Solskjaer Fires Back at Van Gaal Over Style of Football



Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has responded to Louis van Gaal’s criticism of his playing style, by insisting the focus for his team is to attack.

Van Gaal, sacked at Old Trafford in 2016, accused Solskjaer of “park the bus” tactics, similar to those employed by another former boss, Jose Mourinho.

But Solskjaer, appointed as United’s permanent manager on a three-year deal on Thursday, has defended his style.

“Louis van Gaal is entitled to his opinion.

“Some games we’ve pressed really high and won the ball up there and dominated.

“He’s probably talking more about the PSG game, which was a game that we had to defend really well in the circumstances and counter-attack.

“It’s about where you win the ball. You want to defend to win the ball to go forward. You have to win the ball to attack and for me there’s two ways.

“Can you attack quickly like we did [against Watford], why not? As long as your intention is, when you win the ball, to attack,” Solskjaer told Sky Sports.
