Maybe, but I think it's more of a style problem.Give him half a season at least guys. He will come good. He has looked great against CL teams for the last 2 years, so I would not be concerned about his talent not translating from Bundesliga to Prem.
I honestly think the penalty debacle at Euros right before his transfer screwed his head up a bit. Slotting into a Man Utd team shortly after a discouraging summer isn’t an easy task at such a young age. He will get it together because he has the quality.
His style is suited for Barcelona or a team like Arsenal. We've always been about fast wingers who run at defenders. That's our philosophy, that's what we want to see, and probably what Ole is or should be aiming.
If he's not that then he will have to adapt. He has the technical quality, but haven't seen him too much to know if he has the pace.
It's very early, hopefully he can turn it around, otherwise he will be like Mata, a great player but never really fit in our style, had good/great seasons, but never a world beater for us.
