Liverpool legend sends message to the Manchester United board over Solsksjaer’s future

Liverpool legend John Barnes has urged the Manchester United board not to sack manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, but instead they should back the Norwegian despite the team’s inconsistency.

Speaking to BonusCodeBets Solskjaer’s position at Old Trafford, Barnes said: “Manchester United have great players and when they need to perform, they do so but that is where the inconsistency stems from. They need to stick with Ole (Gunnar Solskjaer) no matter what, whether they finish in the top four or fifteenth.

“The team needs to step up and show what they are made of, he has made that happen in some games. The negativity around the club every time a new story comes out about the manager doesn’t help, they need to put a run together where they are winning consistently.

“Just like Tottenham they should finish in the third, fourth or fifth position because they lack that winning mentality. They won’t put a decent run together where they will mount any sort of challenge to either Liverpool or Manchester City.”
