Manchester United: The Solskjaer effect

United reached the quarter-finals of the Champions League for the first time since 2014 when they overturned a 2-0 first-leg deficit thanks to a stoppage-time penalty at Paris St-Germain this month.

Solskjaer became the first United manager to win his first six league games, beating a record held by Sir Matt Busby.
When Solskjaer took charge, United were sixth in the Premier
League and 11 points off the top four.



Solskjaer is United's fourth permanent manager since Sir Alex Ferguson retired in 2013.

Ferguson led the club to their twentieth top-flight title and David Moyes was earmarked because the Scot's long-term successor. He was awarded a six-year contract but was sacked in his 1st season.

Former Netherlands and Barcelona boss louis van Gaal left after 2 seasons accountable despite winning the fa Cup in his final game.

Mourinho delivered League Cup and Europa League success in his 1st season, and a Premier League runners-up spot in his second.

This season, United's points tally was closer to the underside of the league than the top, when Solskjaer - who started his coaching career as reserve team boss at old Trafford - came.

The team had scored solely 29 goals in their opening 17 Premier League fixtures under Mourinho while also conceding 29, with many fans critical of the Portuguese's type of soccer.

A thumping 5-1 victory in Solskjaer's 1st match at Cardiff - where he was relegated from the Premier League during an eight-month spell as manager in 2014 - immediately raised morale.

That was swiftly followed by victories at Tottenham, Arsenal and Chelsea with a return to a more attacking kind of play.

"Over some short months fans have witnessed a turnaround that even the most optimistic couldn't have foretold," read a Manchester United Supporters' Trust statement.
