'No Other Premier League Club Would Appoint Ole Gunnar Solskjaer As Manager'

Manchester United have been told that no other Premier League club would hire Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as their manager.

Solskjaer guided United to second in the league last season as well as the Europa League final, which they lost to Villarreal.

He's yet to win silverware with the Red Devils despite reaching four semi-finals and one final.

The 48-year-old signed a new three-year deal on Saturday, just hours before a 4-2 defeat to QPR in pre-season.

TalkSPORT's Alex Crook thinks Solskjaer needs to be doing more at Old Trafford in the coming season.

He explained: "If Ole Gunnar Solskjaer became available, how many of those clubs would even consider him as their new manager?

"I don't think any would consider him as their new manager."

Crook goes on to claim Solskjaer has been 'found out' tactically when it comes to winning in the big games.

Last season's loss to Villarreal came as a shock considering United were heavy favourites to win the Europa League.

He continued: "From what I'm told he can lose his rag with the players. You don't achieve what he did as a player without having that winning mentality. I don't think niceness is the problem.

"Tactically he's been found out. He was found out in that Europa League final. He was found out in the Europa League semi-final the previous season.

"He was found out by Leicester in the FA Cup when he picked the completely wrong team and ended up going out of that competition.

"Every time they've got in a position to challenge for silverware, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has come up short.

"It's not because he's too nice, it's because he's not a good enough manager."

The United board have backed Solskjaer in this summer's transfer window by finally landing Jadon Sancho.

Sancho was confirmed a United player on Friday afternoon after arriving from Borussia Dortmund in a deal worth £73 million.

Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane is on their radar as is Atletico Madrid full-back Kieran Trippier.

Solskjaer is aware United need more quality additions if they're to have any hope of challenging Manchester City.

Bitter rivals City finished 12 points ahead of United at the top of the league last season.

Do you think Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wouldn't get another job in the Premier League?
