Manchester United have been savaged by Chris Sutton after Norwich sacked Daniel Farke while Ole Gunnar Solskjaer remains in his job despite their shocking form.
Norwich have proved they are more ambitious than Manchester United by sacking under-performing Daniel Farke.
That is the verdict from Chris Sutton, who pulled no punches when describing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s situation.
The Red Devils coach has come under huge pressure in recent weeks after a series of disastrous results.
United have taken just four points from their last 18 available – something that Norwich would be more used to.

In fact, the Canaries have actually had a better record over the last six Premier League matches.
Two draws and a win mean they have garnered five points – a stretch of form that convinced the Carrow Road hierarchy to dismiss Farke.
Yet Solskjaer still clings to his job – despite that run also including hefty defeats to big rivals Liverpool and Manchester City.
And former Norwich star Sutton believes his old club have shown more ambition than United by ridding themselves of their manager.
“Norwich are more ambitious than Manchester United because at least they’ve been decisive,” Sutton told BBC Radio Five Live.
“Their expectation is to stay in the Premier League but they have made a change, rightly or wrongly.
“But Manchester United – what is the expectation, are they going to win something with the current manager and this squad? No, everyone can see that.
“Manchester United are still living off the history of when they were a good team and that’s the issue and there are no excuses, there is nowhere to hide this season.

“I like Ole, he’s a nice bloke but he’s being outcoached and out-thought by the top guys.”
Solskjaer is under massive pressure at United but whether they decide to sack the Norwegian remains to be seen.
Potential options to replace the ex-Cardiff coach include Brendan Rodgers, Ralf Rangnick and Mauricio Pochettino.
