Solskjaer future with United in doubt

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s future as Manchester United manager has been questioned by former United

and England defender Rio Ferdinand, who called for the “baton to be handed over”.

Solskjaer is under intense pressure following Saturday’s home defeat by Manchester City and the 5-0 thrashing

by Liverpool last month.

“From where he came in to where he got us at the beginning of this season, I think it’s positive,” said Ferdinand.

Solskjaer has found himself under increased scrutiny after the 2-0 derby defeat, which came 13 days on from the humiliating 5-0

home loss to Liverpool.

United have picked up just four points from their past six league games and are sixth in the table,

nine points behind leaders Chelsea.

With several United players away on international duty, Solskjaer has returned to Norway to spend a few days with his family,

and it is understood he has given his non-international players some time off.

“I look at our team every week and wonder what we are going to do, tactically,” added the 43-year-old,

who won six league titles in 12 years at United.

“I don’t see any philosophy or an identity in the United way of playing, whatever that should be from the management.

I sit here confused looking at the team.

“I go back to the point. Ole was brought in with the remit to get us back to a point, a moment where you think he’s brought some foundation back.

At the beginning of this season we were thinking ‘yes, that’s it’.”

“I was always deep down a bit sceptical. Could he take us on to be champions? I wasn’t sure, I wasn’t fully convinced,

but hoped he would be able to do that.

Solskjaer will build up the team back.
