Former Manchester United winger Lee Sharpe is not pleased with the performance of his old club under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the past few weeks and has insisted that the manager is out of depth.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been faced with an uphill task of returning Manchester United to Alex Ferguson era at the club but he has had his fair share of ups and downs since replacing Jose Mourinho at the helm at Old Trafford in December 2018.
His team looked like one that will be competing for the Premier League title this season but things have changed dramatically in the past few weeks.
A recent run of poor form has left Manchester United languishing 14 points behind leaders Manchester City, who they face on Sunday.
Sharpe while speaking exclusively to Ladbrokes at its launch of the 5-A-Side Bet on the Manchester Derby, stated that he has never really thought Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was the right man for the Manchester United job.
He noted that though Solskjaer has done a good job, as the board have backed him by giving him money to spend, he has never been his first choice, purely because of that lack of experience.
Sharpe added that if you’re one of the biggest companies in the world outside of football, you’re not going to employ someone for such a big role the way United have done with Ole.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be eager to prove a point when his side faces Manchester City in there next Premier League tie.
