EPL: Scholes advises Man Utd on sacking Solskjaer


Former Manchester United midfielder, Paul Scholes, has urged the club to stick with under-fire boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, until at least the end of the season.

Solskjaer is into his third full season in the Old Trafford hot-seat.

The Norwegian was initially employed to replace Jose Mourinho on a caretaker basis back in December 2018.

However, he is yet to delivere any major silverware, and questions are being asked over his tactical approach after United’s mediocre start to the 2021-22 campaign.

But Scholes thinks he deserves more time after assembling an exciting squad.

Scholes told Sky Sports‘ live fan debate The Overlap: “I think he deserves a chance.

“If you think about the last three or four years about where United had been, it has been shocking, hasn’t it? It had not been great to watch before he came.

“It has took him two or three years to build a squad where we think the pieces are there to the puzzle, it’s just getting them in that right organisation.

“There was a lot of excitement at the start of the season after four or five games; they beat Newcastle (4-1) and beat Leeds (5-1) and the last two games [Villa and Everton] have been disappointing.

“But I think he deserves a chance. He has built a squad where he should be given a year, at least this season, to show that he can manage that and win trophies.”
