‘How long has he been there?’ Liverpool legend poses Ole Gunnar Solskjaer question

Former Manchester City, Newcastle United and Liverpool player, Dietmar Hamann has questioned Manchester United’s decision to keep Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on the job, despite recent underwhelming performances from the team.

The Red Devils have won just three of their last nine matches across all competitions, including losses to Liverpool, Aston Villa and Leicester City.

United also managed to salvage a point in midweek against Atalanta in the UEFA Champions League, thanks to a late goal by Cristiano Ronaldo.

And Hamann, who believes Solskjaer is to blame for the poor run, insists the Norwegian is not capable of bringing the change we desire.

“They’re not making any progress, if you look at the team and the performances so far, it’s not good enough,” Hamann told Metro Sports.

“People say Ronaldo is the problem, but where would they be without his goals.

“He’s scoring important goals at important times for Manchester United and without his goals they would be out of the Champions League by now.

“You can’t win every game, but they’re not playing good football, it isn’t a great watch and they’re underperforming massively.

“With the squad they’ve assembled and how long the manager has been there for now, you can’t just say ‘give him another transfer window’.

“They’ve spent money every transfer window and the football isn’t any better from Moyes to the managers since.

“I think it’s a matter of when and not if and there’s a lot of his ex-teammates who don’t want to call him out or say it as it is.

“If anyone thinks he’s the ideal solution for Manchester United, then I think they couldn’t be more wrong.”
