UNITED LATEST: Brendan Rodgers on four-man shortlist EXCLUSIVE, Zidane & Conte also eyed to replace Solskjaer
Jamie Carragher believes Manchester United need a better manager as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer does not compare to the Premier League’s elite.
He said: “On Monday, I wasn’t actually trying to be critical of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. I actually think he’s done a really good job to this point.
“I don’t want to get involved in a slanging match, I know Ole said something back and rightly so, he should back his own corner but, this thing about asking for managers to be sacked, I’m not comfortable saying that when it’s “sacked”, someone should go.
“But when we talk about Manchester United as a team, we’re comfortable saying Fred’s not good enough, McTominay’s not good enough and they need a new midfield player, so I don’t feel too bad in terms of saying United need a better manager.
“Solskjaer is not a manager for United when you want to go to the next level. Now it’s the big boys. And Solskjaer will never be Jurgen Klopp, Pep Guardiola or Thomas Tuchel.”
