Ranking every Man Utd boss under the Glazers by PPG: Solskjaer third

Quick Reads

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s status as a Manchester United legend hasn’t been enough to appease some of their fans after a difficult start to the season. 

Solskjaer replaced Jose Mourinho United manager in December 2018 but is yet to win a single trophy while in the Old Trafford dugout.

Despite signing Raphael Varane, Jadon Sancho and Cristiano Ronaldo, they’ve already lost four games in all competitions in 2021-22 and fans are venting their frustrations.

According to reports, his position as manager is 100% secure as things stand but the Glazer family may need to act if he doesn’t turn things around.
