The Telegraph’s Jason Burt questions Man United manager Solskjaer in a recent article.
Manchester United is going through a phase where they can now finally criticise Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The Red Devils have lost three out of their last four matches which is a concern. The Norwegian reportedly retains the complete trust of the United Board.
The Telegraph’s Jason Burt questions Man United manager and his overall impact on the team in a recent article. According to Burt, Solskjaer is nowhere good enough to manage a club of the size of Manchester United.
He also compared the Norwegian with other Premier League managers. He said, “It may be a crude measure, but here goes. If Pep Guardiola left Manchester City tomorrow, what would happen? He would be guaranteed a big job somewhere else. If Jurgen Klopp quit Liverpool, or Thomas Tuchel exited Chelsea?”
He added, “These are elite managers, after all. Now, what if Ole Gunnar Solskjaer departed Manchester United? Where would his next club be? Not even Solskjaer’s biggest supporters would argue that he could expect to be at one of Europe’s top clubs. Now ask this: if Graham Potter, Dean Smith and Thomas Frank were on the shortlist for a job along with Solskjaer, who would get it?”
He questioned Ole’s role by saying, “I would argue Solskjaer would be the fourth favourite out of that quartet. And yet he is in charge of probably the biggest club in the country. If that sounds harsh, then it is also the reality of the high-level sport. And it is time Solskjaer was held to an account equivalent to his office.”
United will face Villarreal today in their second clash of Champions League. They have already lost their opening fixture in the UEFA competition. The Red Devils were heavily criticized for their last Premier League performance against Aston Villa last week.
