EPL: Man Utd need a better manager – Carragher


Former Liverpool defender, Jamie Carragher, has said Manchester United need a better manager than Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Carragher believes the Red Devils will never challenge Man City, Liverpool and Chelsea, until they bring in a world class tactician.

United suffered one of their worst defeats on Sunday, as rivals Liverpool thrashed them 5-0 at Old Trafford.

Although he was quick to point out Solskjaer has done a good job, Carragher feels there is simply no chance of him competing with Jurgen Klopp, Pep Guardiola and Thomas Tuchel.

“I think Ole has done a good job but to take on Klopp, Tuchel and Pep, Manchester United need a better manager.

“I wasn’t saying that on Monday in a disrespectful way, I feel for Ole – that will be the darkest day in his career. I don’t want to get involved in a slanging match, I know Ole said something back and rightly so. I’m not comfortable saying someone should be sacked – but we are comfortable saying Fred is not good enough or Scott McTominay is not good enough so I do not feel too bad saying Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is not good enough.

“Manchester United need a better manager. Ole is not a manager for Manchester United. He’s done really well but you need someone to take them to the next level. Unfortunately, Solskjaer is not Jurgen Klopp, Pep Guardiola or Thomas Tuchel. It’s staring you in the face,” Carragher said.
