According to journalist Duncan Castles, Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has recorded the worst win rate percentage out of every former boss since the post-Fergie era, including being just 10% above Gary Neville’s Valencia – with many supporters absolutely baffled by the statistic.
As per the aforementioned numbers, Solskjaer has recorded an abysmal 28.6% win rate since taking permanent charge last season – prompting fans to ramp up the criticism now more than ever.
The Norwegian recently led United to a 2-1 Europa League away defeat at the hands of Astana, with Jesse Lingard notching them into the lead with a wondergoal before the home side clawed their way back to a shock victory.
Following the encounter, journalist Castles posted an update to his managerial record on social media – with famous flops like David Moyes and Louis Van Gaal having won twice as many games in charge.
Here’s how fans responded to the alarming numbers on social media.
Scary set of stats that…

Ole’s record is shocking. All for given mangers time etc but they should still have their team perform to some degree. Look at Frank’s Chelsea. But I suspect Ole will.get until end of season at least.

I’ve seen people here arguing that his games as temporary manager should be included; well if we’re using that logic, then he has had two transfer windows to buy players and has only bought 3. He’s had two transfer windows to offload deadwood and he’s only offloaded 4.
