9 Times That Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Deserved To Be Called One Of The Best Coaches In The 21st Century

There are a few good times under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Manchester United that showed the kind of quality he has, as a coach.

Here are some of Manchester United's comebacks under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's that makes him one of the best coaches in the world.

1. Manchester United versus Paris Saint-Germain: 3:1 (2018/2019).

This was the game that made everyone think they were back and were about to become a serious team. A weakened team without players like Paul Pogba and being 2:0 down in the first leg, just for Marcus Rashford to smash in the penalty in the last minute.

2. Manchester United versus Atalanta: 3:2 (2021/2022).

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was under pressure again. After a 4:2 defeat to Leicester City, Manchester United needed to find a win fast. The game started badly with 2 early goals from Atalanta. The second half was better, with Marcus Rashford, Harry Maguire and Cristiano Ronaldo heading in the winner.

3. Manchester United versus Everton: 3:1 (2020/2021).

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's job was under extreme pressure. When Manchester United went 1:0 down, everyone was calling for his head. A double from Bruno Fernandes and Edinson Cavani's first goal for the club turned it around and started a promising run for the red devils.

4. Manchester United versus Aston Villa: 3:1 (2020/2021).

Late into last season, the Reds had a few more games to prepare for the Europa League final. They started poorly conceding early, making people doubt how well they could do in the final. But then 3 quick goals got the team 3 points.

5. Manchester United versus Sheffield United: 3:3 (2019/2020).

Yes, this wasn't a win. But 2:0 down to a newly promoted Sheffield United after an awful first half to turn it around and score 3 in quick succession, with all scorers being academy graduates, it was a great moment.

6. Manchester United versus Southampton: 3:2 (2020/2021 season).

The away record was under serious threat. A cheap corner goal (shock) and a great free-kick from Ward-Prowse led the Red Devils 2:0 down. Then Edinson Cavani came on and changed the game, with an assist and 2 goals, with one in the last minute.

7. Manchester United versus Villarreal: 2:1 (2021/2022 season).

The first UEFA Champions League game at home for the season. Following a shock defeat to Young Boys, Manchester United needed a response. Villarreal took a shock 1:0 lead. But, the boys turned it around and scored twice, including a winner from Cristiano Ronaldo.

8. Manchester United versus West Ham United: 3:1 (2020/2021 season).

Same old story. An awful first half from the Red Devils was capped off with a goal by Soucek. Then bang, a brilliant goal by Paul Pogba and a double shortly followed up by Mason Greenwood, and then a Marcus Rashford chip to wrap up the three points.

9. Manchester United versus West Ham United: 2:1 (2021/2022 season).

A goal was conceded in the first half, shortly followed by a Cristiano Ronaldo goal. Then, in the 89th minute, Jesse Lingard struck one into the top corner. Then disaster struck; a last-minute penalty. Fantastically saved by David de Gea and they left with 3 points.
