Former Manchester United defender, Gary Neville, has revealed that he recently texted Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, saying, “I just told him to keep going.”
Solskjaer has been under immense pressure lately, following United poor run of games this season.
The Red Devils sit at 6th on the league table, after 11 games, and are 9 points adrift of table toppers, Chelsea.
There have been plenty calls for the Norwegian to be axed from his position, as a way forward for United, including from former players like Rio Ferdinand.
But amid it all, Neville has remained supportive of Solskjaer, and when speaking about it during a recent interview with Daily Mail, he said it’s because he doesn’t think it’s right for someone in his profession to publicly call for a manager’s sack.
In his own words, “There are people saying this is the worst moment of my punditry career.
“They say I am not being honest. But I am not paid on TV to sack managers and I ain’t doing it. I know the impact of Gary Neville saying a Man United manager should be sacked.
“For the pundits who have said it then ‘Well done’ but it’s not my style. When I see another pundit calling for any sacking, I cringe. My stomach turns. My line is crossed with that. Maybe their line is in a different place.”
