David Beckham shows his support for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer
David Beckham has come out in support of Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, claiming that he is doing an incredible job (h/t Mirror). Solskjaer has come under scrutiny after Manchester United’s elimination from the FA Cup at the hands of Leicester City.
Now with only the Europa League to go, Manchester United have only one shot left at silverware this season. They were eliminated by Man City in the League Cup at the semi-final stage earlier. Add to that, we have ceded top spot to City in the league and are 14 points behind with a game in hand.
Former English player Danny Murphy even went on to say that Solskjaer could be looking at a sack if he cannot win the Europa League. However, Solskjaer’s former Manchester United teammate offered some words of support to the Norwegian.
“You know, I’ve seen some of the criticism. But I suppose when you are a manager at Manchester United and when Manchester United have had the success over the years that they’ve had, there was always going to be a point where people get criticised – whether it’s players, whether it’s owners, whether it’s the manager.
“Ole’s been in the game for long enough to be able to take any kind of criticism. He’s very quiet, he gets on with his job, and I think he’s done an incredible job down at United. The results are starting to show that, so hopefully that continues because the fans love Ole, we all love Ole and we all want him to do well.”
