Solskjaer must get used to calls for his sack— says former Manchester United coach

Former Manchester United assistant coach, Steve McClaren, has warned Olé Gunnar Solskjaer he must get used to calls for him to be sacked if he wants to have some peace.

According to McClaren, Solskjaer has been under pressure from his early days as Manchester United coach, and what is happening now isn’t new at all.

He added that calls for the Norwegian to be sacked have stemmed from fans’ frustration with the mixed results the club has had during his time, with passion and love for the club also playing a role.

Speaking on talkSPORT Breakfast recently, McClaren said, “I think he’s had this from day one, from coming in.

“He had a honeymoon period and got the job, and they’ve had spells [of bad form]. He had it last season, two or three times, where it was ‘Ole for the sack’.

“But they finished the season very well and started this season very poorly, so two or three times already [there have been calls for his sacking].

“It’s bound to get to you. It’s just the sheer frustration and you can’t do anything about it.

“It’s frustration not just of results but also of the players, and to finally get a result like that when needed – wow!

“As a manager it’s such a big relief and you can breathe easy and sleep easy for the next few weeks, but then it starts again.”

Manchester United are yet to win a game at home this season, but have claimed maximum points away from home.

We are currently 14th on the league table, after seven matches, 8 points behind leaders Leicester City.
