Former Manchester United player and current coach Michael Carrick has revealed that the players are bouncing around the place after winning the first five games under caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
United were in deep trouble this season, and were floundering well off the pace in terms of the title and the top four race before Jose Mourinho was sacked, but have since rejuvenated their season with five wins on the trot.
Carrick has said that there has been a major improvement in the morale of the team since the arrival of the Norwegian and that the players are happy to be playing again.
“As you can imagine, it’s quite a happy camp,” he told the club’s website.
“When you’re winning football matches, you can’t put a price on the feeling that gives you, and the confidence and the belief.
“You almost sense a calmness when you’re winning games. It’s great to see the lads enjoying themselves. The football’s flowing, the training’s good, they’re bouncing around the place, and it’s nice to see.”
“Ole’s got that personality that rubs off on everybody, he’s so positive, he’s so upbeat all the time. I think you can see that rubbing off on individuals, and that goes a long way to bringing the best out of the players.”
It remains to be seen how much improvement there is in the squad, with Solskjaer facing his first big test when the team face Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League on Sunday. If they can win that game as well, it will be proper indication of the improvement in the team.
