MUN 0:1 ASV: Ole Gunnar's Tactical Approach Signals Manchester United Need A New Manager

Two home consecutive defeats is uncharacteristic for a prestigious club like Manchester United considering the abundance of young talented and experienced players in the Squad. This Manchester United team, the very way they play now is no way near the famous play of Manchester United under Sir Alex Ferguson which was based on counter attacking football.

Ole Gunnar's idea is to play the Legendary Scot way, and that is why he was keen on the signing of fast forward players like Jadon Sancho, Amad Dialo and of course, keeping Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood. However, to play this way, it is important to forged your Midfield with well drilled players capable of condensing the central areas and releasing the forward players to devasting effect. In this article, we shall look at the tactical Formations by Ole Gunnar that shows he may be clearly out of idea on how to get the best out of his current squad and therefore should be replaced.

#1. Moving Paul Pogba To the Left Side forward isn't ideal.

With Juventus, Pogba played a more central role, predominantly in the left side midfield and was influenced by the the likes of Andrea Pioli and Arturo Vidal who marshalled the deep midfield and was the catalyst in their counter attacking football. His role was likened to Paul Scholes and that was Jose Mourinho and Manchester United made a club record deal to sign him in the summer of 2016.

Paul Pogba's role with the France National team has always been as a central midfielder in the deep Midfield with a holding midfielder. He has the tendency to roam the central areas and use his visionary long range passes to invite play and start counter attacks. That is something Ole Gunnar Should be keen to get from the Frenchman and not forging him into a forward player.

#2. Ole Gunnar's Inability To Forge A Formula Past Defensive Team Is A Worry.

Every team plays a certain way but can show to a more defensive shape if their opponents posses more threat, and that is what Aston Villa did to Manchester United on Saturday. But as a manager, the idea would be to always find a way to get victories rather than complain about decisions that didn't get your way.

Aston Villa started in a 3-5-2 formation, but to break their walls, the ideal situation would be to use fast trickery players like Jadon Sancho as wingback, to always force them out wide, while demanding that crosses should be occasionally be delivered into their boxes for the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Maguire, Paul Pogba, Varane and other to profit from.

In a nutshell, Ole Gunnar should have opted for a 3-4-1-2 and can always change as the opponents changes their approach.

#3. Ole Gunnar's May Have No Tactical Plan With Donny de Beek And Other Fringe Players.

Donny de Beek is a very good player that can slot into any of the best teams in the World, had he chosen Barcelona over Manchester United, Barcelona may as well be better than they are in the midfield.

Managers like Pep Guardiola demands for players that can improve his options for better team output. But in the case of Ole Gunnar, he seems to be buoyant by his squad size, sticking to the team that gives him victory at the moment and keeping the rest on the bench until the need for them arises. His tactical changes are often inappropriate and he alone should be solely blamed if Manchester United woes continues.
