Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Is Fuming With Jamie Carragher For Comments On Manchester United Excuses

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer previously hit back at suggestions from Jamie Carragher that the Manchester United manager gets preferential treatment from his former teammates in the media.

In a recent podcast appearance, the former Liverpool defender suggested that Solskjaer got a pass from many pundits because he is their "mate".

The likes of Gary Neville, Rio Ferdinand, Paul Scholes and Roy Keane all went on to work in the media after retiring from the game - and were all teammates of the Norwegian at some point.

While appearing on the Tony Bellew is Angry podcast, Carragher said of his Sky colleagues: "It must be something to do with football... and it must be something to do with Neville."

"I did a newspaper column on it - I was with Gary Neville a few days before and we did this YouTube chat about the season with Roy Keane.

"The two of them just make excuses for Ole because they played with him and he's their mate.

"They were saying, 'they can't win the league, they still lack this, they still lack that, the Glazers aren't putting enough money in, they should be going for Harry Kane.'

"I'm sitting there thinking, 'you've just signed a player that's won the Champions League four times, you've just spent 75million on a winger.

"'You finished second last season, you didn't lose a game away from home all season', and I'm like... 'there's only one step to go!'"

According to the 43-year-old, such was his frustration with the excuses coming out of Old Trafford about the club's lack of success, that he wrote a column on it - which ended up offending the Red Devils boss.

"Honestly, it wound me up so much. I went, 'that is it. I'm doing my newspaper column on it," Carragher added.

"Ole wasn't too happy with the column, but I just said it's time the excuses stop at Manchester United, I'm sick of it.

"It's always, 'they still lack this, they lack that' - every player's on £50m! You go through the whole team, it's unbelievable!"
