Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is “a much better manager than one 12 months ago”, says Nemanja Matic, with the Manchester United boss considered to be developing in stature as he gains greater experience.
The Norwegian was no rookie when he was back to Old Trafford as successor to Jose Mourinho in December 2018.
He had, however, spent little time coaching at the very pinnacle of the game and was thrust beneath the brightest of spotlights with the Red Devils.
Initial success in an interim role saw him surpassed a three-year contract, but questions of his suitability to a demanding submit have surfaced on a ordinary basis.
Solskjaer has usually been eager to point out that he is overseeing a long-term project at United , with there no quick restoration to be found in an ongoing effort to get a fallen giant returned on its feet.
There have been signs of encouragement of late, with the Red Devils back in competition for a top-four finish whilst additionally attaining the last-16 of the Europa League and fifth round of the FA Cup.
Matic believes Solskjaer remains the right man to guide United forward, with the Serbian midfielder impressed by the growth that has been made over the course of the remaining 12 months.
He told Sky Sports: “Every day he is improving, getting more experience. For certain he will be better and better.
“Like each and every manager – Carlo Ancelotti, now and 20 years ago he is now not the same. He knows more, he gets more experience, so it will be the equal with Ole.
“He is a a great deal better manager than one year ago, in my opinion.
“Now he knows all of the players, he knows precisely what he desires to do before the game, after the game. For his job, the ride is very important.”
A time out to Everton is next on the agenda for United, with a quick journey to Goodison Park set to be taken in on Sunday.
The Red Devils will head to Merseyside sat just three points adrift of the Champions League spots, with protective steadiness re-established and the likes of Bruno Fernandes bringing more creativity to the fold.
