Ole Gunnar Solskjaer told “go and get your coat” after Man Utd defeat by PSG

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer shouldn’t be doing anything other than ‘getting his coat’.

That’s according to former Crystal Palace chairman Simon Jordan, who doesn’t believe the Norwegian is the right person to take Manchester United forward.

Solskjaer was initially named United boss on a temporary basis, taking the reins from Jose Mourinho when he was sacked in 2018.

After impressing during his short stint in charge, Solskjaer was officially named the Red Devils’ boss, but Jordan doesn’t believe in the two years since he has improved United.

And Jordan believes it’s time United, who were beaten 3-1 by Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League on Wednesday night, found someone else.

Jordan told Jim White on talkSPORT: “I wouldn’t have employed him in the first place because I think he represents mediocraty.

“He is a thoroughly decent football person, but Manchester United don’t need a thoroughly decent football person, they need an excellent football person that is capable of taking them to the next level.

“You can ask the question as to who that may be and you can say that the potential of Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho, being two elite managers, didn’t work, fine.

Solskjaer has the back of Ed Woodward

“I question that because they won things, but of course the Manchester United fans at that time had a different view of what Manchester United should look like.

“We are now two years – not two minutes, not twenty games – two years into a tenure where he got a pass at the back end of last season, which has distorted the view of what Manchester United really are.

“They are a very average side with some very highly-priced footballers that aren’t performing at the level that Manchester United should be performing at.”

Solskjaer’s tenure has been up and down

When asked what Solskjaer should be doing, Jordan responded: “I don’t think he should be doing anything besides getting his coat.

“I have seen nothing, besides a few games at the back end of last season to tell me that this guy is going to catch [Jurgen] Klopp, this guy is going to catch [Pep] Guardiola, this guy is going to win anything meaningful besides maybe a league cup.”
