Solskjaer Was Not A Bad Manager, His Failure To Implement One Aspect Of Modern Football Affected Him


Manchester United fired Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after a string of dismal outcomes. According to sources, Ralf Rangnick would take over as temporary manager until the end of the season, when a permanent manager is more likely to be named.

One could feel or think that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was a horrible manager based on Manchester United's poor performance under his leadership. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, on the other hand, was not a bad manager, but his failure to adapt one component of contemporary football had an impact on him. So, what component of modern football did Ole Gunnar Solskjaer overlook?

It's a game called "Juego de Posición." This is the strategy that the best managers in the world use to build winning teams in their clubs (albeit with slightly varying applications). What is a Posicion Game? And what purpose does this technique serve for Pep Guardiola, Thomas Tuchel, Jürgen Klopp, and others?

The goal of Jeugo De Posición, also known as Positional Football, is to establish superiority in all parts of the field. The players are given a systematic guideline to play under an organized scheme when they play Juego de Posicion.

Four vertical lines and a few horizontal lines divide the playing field. There are various zones that players must occupy at specific times. These zones must be inhabited based on the conditions, such as the ball's position.

In Juego de Posición, a player selects his next move by looking at the location of the ball, their teammates' positions, and their opponents' positions. This gives Pep Guardiola, Thomas Tuchel, and Jürgen Klopp's players an advantage in every part of the game, which is why they are frequently left one on one with their opponents.

Sadio Mane, Diogo Jota, Mohamed Salah, Bernardo Silva, Raheem Sterling, Gabriel Jesus, Kevin De Bruyne, and Callum Hudson-Odoi are frequently seen going one on one with opponents to create goalscoring opportunities.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's failure to apply the Juego de Posición had an impact on him, as the aforementioned clubs were superior in every way. Even lower-league clubs such as Aston Villa, Brighton and Hove Albion use Juego de Posición (the only difference being that they have lesser quality players).

This was the reason for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's demise, not because he was a lousy manager.
