Carragher: You Cannot Be Learning On The Job At Man United

Football expert and columnist Jamie Charragher has pointed out that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is not fit enough to manage a club of Manchester United caliber.

Commenting on the latest Man United’s 5-0 embarrassing defeat to arch rivals Liverpool on Sunday, the former Reds defender is convinced Ole Gunnar has no capacity to match with the likes of Manchester City’s Pep Guardiola, Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp and Thomas Tuchel of Chelsea in the title race.

Manchester are 8 massive points adrift leaders Chelsea, placed 7th on the log with uphill tasks still ahead in November, the Red Devils are starring at a serious crisis should their current form persist.

Carragher has questioned the experience of Solskjaer in his capacity at the club even as he admits the Norwegian has done commendable nob so far since his formal appointment as head coach.

The retired English defender says Manchester United does not need someone who is learning on the job, but instead a manager who will come in and challenge for top titles.

“Manchester United need a better manager. Ole is not a manager for Manchester United. He’s done really well but you need someone to take them to the next level. Unfortunately, Solskjaer is not Jurgen Klopp, Pep Guardiola or Thomas Tuchel. It’s staring you in the face,” Carragher is quoted by Sky Sport.

He added that having a manger like Solskjaer needs an experienced technical bench as well for back up, not like the case at Old Trafford.


“Manchester United should have the best in class – the best managers and coaches in the world. If you have Ole as the manager you should have someone like Carlos Queiroz as the assistant coach. You cannot have people learning on the job who have never been at the club of that size. They have got Mike Phelan but I do not think he’s a coach, there’s Michael Carrick and Kieren McKenna, they have never coached anyone in their lives.

“You have got to have someone who has been there and done it. You cannot be learning on the job at Manchester United.”

Meanwhile, reports reveal former Inter Milan Manager Antonio Conte is closely monitored and could replace the under pressure Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at misfiring Manchester United.
