The Norwegian coach has changed the club’s attitude to transfer, which has made some nice moves since arriving in December 2018.
Ryan Giggs expressed admiration for Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s transfer policy to Manchester United, saying that the manager’s focus on recruiting players who are inclined to integrate pays off.
Solskjær has made a number of successful signings since the beginning of his stay at Old Trafford, such as those of Harry Maguire, Daniel James and Bruno Fernandes who have shown amazing things with the Red Devil. Giggs explained that his former teammate prioritized the off-field character as much as the abilities on the field.
“Dan is not just a talented playersaid Giggs in the MUTV group discussion about James. He is a very good character and a solid boy. He wants to improve and that’s what I’ve seen for the last 18 months.
“When I visited him at Swansea he got better and had a good start to his career at United. He is also a United player and someone that United fans will enjoy he will make things happen and of course he has this one. devastating speed.
“But like I said, more than that to me, he’s a very good person. I think that’s what Ole has been trying to do in recent months, with very good people in the dressing room.”
Fernandes had a particularly big impact in a short time at Old Trafford, with three goals and four assists in just nine games after leaving Sporting CP in January. The Portuguese international helped United make an undefeated line of 11 games that lasted until football was stopped because of the pandemic.
“It’s a shame we had to stop the season because we were flyingadded Giggs. Ole started his lead with United by flying, then he had a difficult passage, and then we were on good track. But, as I said before, the players he brought in were really impressive.
“They have improved the team and the dressing room and in Fernandes we have obviously seen over the years what an effect a player can sometimes have.
“We’re talking about Eric Cantona, Robin van Persie … and I don’t compare him to them yet but he played other players and he gave everyone a boost. I still think we need four or five players, but we are probably going right direction. “
