Louis Saha urges Manchester United to keep faith in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Speaking to Teamtalk (h/t The Express), former Manchester United star Louis Saha has urged the club to keep faith in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The Norwegian is under fire after a poor start to the season. United have won just one of their three Premier League games and are 16th in the table.

“We are rushing to make a judgement on Ole and that is wrong after three games of the season.”

This has led to speculation that Mauricio Pochettino and Massilimano Allegri are being lined up to replace him. The Red Devils are all set to face Newcastle United with all eyes on Solskjaer.

Solskjaer led us to a third-placed finish while also making the semifinals of all three cup competitions last season. That was in stark contrast to what we have experienced so far this time around.

The United side has looked largely rudderless in the losses to Crystal Palace and Tottenham Hotspur. The win against Brighton too came despite the Seahawks outplaying us for large parts of the game.

Saha believes United should not act in haste. Solskjaer has steadied the ship since taking over from Jose Mourinho and even got us playing positive football.

“I think we should not forget the really visible improvements we have seen from United in the last year.”

The Frenchman went on to add that his opinion should not be considered biased. The duo were teammates at the club under legendary boss Sir Alex Ferguson

Saha also brought up our comeback win over PSG in the Champions League round of 16 in 2019. The Red Devils came back from two goals down in the first leg to win the tie on away goals.

While the result was one to savour, the French champions did outplay us on the night. United, to their credit, took their chances and came away with the win.

Solskjaer should be judged on the same parameters as any other manager. It would appear that his time as a United player sways opinion in his favour even when criticism is warranted.

The Norwegian is a decent manager but the jury is out on whether he is the man who can take us back to the top.
