Manchester United fans are making Ole Gunnar Solskjaer U-turn after Leicester City draw

Several Manchester United fans are admitting that sacking Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wasn’t the best decision after yet another disappointing game against Leicester City.

Man United parted ways with Solskjaer in November after the Norwegian failed to arrest United’s poor run of form.

The Red Devils signed Jadon Sancho, Raphael Varane and Cristiano Ronaldo in a bid to advance Solskjaer’s chances of finally getting his hands on at least a trophy, given how close he came last season, but the resultant was rather surprising to say the least — getting sacked.

Ralf Rangnick was appointed to steady the ship at Old Trafford but so far, there isn’t much to say about the improvement under the German boss.

Which has left many fans to concede that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wasn’t really the entire problem at Manchester United, with one suggesting the Norwegian could have found a way to steady the ship had he gotten more time.

United are on the brink of missing out on a top-four finish this season, following Saturday’s 1-1 draw against Leicester City and a few fans have made some Solskjaer’s claims.

@timlomgsports tweeted: “Come at me all you want, but I legitimately think #MUFC are better off right now if Solskjaer, Carrick, & McKenna are still there. They were 6 points behind 4th placed West Ham. 3 behind Arsenal. They’d have figured out the Ronaldo conundrum. Everything good they built has gone.”

@MSSG_11 tweeted: “Maybe Ole was the brilliant individual…”

In his replies, there were loads of fans admitting Solskjaer wasn’t an issue though some replies suggested otherwise.

@CraigCharles tweeted: “I’ve said this all along. At least give the whole season to correct it. We changed management and have just gone backwards more and written off the season then.”

@EvinPaulDaniel added: “He found a way to motivate these players. It’s extremely unfair to judge Ole when you give him a signing 3 games into the PL season when every other team have already got their plans for the season done including us & then ask him to figure out a new plan during the season.”

Manchester United have held interviews with different managers over becoming their next permanent manager.

Erik ten Hag and Mauricio Pochettino are leading the race but the former has been touted as the clear favourite.
