Manchester United player, Luke Shaw has revealed the impact manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has had on his career.

The 24-year old looked destined to leave the club before the arrival of Solskjaer who replaced Jose Mourinho in December 2018.

Shaw who struggled in 2018 has maintained a regular start since Solskjaer arrived and has now credited the Norwegian for the improvement.

On the impact Solskjaer has had on his career, Shaw described it to Manchester United's official website as "A massive one.

“He's helped me a lot on the pitch, but more so he's been one of the biggest influences off the pitch too, with the way he handles players.

“He knows what players need. I had a difficult couple of years before he came in; I think maybe he realised that and knew what I needed.

"He’s really helped me off the pitch. He obviously believes in me, he tells me that.

“That’s the confidence you need as a player: to have the manager believe in you.”

Shaw also revealed that the vibe in the dressing of late has been a positive one.

“There really is a great feel about this group of lads now,” he added.

“And that has been the case for a while. I've seen a lot of changes during my time at United and I have to say that Ole has been responsible for a large amount of the improvements around the place.

“When he came in, he knew what was needed, what had to change to get things up and running again.

"He's signed people who aren't just good players, but also really good lads as well.

"They've integrated in the squad really well and brought a bit more energy and togetherness in the group.”
