Former Manchester United defender Gary Neville has identified two major issues for club manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this season.
According to Neville, the two key issues for Solskjaer at Old Trafford are that the Norwegian needs to hand over a trophy with Cristiano Ronaldo now in his squad and the Red Devils need to improve their performance in the future.
The former defender said this ahead of Man United’s Premier League clash with Leicester City on Saturday.
“If Ole had been the manager in the post-Sir Alex Ferguson wake, he would have already left,” Neville told Sky Sports.
“But because of these bad experiences United have had in getting rid of managers after a year, two years, eight months, they’re going to live with him and believe in the project longer and I think that’s probably the right way to go. go through because they had bad experiences changing managers.
“Sometimes it costs more to change. “
Neville added: “What I think now, three years later is his third full season… the performance needs to improve,” he added.
“So the problems Ole has right now is Ronaldo coming in, that means it’s successful or not.
“You have to win with Ronaldo, you have to win a trophy. He doesn’t come here so as not to win a trophy and be second, third and fourth.
“Second, the performance is poor. You [Paul Scholes] said the last two games… I don’t think they’ve even played well enough in a lot of the games they’ve won.
