Duncan Castles joined Ian McGarry on the latest edition of the Transfer Window Podcast as they discussed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s situation at Manchester United.
Out of the 52 games the Norwegian has had in charge of the club, the former Cardiff boss has managed to win 23, drawing 13 and losing 16 in the process, giving him an average point tally of 1.58 per game and 82 in total across all matches, per Transfermarkt.
“I know for a fact that there are men in that training ground, in that camp, who do not believe Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is a top-level manager and aren’t impressed by many of the things he’s told them to do”, said Castles.
Intriguingly enough, United have been on a roll lately, tallying four wins and two draws in the last six games they’ve played across all competitions. Still, when managers with a proven track-record such as Mauricio Pochettino and Max Allegri are currently without clubs, it’s hard to argue that Solskjaer’s general CV matches up to theirs.
The Daily Star have previously claimed that the club legend will be sacked should he miss out on European qualification this season and, while United are currently in the top five, they have proven inconsistent for much of the campaign prior to their recent form, losing to the likes of Newcastle United, Burnley and Watford.
Man United fans, are you happy with Ole’s management so far or do you think he’s simply not good enough for such a historic team? Let us know in the comments below!Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
