are pressed and given limited space. The speed of thought in possesion, the lack of movement and the inability to play out from the back. Pogba and Matic have been caught in possesion in dangerous areas where they can be hurt.
Something either needs to be worked out tactically or new players need to be recruited so that these mistakes can be nullified. All in all the end was sweet.
