"Why Manchester United Shouldn't Sack Ole Gunnar Solskjaer" - Ian Ladyman

For Ian Ladyman, a reporter for the Daily Mail, Manchester United must keep Solskjaer for the time being. Although he is convinced United will not win the title under the Norwegian coach, Ladyman believes that in the market there is not someone capable of taking over the club.

Three losses, two wins, one draw and one problematic game is Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's record in the last 6 games at the helm of Manchester United. Already, several supporters and legends of the club are asking for his head.

For him, despite the results, Solskjaer brings something else to the club. “At Old Trafford, there is a lot of pressure. They have also felt the impact of the pandemic. Of course, they need a league title after eight years. But after the collapse of the European Super League, they also need to be in the top four for sporting and commercial relevance.

After the reign of David Moyes, Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho, Solskjaer gives them this. It's not a beautiful football. It’s not a story that would have made a lot of noise in Roy of the Rovers, but it is important. United cannot afford to fall back into the field again," he explains.

“I don't think United will win the Premier League with Solskjaer in charge. I've said it before, and despite all the gradual improvements his team has made, I still believe it. I think he's a fair manager but at least a mark below what he should be. But that doesn't mean United should fire him. Not now, not yet”, explains the journalist.
