Manchester United coach, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has to be selfish and try to sign experienced players in January, according to Gary Neville.
Man United are 9th in the EPL table after a feisty 3-3 draw away at Sheffield United, which leaves them 9 points behind the top four.
Speaking on their form recently, Neville believes Ole has to bring in more experienced players to help the young ones, if he wants to save his job.
His words, “Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has to go and spend the club’s money in January, for himself,”
“He has to go and spend the club’s money on two or three experienced players, he must demand it.
“He’s not going to be there to see the fruits of the labour that he’s putting in, the foundations he’s laying, because there’s a lot of good young players out on that pitch, that I actually enjoy watching.”
“Ole’s going to have to be selfish, he’s going to have that ruthless streak that a [Jose] Mourinho has, or [Antonio] Conte has, and spend the club’s money to protect himself.
“Put two or three experienced players in amongst that group and they could come alive, who knows what they could become for the club. But they need good, experienced, top quality players in around them, because they don’t know the game at all yet, especially away from home.”
“Personally, two and a half years ago when Louis van Gaal got sacked by Manchester United, I said Mauricio Pochettino should have been appointed before Jose Mourinho, so I can’t sit here now and say he won’t be the right person for the football club.
“But Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was appointed eight months ago, the club have taken a different track.”
