Manchester United need to sign top players to strengthen key areas in the winter transfer window.
Still, legendary defender Paul Parker believes that Solskjaer has already made “the best signing” possible for the club by bringing back assistant manager Mike Phelan, who was a key figure at Old Trafford from 2008 to 2013 when Sir Alex Ferguson was in charge of the club.
Parker claimed (TalkSport):
“Micky Phelan may be the best signing that Manchester United have made, him coming back.”
Manchester United have won five out of five fixtures so far under the management of interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
If the Red Devils win their next fixture against Tottenham Hotspur at the Wembley Stadium, then the Norwegian manager will break Sir Matt Busby’s 73 year-old record of winning the most games on the trot to kick start the managerial career at Old Trafford.
Solskjaer does not really care about the record (Goal), but it would be a massive achievement.
Spurs are third in the Premier League and they have scored 10 goals without conceding in their last two games in all competitions. So, this would be a big test for the 45-year-old United boss.
Our interim boss has done just OK with Molde and under Phelan, Hull City were relegated from the Premier League in 2017. Nevertheless, the duo are doing wonders at the moment and if United can beat Spurs, then I’d be confident that Solskjaer is the man for the job and should be handed a permanent contract by the club.
