Robin Van Persie has identified Manchester United’s key problem under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The former United striker says that the club simply aren’t consistent enough to compete for trophies at the moment.
This is no secret, as United have only managed to win 10 out of of 26 Premier League games this season.
But the inconsistencies of the teams around them means they still have a chance of Champions League qualification after beating Chelsea 2-0 at Stamford Bridge on Monday.
Nobody can dispute Solskjaer’s record when it comes to facing the so-called big sides, but it’s when the Reds face the lesser opposition that the familiar issues return.
Van Persie criticised Solskjaer after the New Years Day defeat to Arsenal, claiming he was acting too nice in post-match interviews rather than getting stuck into his players.
But the Dutchman has backed Solskjaer to eventually get things right to Old Trafford, and still believes he is the man to take the club forward.
