Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo has predicted that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be a good coach in the future after he was pleased to work with him.
Man United appointed Solskjaer as interim manager in 2018 following the sacking of Jose Mourinho. The Norwegian steadied the ship and won important games including the famous 3-1 win over PSG in Parc des Princes in the Champions League.
Solskjaer eventually got the job on a permanent basis and guided United to a 3rd place finish in the Premier League. The Man United legend was gradually bringing back the winning mentality to the team when he finished in three semi-finals that same season.
In his second full season, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer guided Manchester United to a 2nd place finish in the Premier League and finished as the runners-up in the Europa League. Again, he went close to winning a trophy.
United signed Ronaldo last year in a bid to help him finally lift a trophy but his return turned out the opposite of how it was imagined and the Norwegian lost his job.
However, Cristiano Ronaldo believes Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is a top person, who will be a good coach in the future.
Speaking to Piers Morgan Uncensored, Ronaldo said: “I love [Ole Gunnar] Solskjær. I think he is a top person. I think he did a good job and needed more time, I’ve got no doubt that he’ll be a good coach in the future, I was so pleased to work with him.
“I love Solskjær. I think he was a top person, because what I keep inside my heart, it’s the heart of the persons. And Ole for me, is a top person. It’s hard to assume [the role] after Sir Alex Ferguson, but I think he did a good job.”
