He has opined that it is not a “make or break” situation for Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
According to Sky Sports, football expert Charlie Nicholas has opined that the outcome of the Tottenham vs Manchester United match would not create a “make or break” situation for Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The Norweigan is yet to lose or draw a match so far since taking charge of his former club after the sacking of Jose Mourinho.
Nicholas said, “I generally do not think this is a make-or-break situation for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer because if both teams play well, Spurs should win this football match. And I think if he were to lose this, Solskjaer, I do not think it will be a problem for him.”
He added, “The thing that he has done instantly is he has got the support of the fans behind him and back on board – they were starting to dwindle at Old Trafford. The players will camouflage it, as they will tell you, ‘We could not wait to get rid of Jose Mourinho’, but they told us at the time that they were not really interested in what the manager’s situation was.”
Nicholas concluded, “So, they can disguise it. But the important thing is to get the balance right, so even if United lose this game and if you were to pick it at this moment in time, you would pick Spurs to beat this United side, but it is the fact that the fans now believe in Solskjaer. They are not a fine side, but you did expect them to kick on a little bit – and at least he has responded. So, so far for Ole, it has been great.”
