Former Liverpool man, Graeme Souness, has sympathised with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer over the amount of pressure he’s currently facing.

The Manchester United manager is under fire for not being able to motivate his players to consistently perform, and there’s talk of an imminent sack.

Solskjaer’s woes took a turn for the worse this week, after United lost to Arsenal and Istanbul Bakasehir within a space of four days, and Souness, who himself has been in a similar situation says he understands.

Speaking when asked about Solskjaer’s current situation, the pundit said: “I have been a manager, I’ve been sacked, I’ve been a manager under pressure, and it’s not an easy time for Ole. He’s only ever been one game away from everything being wrong at the football club, and that’s the price on the ticket when you’re at Manchester United.”

Interestingly though, Solskjaer isn’t bothered about the sack rumours, as he’s maintained his relationship with the United higher-ups is very fine.
