In an interview given to Sky Sports, Luke Shaw said that he had ‘no clue’ Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would be appointed as Manchester United’s interim manager.
After Jose Mourinho was sacked on December 18 after a 3-1 loss to Liverpool at Anfield, Solskjaer was brought in as the caretaker manager.
Interestingly enough, he came to know about this first from his girlfriend.
“The truth? My girlfriend told me,” Shaw told Sky Sports.
“I woke up in the morning and had a shower and she ran out of the room and told me.
“I did not have a clue, I didn’t look at my phone or anything. That’s how I found out… from my girlfriend.”
The English left-back asserted that Solskjaer’s presence has managed to create a positive vibe at the club in such a short period of time.
“I think you can see from the outside how much he has changed things in such a short space of time,” he said.
“He is just a really positive manager, he knows what the club needs and also what the fans want in the way we are playing.
“He’s bringing that attacking, quick-play back to Old Trafford. I’m sure the fans are going to appreciate that as much as we do.”
