Gary Neville's Post PSG Interview With Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Hasn't Aged Well

Gary Neville's Post PSG Interview With Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Hasn't Aged Well

"How long would you like one your contract? What would your salary like to be? And where would you like the statue?"

Gary Neville's three quick questions to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer look more and more misplaced as time goes on with Manchester United's loss to Newcastle United on Sunday extending their run of away games without winning since the Champions League night against PSG way back in March.

At that point Solskjaer was still on the crest of a wave and hadn't tasted defeat domestically in 15 games, with his only loss coming in the home leg against the French side.

That loss at Old Trafford shone a light on the fact that United still weren't quite back to their best in a 2-0 loss and they would have to do what had never been done before, in overturning a two goal home deficit from a home leg.

That it took till a controversial penalty in the dying moments in Paris didn't matter to anyone, the excitement abounded that the Norwegian was the man to take the reigns at United and lead them back to former glory.

Neville wasn't the only one calling for Solskjaer to be appointed United boss after the PSG game and just 22 days later the former Cardiff manager signed a three year deal, but that point the Red Devils had already lost two more games, including going out of the FA Cup.

Since that day it's not been plain sailing at all for the Premier League side and they haven't won from home since and have won just five games in all competitions, including a 1-0 win against Astana in the Europa League.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Claims Manchester United Were 'Set Up To Fail' In Extraordinary Post-Match Interview

Sunday may have been the lowest point, amongst many, for United since the end of the 2012/13 season when Sir Alex Ferguson retired.

The loss to Newcastle, who had only won one game up until the weekend, left Solskjaer's side just two points above the relegation zone and with their next win looking anything but likely when they play Liverpool after the international break.

They say a week is a long time in football and for United, Neville and Solskjaer March seems like another lifetime ago.
