Manchester United Fan Wants Steven Gerrard To Replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer As Manager
A Manchester United fan has claimed he wants Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as manager.
United fell to a 1-0 defeat against Arsenal on Sunday and they're 15th in the Premier League table.
Two wins from six games leaves Solskjaer under immense pressure and one fan thinks Gerrard is the answer, considering his record with Scottish side Rangers.
Gerrard has guided them to the top of the Scottish Premiership and United fan Brett told talkSPORT: "I'd break the bank and go for Steven Gerrard to replace Ole.
Pundit Darren Ambrose then replied in shock: "What, the Liverpool legend, is going to come to manage Man United?"
Brett responded with: "Listen, money talks. The guy has absolutely got an identity in how he wants to play.
"He can motivate players. It's a no-brainer."
But host Alex Crook had the final say by explaining: "There are two points to this.

"One; I don't see any way in the world that Steven Gerrard, who bleeds Liverpool, would contemplate taking that job.
"Two; I don't know too many Manchester United fans that would welcome him to Old Trafford. I just can't see that one at all."
Gerrard played 707 games for Liverpool over 17 years and helped them to Champions League, UEFA Cup and FA Cup glory.
He did once go on trial at the Red Devils as a youngster and could've signed for the club.
"It was strange, really, because I had a lot of letters come in at the time to go and try different place. Everton, United, Palace, West Ham - to name a few," he told The Greatest Game podcast. per MEN.
"And I think my dad was maybe trying to push Liverpool in a roundabout way, looking back: 'What's going on here? Offer him [a contract], or what.'
"[Head of the youth academy] Steve Heighway said: 'Well look, if he wants to go and try those places, no problem.' I think Liverpool knew I was always going to stay there and Steve probably had lots of dads pushing him.
"But yeah, I just went and tried them because I wasn't signed up with any of them. I was on a one-year rolling contract at the time. I wanted to know what West Ham was like, I wanted to know what Everton and United was like compared to where I was. But I always knew I was going to stay at Liverpool long-term."
