And since that loss to Liverpool in which Paul Pogba even received a red card, some top managers have been linked with a decision to replace Solskjaer at Manchester United.
Why was Sir Alex Ferguson at Carrington?
During his active playing time, Ole Solskjaer played under Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United and the Scotsman has expressed his support for the Norwegian since he was appointed coach.
Steve Nicol’s reaction
“If I am Ole, I would be disgusted. I absolutely hate the fact that Ferguson is in Carrington. It’s horrible, it looks really bad on the manager.
“It’s almost as if the teacher comes to remind a student what to do. It’s bad timing. If Fergie wants to go to Carrington, why not go after winning three or four at the trot.
