Yeah it just proves that he is not a top coach because ball possession is essential for the likes of Pep, Klopp & TuchelCoaching for sure.
I wanted Ole to succeed badly at United, but I don't think he have the ability to do it.
The way I see it, Ole never think that keeping possession is important, unlike our other rivals coaches. The way you see our midfield playing under Ole, it was quick transition and high risk passes to try opening up the defense 90% of the time. Which would work well if you're playing counter attacks, but would not be effective if you're playing a well organized team who played low block defense.
Tonight match just highlight this even more. Because when you're down 10 men then keeping possession isn't a luxury anymore, it' become a necessity. And I think it's the same reason why United under Ole have crumbled late in matches when they have something to hold on too. They can't see out matches because they can't hold on to the ball.
