Manchester United

Ole leadership hailed by Reds ace

5th February 2019, 03:32 by Michael Holland

Manchester United's players feel "free" under the leadership of caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Ander Herrera has revealed.

There has been a complete turnaround in fortunes at Old Trafford since the Norwegian replaced Jose Mourinho, with the Reds going on an unbeaten eight-match run.

It remains to be seen if Solskjaer will get the job on a permanent basis but he can strengthen his chances even more this month if United see off Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League.

Herrera has refused to weigh in on whether Solskjaer should get the job permanently or compare what he has done to predecessor Mourinho, but dropped a huge hint that it is a much happier camp these days.

"We are very happy with him at the moment but it's not my decision," he said. "I'm not going to do comparisons. I am only going to speak about what is happening now. I'm not comparing. We are very happy with him, everyone feels free.

"We're playing with a lot of freedom, this is one of the things he is talking about every day."
