Jamie O’Hara has urged Manchester United to cut ties with boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer like Chelsea did with Frank Lampard as he feels the Norwegian is not a good enough manager to lead the Red Devils to trophies.
The Red Devils fell to a third loss in four games across all competitions at the weekend as visitors Aston Villa left Old Trafford with a 1-0 win in the Premier League.
After starting the season well, Manchester United have hit a rough patch of form and it is a topic of discussion among the fans whether Solskjaer is the right man to lead the club to a trophy.
Ex-top flight star O’Hara has weighed in with his opinion and revealed he does not see Manchester United winning any trophies under Solskjaer as he is not a good enough manager, despite having a squad filled with world class talents in the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Edinson Cavani, Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba.
O’Hara has urged Manchester United to be ruthless and cut ties with Solskjaer to bring in someone better, just as Chelsea sacked Lampard and replaced him with Thomas Tuchel, under whom they have already won the Champions League.
“Disappointing from Manchester United, it was another bad performance from them [against Aston Villa], O’Hara told talkSPORT while discussing whether Solskjaer is the right man to lead them.
“It just shows how wrong they are getting this, Manchester United with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
“They keep sticking by him and are just not ruthless enough.
“They have got the squad, look at their squad, Fernandes, Cavani, Pogba, Ronaldo.
“You look at the squad and go this team have to be challenging for the title but they are not going to challenge for it because they cannot win at home.
“With the players that they have got [they should be challenging for trophies] but the manager is just not good enough.
“Cut ties [with Solskjaer] like Chelsea did with Lampard, be ruthless and go and win something because they are not going to do it.”
Manchester United will be determined to get back into the win column on Wednesday when they host Villarreal in a Champions League clash.
The Spanish outfit sprang a major upset last season when they lifted the Europa League trophy by beating Manchester United on penalties.
