Ole’s appointment didn’t come as surprise considering how he has turned fortunes at Old Trafford since Mourinho left.
However, since Ole’s appointment is not a surprise we believe the Red Devils took a massive gamble in appointing the Norway international. He might have brought back the joy and the euphoria on the other side of Manchester. But he doesn’t have a good history in managing teams in top-level football leagues. Well who knows, maybe the gamble will be worth it in real time.
On the other hand, we all know him that he has been a player and now managing the team he once played for. Therefore this means, he has the DNA of the team and he knows the requirement of Manchester United as a club.

With rumours circulating that Gareth Bale might be leaving Real Madrid, Ole might consider the Welshman’s service at Old Trafford. But if this deal is to go through what will this means to Alexis Sanchez? Interesting times ahead of us indeed.
