Former Man Utd star defends Solskjaer

The Norwegian coach is under a lot of pressure due to his poor results.

Former

Manchester United

star Park Ji-sung believes the club should give Ole Gunnar Solskjaer a chance by the end of the season.

The recent poor results of the Red Devils have put the Norwegian coach under a lot of pressure. The defeats against

Manchester City

and

Liverpool

have angered the club's fans and this has made Manchester United's match against Watford very important today. United have won just one of their last six games, and there has been talk of possible Solskjaer replacements, including Zidane and Rodgers. However, the former Korean star defended the club's head coach, claiming that he should be given a chance.

"It’s been three years for Solskjaer as a manager and I believe that this will be the defining season for him, in terms of whether he continues at the club," Park told

GOAL

.

"I think that he deserves credit for what he's done at United, and deserves to fight [for his job] until the end of the season, but he needs to show he can continue after that.

"He did well to bring the old United spirit and culture back to us.

"Before him, we had Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho, who had reputations as world-class coaches, but it didn’t work out, so I think that United learned from those experiences and that they were key in the decision to stick with Solskjaer [after the Liverpool and City defeats].

"But the most important point is whether he can compete with Pep (Guardiola), (Jurgen) Klopp, (Thomas) Tuchel, the best coaches in the world.

“Therefore, I believe we should wait until the end of this season and then see. But if he can’t show [he's good enough], it will be difficult for him to continue."
