United defender Varane explains how Solskjaer helped him become better

Despite the short period Raphael Varane spent with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Man United, the defender insists that he learnt a lot from the Norwegian football manager.

The defender was one of the major Solskjaer signings who arrived at Old Trafford in the summer.

He moved from Real Madrid as the Red Devils looked to bolster their defensive line, although it has continued to be an issue this term.

But the Frenchman was full of praise for the Norwegian however, who had shared plenty of his knowledge and experience.

“Ole’s a very good person and humble with important values,” Varane told the Telegraph.

“In a short time here, he taught me a lot of things about the club, the mentality. He represents a lot of things about this club.”

Also, honesty was a major plus for Varane, who saw that as one of Solskjaer’s strengths as a manager.

He added: “Sometimes when you speak about something sensitive, it’s seen as a little bit negative because it’s like a weakness. But it’s not true. It’s a strength.

“When he speaks with a player, he’s honest. It’s important for a manager to be honest with his players. It was a short time working with him, but I learned a lot.”

Injury has limited Varane to just six Premier League appearances – less than half of the games played thus far.
