Solskjaer receives condition to continue as Man Utd manager

Former Liverpool midfielder, Jamie Redknapp, has given Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, a condition for him to continue as the Red Devils head coach.

Redknapp said if Man United lose against Tottenham Hotspur in Saturday’s Premier League tie and then lose a couple more games, he is sorry, Solskjaer cannot stay at Old Trafford.

Man United’s next three games are against Tottenham, Atalanta and Manchester City.

Solskjaer is under more pressure to turn things around for Man United following their embarrassing 5-0 loss to Liverpool at home last weekend as Antonio Conte, Zinedine Zidane, Brendan Rodgers and Ajax’s Erik ten Hag are among the names that have been linked with the managerial job at Old Trafford.

Writing in his column on Sky Sports, Redknapp said: “I have been in dressing rooms before when things aren’t working for the manager and that is what it looks like to me.

“It looks like that dressing room, in the kindest way, it feels like it would be a bit of a holiday camp. I can’t imagine Solskjaer is going in there pointing his finger, telling players what they have got to do.

“Everything just seems too nice. Players are getting away with things and that’s a recipe for disaster in football.

“They have bought themselves a bit of time, but if they lose against Tottenham and then lose a couple more games, I’m sorry, but he can’t stay [at the club].

“It’s difficult because it’s Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, of course, he’s a well-respected figure at the club. I said two years ago, it is going to be like shooting Bambi. But you have to sometimes look at what’s best for the team. Even he will look at it and go, ‘I can’t keep my job under these circumstances’.”
