Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is ‘a mid-table manager – at best – managing a group of elite players’, says talkSPORT host Darren Gough.
Red Devils legend Solskjaer has lifted morale at the club since taking charge in December 2018 and has seen a number of world-class players arrive in his time there – most recently Cristiano Ronaldo.
The team has improved, too, and are tipped as major contenders to win the Premier League title this season.
“It’s quite obvious, without being horrible, is that he’s a mid-table manager – at best – managing a group of elite players.
“Now and again elite players will get you out of trouble… they will get you and win you games on their own.
“But when it comes down to it in big games and Champions League is an area where he’s getting caught out a lot tactically. He hasn’t got the tactical brain of other managers who’ve been there and done it. This is where he’s falling short time and time again.”
“Let’s be honest, he has won the lottery, hasn’t he? He’s a mid-table manager who has got an opportunity to put his name in lights by managing Manchester United.
“He can put his name up in lights. But really, if he got sacked tomorrow, would another top eight club in the world go after Solskjaer? No.”
