Solksjaer has ‘done a good job’ and ‘done exactly what he’s been asked’

The calls for Manchester United to change manager have reached a new high since Saturday’s derby defeat, but Kleberson reckons Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has “done a good job”.

United were easily swatted aside by City at Old Trafford, and following on from a 5-0 defeat to Liverpool last month, most supporters are increasingly of the belief that Solskjaer has taken the club as far as he can.

The Norwegian does retain the support of at least one person, though: his former team-mate Kleberson.

“People have been asking questions about Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s future for a long time, but in my opinion, he’s done a good job, and has done exactly what he’s been asked to do,” Kleberson incredibly told Paddy Power. “It’s a difficult task to manage this club and get the best out of the team every week.  

“When Manchester United are playing well, it’s because the entire team are performing highly and demonstrating their quality. Obviously, the players are a big part in that, but the manager is too. Manchester United have changed formations, a call that Ole had to make.  

“He selects the team; he chose to play three at the back against Tottenham. They looked more aggressive off the ball, played well on the counterattack and applied pressure in the Tottenham game. Against Manchester City, that didn’t work, players were below par, and City dominated.  

“The Manchester City game was extremely tough, they didn’t have much of the ball, but when they had the ball, the quality wasn’t there. 

“Despite losing to City, it doesn’t mean Ole needs sacking. He has worked hard to improve this team. They have quality players and are great on the ball. Off the ball is where they can improve. If they do that, they’ll start winning and life will be easier for the club and fans.”
