Martin Keown: Manchester United players have responded to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

by Marwan Harraz

BBC pundit Martin Keown believes Ole Gunnar Solskjaer deserves the Manchester United job permanently because the players have responded to him.

The Norwegian oversaw his side grab a convincing 2-0 victory over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in the FA Cup.

United had a notoriously poor record away to the Blues having not won the fixture in all competitions since 2012 but under Solskjaer they pulled off a fantastic win.

Paul Pogba was the star of the show, grabbing a goal and an assist leaving Keown to state the former Molde man already deserves the job.

Some sections of supporters believe patience is the answer and the decision on Ole should be made towards the end of the season.

The United board mustn’t be hasty with their decision despite how fantastically well Solskjaer has done so far.

The truth is that he’s deserving of the permanent position but given how they opted to sack Jose Mourinho halfway through the season in order to give them time to think about their next appointment, they should fully exploit all the time they have.

Ole’s United are back on track after losing to PSG in the Champions League and if they keep going, why shouldn’t he be given the chance to lead his former side out permanently?
