The Man United boss is facing a new wave of criticism after his side’s underwhelming start to the new campaign.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer signed a new three-year deal at Old Trafford earlier this summer, extending his stay at the club until 2024. The English giants have displayed full support for the Norwegian boss, adding Raphael Varane, Jadon Sancho, and Cristiano Ronaldo to his squad. However, Man United’s performances at the start of the season have been far from convincing.
The Red Devils suffered a discouraging 1-0defeat
against Aston Villa this weekend, generating more criticism toward Solskjaer and his side’s lack of consistency.
Solskjaer’s former teammate
believes the Norwegian might be dismissed if he fails to end the club’s five-year trophy drought.
He toldDaily Mail
"Without a doubt there is pressure on him this year to win something. If he doesn't win something, he knows the writing is on the wall.
"They have made the big signings in [Raphael] Varane and [Jadon] Sancho. That would be enough but then [Cristiano] Ronaldo becomes available, United acquire him and they need to see results now.
"Ole is still a young manager and he is gaining experience while on the job. At the top level he only knows United and that is a hard job to leave. I think he is progressing but he needs to take it to the next level.
"I think everybody is willing him to do well, they want him to do well because he is a Manchester United legend. That gives him some scope but you have to emphasise, he needs to win something. It's not rocket science."
Manchester United are currently fourth in the Premier League, having collected 13 points from six games. The Red Devils will face Villarreal in the Champions League on Wednesday, before meeting Everton in their next league match three days later.
