Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been on the receiving end in recent times due to his team’s dismal form this season. Despite the club backing the Norwegian International, many fear a mid-season sacking of the manager by the club management. It certainly seems that it is not easy to manage United and 'Before And After' photos of United managers prove the same.
After Manchester United’s recent defeat against Burnley, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looked like a tired man. Though the manager was all smiles at the press conference that followed, his face in the past revealed a different story. His photos in his initial days at the club and his images now prove that it takes a massive toll on any person who is in charge of United.

However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is not the only one to suffer. Various former managers of the club seemed to have suffered due to the pressure while being at the club. David Moyes, who took over the reins from Sir Alex Ferguson, looked bright-eyed on his first day at the job, but could not escape the pressure of fulfilling the demands of the Premier League giants.

Louis van Gaal was appointed as the club’s manager after the departure of David Moyes in 2014. He could not last more than two years at Old Trafford, and was sacked when the manager was 64, but looked older than his age. Van Gaal’s successor Jose Mourinho looked all set to dominate the Premier League when he arrived at the club in 2016. However, within three years, the job’s demand took a toll at the Portuguese tactician.

I used to think Real Madrid (2010-2013) did him, until United.
