Manchester United and Arsenal have been rivals ever since the establishment of both clubs in 1878 and 1883 respectively.
Both clubs are hugely successful in the English league with Manchester United winning 20 league titles and Arsenal winning 13. Both clubs also boast to have had 2 of the most highly regarded ex-managers in Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger.
Currently, Arsenal is being managed by Spanish manager Mikel Arteta while Manchester United is managed by Norwegian manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. One similarity between both managers is that they are former players of their clubs.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Mikel Arteta are both under huge pressure for their teams to perform with both managers only recording a draw against their opponents during the last round of Premier League matches.
This article is focusing on one key difference between Mikel Arteta and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's management style since they arrived at their current teams.
Watching Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team, it is evident that he gives his players the freedom and confidence to play an expansive style of football. Along with his tactics, he lets the players try to figure some things out for themselves on the pitch.
Although Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's Manchester United team is not performing up to the expectations at the moment, there is still time to get everything right.
Mikel Arteta's management style is quite the opposite of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's. Watching the Spanish manager's team, one can ascertain that he expects his players to play within a laid out system.
The Spanish manager's team isn't quite at the level required by the majority of the fanbase but there are encouraging signs that his team could soon turn a corner.
Both managers are good ones but it is still unclear whose management style would bear fruits first. Each set of fans would surely be hoping their manager's style does first.
