Aston Villa legend Gabriel Agbonlahor has urged the Manchester United board to sack current boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and replace him with the former Chelsea manager Antonio Conte following the 1-0 loss to Aston Villa on Saturday.

Chelsea won the Champions League after club legend Frank Lampard was sacked as Chelsea boss in January and replaced with Thomas Tuchel.

Agbonlahor believes sacking Solskjaer and replacing him with Conte will give Manchester United what Tuchel gave Chelsea as Conte will get the best out of Manchester United players.

“I just don’t think Ole’s the man, if that was [Antonio] Conte he’d be like okay Ronaldo is on the penalty, you haven’t got a if you don’t like it Fernandes come and sit with me, Ole doesn’t have that pull,” he told TalkSPORT.

“If I was Manchester United now, Chelsea did it with Lampard, got rid of a club legend and brought in Tuchel and look what happened. Man United need to now take Ole out of it, give him a job in the board, bring in Conte and he will get the best out of these players.

“Even the decision during the games, Maguire was limping for 10 minutes before he brought him off.

“You need a goal In the last 10 minutes and you bring on Cavani who hasn’t played any minutes this season, you’ve got Lingard there who scored a late winner against West Ham, you’ve got Sancho which you’ve brought for £70m sitting on the bench.

“I just think some of his decision have been miles off it, I think United have to bit the bullet and get rid of him, bring in Conte who’s out there, Zidane is out there in order to get better out of these players.”
