Former Manchester United defender, Gary Neville, has identified two major problems for the club’s manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, this season.
According to Neville, the two key problems for Solskjaer at Old Trafford is that the Norwegian needs to deliver a trophy with Cristiano Ronaldo now in his team and the Red Devils must improve their performances going forward.
The former defender stated this ahead of Man United’s Premier League clash with Leicester City on Saturday.
“If Ole had been the manager in the post-Sir Alex Ferguson slipstream, he would be gone by now,’ Neville told Sky Sports.
“But because of those bad experiences that United have had through getting rid of managers after a year, two years, eight months, they are going to live with him and believe in the project for a longer period and I think probably it is the right way to go because they’ve had bad experiences through changing managers.
“It costs more money sometimes to change.”
Neville added, “What I do think now, three years in, this is his third full season… performance has to improve,’ he added.
“So the problems that Ole has got at the moment is Ronaldo coming means it’s make or break.
“You have to win with Ronaldo, you have to win a trophy. He’s not coming here not to win a trophy and be second, third and fourth.
“Second thing is the performances are poor. You [Paul Scholes] have said the last couple of games… I don’t think they have even played well enough in a lot of the games they have won.”
