Peter Crouch pinpoints one of Solskjaer’s biggest problems as Man Utd manager

Crouch on Solskjaer

Peter Crouch believes that Manchester United head coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is more susceptible to criticism due to his lack of top experience.

The Red devils team pulled off a remarkable second-half comeback to beat Atalanta 3-2 in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday.

After finding themselves 2-0 down at the break, goals from Marcus Rashford, Harry Maguire & Cristiano Ronaldo turned the game around, easing the pressure on the Norwegian boss after a miserable run of four defeats in seven matches.

Speaking after the turnaround, former Premier League player Crouch believes that Solskjaer will always be the scapegoat when the club don’t play well.

‘Ole’s issue is Thomas Tuchel, [Pep] Guardiola and [Jurgen] Klopp. Manchester United’s fans are looking at those three managers, the trophies they’ve won, their CV’S of winning trophies and Champions Leagues,’ he told BT Sport.

‘With all due respect to Ole, he’s come from Cardiff and Molde, not the same experience and he’s managing a club of Man Utd’s stature and the club doesn’t have a manager that falls into the category that those clubs have.

‘When they lose or look tactically inept, it always full back into the scenario of how he got the job in the first place and then looking enviably at the rest of the teams who are the best three teams in the league.

‘United do have a squad that can compete with these teams, but they’re not and what is the reason for that? And that is the reason we keep going back to the manager.’

United will be looking to continue their momentum when they play second-placed Liverpool in the Premier League on Sunday.
