Former Premier League chairman Simon Jordan has casted huge doubt on manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’ ability to transform the club’s fortunes and take United back to glory days.

Speaking on talkSPORT radio about the Norwegian, the ex-Crystal Palace chairman said:

“Man United have got a lot of work on hand.

“It’s interesting Ed Woodward has come out this week and said they aren’t where they should be and that they’re going to be spending money.

“But I really don’t think the manager is capable of managing whoever they put in there to get Man United back to the level they need to be.

“Would I give Solskjaer £150m or £200m to spend? No. I wouldn’t have given him the job in the first place. I think it was a poor decision; I think it was an unavoidable mistake.”

The Norwegian has received criticisms for his handling of the team because of inconsistency in results and performances.
