Former Manchester United defender, Wes Brown speaks ahead of Manchester United clash against Liverpool.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer first full season in charge has not been straight-forward, but he has put Manchester United back on the right path, Brown said.

“It was fantastic to see him come back and it has been great to see him bring back some of the old values I was used to as a player there,” says Brown. “Ole learned most of his trade off Sir Alex Ferguson, so he’s bringing through some of the young lads and he’s trying to bring everybody back up to the high standards we all expect at Manchester United.

“That’s what he was like as a player, always expecting the absolute best from everyone, and I’m encouraged by what we’ve seen so far. We’ve been brilliant at times and very sloppy at other times. But I think as time goes on, it will only get better. Everyone talks about transfers, but he’s working with what he’s got and bringing through youth. It’s just about finding that consistency.”

There is plenty of work ahead for Solskjaer if he is to convince his doubters that really he is the man to take the club forward in the long-term.
