Manchester United legend Gary Neville has urged his ex-club to stick by Ole Gunnar Solksjaer after a string of results have not gone in his favour.
Speaking on his segment on Sky Sports News, Neville said:
“This idea that Man United only lost the league a few years ago is gone – they’re in the wilderness,
“Seven years and where do you see the next league title coming from? Yeah things can be turned around quickly but good decisions, big decisions have to be made quickly.
“Ole Gunnar Solskjaer alluded in his press conference on Friday that he needed to rebuild this team and rebuild this squad and obviously that’s a fact. But he also said he needed a few transfer windows.
“Real Madrid are rebuilding, Bayern Munich are rebuilding, Arsenal are rebuilding, [Manchester] City will get players, Liverpool will go and get players, Barcelona need some players.
“Manchester United are in a world where they need to compete with those teams to get the best players into the club.
“Who is rebuilding this squad for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, for the Manchester United fans? I’ve asked this question since Christmas, I’ve asked it since the start of the season.
“I don’t believe in this moment in time there is anybody there to be able to rebuild that club from a football point of view in the way that it needs to be built.
“I might be proved wrong, I might be completely out or order saying it. But at this moment in time the evidence is there that something is fundamentally wrong.
“Yes there was an amazing three months when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over. When he first took over I didn’t expect he would get the job.
“He deserves the job, now he needs to be trusted and believed in.
“I never wanted David Moyes to be sacked, I never wanted Louis van Gaal to be sacked, and I never wanted Jose Mourinho to be sacked.
“I never fundamentally believed that it was a managerial problem.
“I certainly don’t want Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to fall by the wayside because I love him to bits and the Manchester United fans love him to bits.
“So to protect him and get him successful, which is what we need to get the club back where it needs to be, that means he’s going to have to be supported incredibly by good recruitment, good support on the football side and making sure that United can get back there.
“That’s a massive, massive job and he won’t be able to do that on his own.”
