Man United urged to sack Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in order to progress

Manchester United’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward has been urged by Danny Mills to sack Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in order for the Reds to progress as the Norwegian’s position continues to come under intense criticism. 

Solskjaer was appointed as United’s interim manager in December 2018 following the sacking of current Spurs manager Jose Mourinho.

Following a rich vein of form including a stunning 3-2 Champions League comeback against Ligue 1 giants Paris-Saint Germain the Norwegian’s position was subsequently made permanent in March 2019.

Solskjaer helped guide the Reds to a top-four finish after finishing in third place at the end of the 2019-20 season, although silverware did end up eluding the current boss after crushing semi-final defeats in both the FA Cup and Europa League meant the Reds finished last campaign empty handed.

After a recent spate of disappointing performances at the beginning of the 2020-21 season and with an extremely tough batch of fixtures throughout October to come, Solskjaer has once again found his job come under threat.

According to former professional Danny Mills who spoke live on TalkSPORT earlier today Reds’ executive vice-chairman Woodward should considering ditching Solskjaer, as quoted by Express, Mills said: “What can Manchester United do right now to change what they’re doing on the pitch? The only thing you can do is change the manager.

“Let’s say Leeds lose their manager right now, [Marcelo] Bielsa goes, he’s had enough, he walks out.

“Okay, who do I want to replace him? You start looking at the names and you go: ‘[Jose] Mourinho, yes, Pep [Guardiola] yes, [Jurgen] Klopp, yes, [Carlo] Ancelotti, yep, Brendan Rodgers, yep, David Moyes, probably, Frank Lampard, yes, [Mikel] Arteta, yes’.

“And then you start to think about Ole Gunnar Solskjaer – not convinced.

“He’s half way down the list at least and that’s without the likes of [Mauricio] Pochettino coming into the mix, people who are out of a job right now.

“So the only thing you can change at Manchester United to improve them and improve the mentality, is the manager.

“He’s not necessarily a bad coach but he’s inexperienced at this level and he looks out of his depth at times.”

      You can give ole a sort of new players ( his choice of player) but we’d still lose because ole won’t get the best out them. He is inexperienced and that’s the major issue.

    Or, the manager could make changes to achieve that. Or, players could perform as directed. Or both.

    Manchester United manager doesn’t not get support from the Management. They can replace OLE but whenever Manager who will be appointed won’t succeed as long as the management will not support him. We are sick and tired of those management bosses. They need to be replaced as well.

  5. Shaun Cleophas says:

    Sacking Ole is not the answer… We can’t change manager when things don’t go our way. Players need to step up, show guts and determination. Macquire you need to set an example and get some Roy Keane in you. Come on boys!!! Giggsy with your experience you should be part of team.
