Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been snubbed by Matteo Darmian after moving the Italian out of Manchester United, with the defender choosing to refer to Jose Mourinho and Louis van Gaal as “great coaches” when reflecting on his time in England.
The 29-year-old full-back has completed a return to his homeland at Parma after four years at Old Trafford.
Darmian saw much change during his time with United, having been signed by Van Gaal and collected more major silverware with Mourinho at the helm.
He struggled to nail down a regular role under any of his bosses, with only three outings seen under Solskjaer.
Having now been offloaded by the Red Devils, Darmian has overlooked his most recent coach when taking a look back on a spell in Manchester which delivered 92 appearances and one goal.
“Van Gaal and Mourinho are two great coaches, they have won a lot, you know them,” Darmian said at his official unveiling at Parma.
“They are two great coaches who have left me something positive and I thank them.”
