Andy Cole has backed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to keep his job at Manchester United despite the club’s poor form this season.
The Norwegian is currently under pressure at Old Trafford as the Red Devils are sitting in 14ninth place in the Premier League table. Moreover, there have been talks over the manager’s possible sack, with Mauricio Pochettino being one of the main contenders for the United manager’s role.
However, Cole thinks Solskjaer is the right man to be in charge of the club despite the latest speculations.
“I enjoyed playing with Ole. Ole is a very, very nice guy,” former Red Devils man told Express Sport.
“You don’t want to see anyone given a lot of stick. Since he has gone in he has turned things around.
“We haven’t been lucky enough to win any silverware at the moment.
“This season we haven’t started the way we would have liked but take nothing away from Ole.
“Ultimately, at the back end of last season nobody thought they would finish in the top four.
“That’s down to the manager galvanizing the players to do just that.”
