Man Utd Urged To Sack 'Clueless' Solskjaer

A former Chelsea star has urged Manchester United to sack Ole Gunner Solskjaer after their "disasterclass" in the UEFA Champions League this week.

The Red Devils started their group stage campaign with a 2-1 defeat to Young Boys this week, although they played with 10 men for an hour after Aaron Wan-Bissaka's sending-off.

Former Chelsea defender Jason Cundy did not mince his words about the Norwegian tactician after the match, and feels the Red Devils should replace him.

"That there shows he [Solskjaer] is utterly clueless," Cundy said on the Sports Bar.

"That performance, the team shape… they went down to 10 men, yes, but come on. They went to five at the back and he didn't change it.

"They were getting overrun in the middle of the park. Poor Fred, Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes. I've got so much sympathy for them, they had no help, they were getting passed around.

"The back five didn't move, they were getting outnumbered. It wasn't working, they should have gone for four in defence and four in midfield.

"United got exactly what they deserved and [Solskjaer] has been exposed again brutally.

"The game changed on the red card but that didn't mean it was over. Young Boys are normally whipping boys of European football and United get rolled over 2-1… it was a disasterclass, it was an absolute disaster.

"It exposed Ole, it did badly. I'd sack him. We know what's coming, don't we? You've got Antonio Conte out there…

"Who's the better manager? There will be a stage in the season where they'll be like 'I wish we did it earlier'."
