Molde of Norway attacker, Leke James has predicted that Manchester United will score more goals under the new interim manager, Ole Gunnar Solksjaer, simply because the gaffer likes out-and-out attack.
In the wake of United’s 5-1 win away to Cardiff City, James, who played under Solksjaer for two seasons at Molde, believes the coach will spur The Red Devils to more victories.
James went on to affirm that Solksjaer, who is still famous for scoring United’s winning goal against Bayern Munich in the 1999 UEFA Cup of Champions final, loves to attack, unlike sacked boss, sacked Portuguese manager, Jose Mourinho.
Although the 26-year-old James revealed further that Solksjaer’s job appointment by United was a big shock to Molde’s players and officials, they all know that the gaffer deserves the top post at Old Trafford.
James emphasized: “He deserves the job, but it did come to us as a surprise because it happened really quick, very very quickly.
“His record is there for all to see considering the country he is coaching. He loves to play with his team dictating the pace, particularly in attack.
“He is aware of how important it is to defend, but his philosophy is more of playing an attacking brand of football than defending.”
