Ole Gunnar Solskjaer does something even Sir Alex Ferguson didn’t manage at Manchester United

Manchester United’s interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has already made a small piece of history with the Red Devils.

The Norwegian tactician has made a great start at Old Trafford, winning two out of two with a 5-1 win away to Cardiff City last week and a 3-1 win at home to Huddersfield Town today.

Remarkably, in achieving this feat, Solskjaer is one of only five United managers to win both of their first league matches in charge of the Red Devils.

The last one was the much-maligned Jose Mourinho, who was sacked last week, and look how that turned out.

Then again, it’s something even the legendary Sir Alex Ferguson couldn’t do with United, and he ended up being pretty decent, if memory serves.

At this stage, stats won’t tell us a huge amount about Solskjaer and what kind of a job he can do at United, but it’s been an encouraging start for him, especially given the state of the squad when he took over.
