Ole Gunnar Solskjaer ‘knows’ he will be sacked by Manchester United because of transfers says ex-Liverpool and Wales striker Dean Saunders.
The Norwegian is set to lead United into his first full season in charge.
Solskjaer initially oversaw a meteoric rise in fortunes at the club after taking over from Jose Mourinho back in December.
However, things have turned sour since he was given the job on a permanent basis with a run of only two wins out of 12 seeing them miss out on next season’s Champions League.
The Red Devils have made two signings so far in the summer transfer window.
However, Saunders seems to think that Solskjaer needs a complete overhaul of the squad at his disposal or else these players will get him sacked as they did to Mourinho.
“I don’t think he will.” Saunders said on talkSPORT when asked if Solskjaer will last the full season at Old Trafford.
“I just think he’s walked into a mess and he’s got such a difficult job.
“These players, with one or two exceptions, have got three managers the sack.
“These players have just got Mourinho the sack and if Solskjaer doesn’t get his own players on the pitch they’ll get him the sack, and he knows that.
“He knows if he keeps on with these players and doesn’t change the personnel, he’ll get sacked.
“I think he needs some help, you’ve got to write some cheques and get the job done, get the people you want out the building out as quick as possible.”
