I don’t see him touching that system – Glenn Hoddle makes claim on Solskjaer

Former Chelsea manager, Glenn Hoddle has claimed that he doesn’t see Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, touching the system that won his side’s game at Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.

Solskjaer, who was under intense pressure after his side’s 5-0 loss to Liverpool last weekend, watched as Man United defeated Tottenham 3-0 at the weekend.

The Norwegian played a back three with Cristiano Ronaldo and Edinson Cavani playing upfront in the starting XI against Tottenham.

“I think what he has done is that he was bold enough to say I am going to play with a back three and wing-backs,” Hoddle told Premier League TV post-match.

“He sorted out his midfield and I was excited, let alone Ole, to see Cavani and Ronaldo playing up front together.

“Yes, they are old, they are past their best but they are still effective and we saw that.

“I don’t see him touching that system now. He will have to rest them from here and there but he has got pace on the bench, when you are 1-0 or 2-0 up, it’s a massive threat.

“To bring Lingard and Rashford on, he has got Greenwood in there – youngsters who are going to be hungry for 20 minutes to finish off teams.

“He has got a fantastic balance on the starting eleven and from the bench.”

Man United’s next game is against Atalanta in the Champions League on Tuesday night.
