Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could end up getting sacked because according to former Crystal Palace chairman Simon Jordan. Jordan believes Solskjaer could end up being dismissed if puts too much faith in France international Anthony Martial.
“Man United fans are piling in on me, saying ‘you’ve got this agenda against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’,” Jordan said on talkSPORT. “It’s not an agenda, it’s calling out excellence and saying ‘can you really subscribe to the fact that anytime soon this guy, and this group of players…’ – because some of those players aren’t fit for purpose.
“Anthony Martial will get you sacked if you have him regularly in your side because he’s not good enough and he’s lightweight. You look at this and say ‘is he really going to bridge the gap in the cometh the hour, cometh the man moment against [Jurgen] Klopp and against [Pep] Guardiola?’
“He may well do it, he may well beat Klopp next week. I don’t think he will but I don’t take any satisfaction, I don’t sit there wanting this man out of a job. I don’t have an agenda, I’m just calling it as I see it. If you want to call it an agenda, that’s peoples perspectives.”
Martial has scored five goals across 20 appearances so far this season after managing 23 in 28 last time out.
