Solskjaer not the right boss for Manchester United

Norwegian Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is not the right boss for Manchester United according to former Crystal Palace chairman Simon Jordan.

United surprisingly fell to Palace at Old Trafford on Sunday with Jordan Ayew and Patrick van Aanholt’s last-minute winner sandwiching a Daniel James strike for the home side.

But speaking to TalkSport, Jordan said: “On one hand you could say, two penalties put Manchester United five points better off so we would have a different look at Man United because they would be second.

“But if you look at the manner in which Man United are playing, I’m sorry because I know Man United fans will start yelling and screaming, but up to 60 minutes against Chelsea they were getting bossed.

Very Lucky

“With respect, Palace got very, very lucky yesterday (on Saturday) but looking at that performance; there is no fear factor, nobody cares about Old Trafford in way they once did because that image is gone and I don’t think it is going to come back under the stewardship of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer because part of that image, as we know, was best players winning games.

“Are you seriously saying to me that the serious times of Man United, with Liverpool and Man City disappearing into the horizon, that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is going to operate at the level that is required? I don’t think so!”

The loss came on the back of a 1-1 draw with Wolves last Monday, and also saw a second penalty failed to be converted in successive games – as Marcus Rashford saw his spot-kick hit the post.
