Why Man United are spot on in not appointing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer right now – Gary Neville


Fulham 0 – Man United 3

It was a superb weekend for Man United in the Premier League as they won 3-0 at Fulham on Saturday lunchtime.

Paul Pogba was the star of the show for United at Craven Cottage.

The French World Cup winner scored a second half penalty to wrap up the three points.

In the first half, Pogba flashed a cracking strike past Sergio Rico into the Fulham near post to open.

Anthony Martial scored an excellent solo goal to hand United a 2-0 lead at the break.

Should Ole Gunnar Solskjaer be the next full-time Man United manager?

The case is growing for Man United to reward the Norwegian with a long term deal.

Since taking over from Jose Mourinho, OGS is yet to lose. His record reads won 10, drawn once.

Of course, the tougher games for Man United are now on the horizon.

This week United take on PSG in the Champions League, while matches against Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester City are coming up.

Speaking on the Gary Neville podcast for Sky Sports, the former Man United right-back argued that the club are spot on in waiting to appoint Solskjaer.

Saying that, Neville admits that Solskjaer is making it increasingly difficult for United to look elsewhere.

Neville made the following comments on why Man United should take their time over Solskjaer:

My personal view is still, wait until March.

I don’t think there’s any real reason to rush it and make that announcement today.

And that’s not because Manchester United have got seven or eight tough games in this next month.

I just think it’s sensible to reflect over a three-, four-month period.

But Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is putting himself in with a major shout of getting the job.

I’m looking at it from an owner’s point of view and thinking ‘if Manchester United continue in the vein they are towards the end of the season, playing the way they are, get into the top four…

The risk of not giving Ole Gunnar Solskjaer the job is huge.

If, next October, they’ve spent £30-40million to get a manager and a new manager and a new coaching set-up into the club, and they’re in fifth, all hell will break loose.
