Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku has revealed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer immediately declared his intention to play attacking football when he took over as manager.
The Norwegian was appointed as Red Devils boss in December replacing Jose Mourinho, whose tactics and playing style had led to reports he had become an unpopular figure with some players.
However, it has been a different story since Solskjaer took the managerial hot seat at Old Trafford and, under his watch, United have scored 29 goals in 13 Premier League games.
That seemed impossible just a few months ago, but Solskjaer’s offensive tactics have made a real change to United’s fortunes on the pitch.
“I wasn’t there when he arrived,” Lukaku said in a Twitter Q&A session.
“When I came back he was really positive. He wanted to play attractive football, score a lot of goals and win games and, for me, it sounded like music to my ears.”
Lukaku has also seen a huge upswing in his own personal form since Solskjaer’s appointment.
The Belgian had scored just two goals in the last 16 games under Mourinho, but netted in both of his first two matches under Solskjaer.
The striker is currently injured and missed the Red Devils' last match before the international break - a 2-1 FA Cup defeat against Wolves.
The 25-year-old could have a huge role to play in the final months of the season, with Solskjaer’s men in the hunt for a top-four spot and Champions League glory.
