Following the ‘disaster’ of Sunday’s thumping at the hands of Liverpool, Mark Bosnich claims Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has three games to save his job at Manchester United. After a 5-0 loss to their fiercest rivals at Old Trafford, Solskjaer is under a lot of pressure.
United’s defeat pushed Solskjaer to his ‘rock bottom,’ but he feels he is the ideal man to keep the job.
However, Bosnich, who played with Solskjaer at United from 1999 to 2001, believes the Norwegian is on borrowed time if he is unable to turn the team around.
‘It was a complete disaster.’
There is no other word for it,’ Bosnich told Sky Sports News
. ‘It was devastating. There was a time during the first half that it was ugly but I thought it was going to get to six, seven or eight.
‘It is a very dark day, there is no doubt about it. He is an ex-team-mate and I want him to do well, but I don’t think he had any other choice than to say that (he is still the right man). ‘If this continues there is no other choice for the board – we don’t know whether Manchester United have already approached people about the possibility of taking over.
‘There are three tough games coming up – Tottenham away, Atalanta and then Manchester City before the international break.
‘If they lose those three games, which right now is a massive possibility, I don’t really see there being any other choice.’Bosnich, who won the Premier League under Sir Alex Ferguson in 2000, also suggested the current squad may no longer be behind Solskjaer.
‘The bottom line is, you can talk about tactics and identity, but if the players aren’t executing it, not doing the basic things and look as though they didn’t want to play for the manager, all of the other things you can rule out,’ he added.
‘The question has to be asked: “what is going on?”‘There seems to be deeper problems than having an identity and a way of playing, it seems at the moment the players are looking for a way out.
