Solskjaer’s first two years at Man Utd compared to Ferguson and Mourinho

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has now been in charge at Manchester United for two years since replacing Jose Mourinho.

It’s fair to say it’s been a turbulent two years at Old Trafford under the Norwegian, who have experienced some real highs and lows over the last 24 months.

United are a club famed for having brilliant managers, from Matt Busby to Sir Alex Ferguson.

But Solskjaer’s managerial style is a slightly different mould to those two those two club legends.

In many ways, the baby faced assassin has replicated his playing days, starting off slow but clawing things back at the end of the season – as shown by last term’s heroics.

Once again this year, the Red Devils got off to a slow start, but now seem to be on the right track, although unsurprisingly, they have a tendency to concede first.

Ed Woodward and co. have put a lot of faith in Solskjaer by giving him the time and money to build the squad he wants, much unlike Jose Mourinho.

But how does his record compare to the likes of Mourinho and Ferguson, as well as Louis van Gaal?

Here's an in-depth look at the record of the four men who have been in the hot seat for more than a season in recent years.
