Former United winger Lee Sharpe has said manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer must be feeling under pressure with reports linking former Spurs Boss Mauricio Pochettino to the United job.

Speaking about the Norwegian’s future to Sky Sports, the former Man United winger said:

“Solskjaer will have had a goal set at the beginning of the season, which I believe would have been top four.

“If they don’t get that, questions will be asked and chats will be had behind the scenes. The Pochettino situation does not help matters but I also think Ole knows the pressure that he is under.

“He knows the pressure that the club brings and he will have his own goals and his own standards that he has to meet. He doesn’t need outside influences putting extra pressure on him.”

The Argentine has publicly revealed his desire to manage in the Premier League again.
