'Solskjaer Will Never Be Klopp, Pep Or Tuchel'

Former Liverpool star Jamie Carragher says Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will never be in the same league as Jurgen Klopp, Thomas Tuchel and Pep Guardiola.

The pressure on Solskjaer continues to rise after the Red Devils suffered a humiliating 5-0 loss to fierce rivals Liverpool at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Carragher feels United need to change their manager if they want to compete with Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea going forward.

"On Monday, I wasn't actually trying to be critical of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. I actually think he's done a really good job to this point," he told Sky Sports.

"But right at this point now, to take on Klopp, Guardiola and Tuchel, Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea, they need a better manager.

"I don't want to get involved in a slanging match, I know Ole said something back and rightly so, he should back his own corner, but this thing about asking for managers to be sacked, I'm not comfortable saying that when it's 'sacked', someone should go.

"But when we talk about Manchester United as a team, we're comfortable saying Fred's not good enough, McTominay's not good enough and they need a new midfield player, so I don't feel too bad in terms of saying United need a better manager.

"Solskjaer is not a manager for United when you want to go to the next level. Now it's the big boys.

"And Solskjaer will never be Jurgen Klopp, Pep Guardiola or Thomas Tuchel."
