Solskjaer gets sack warning after Man Utd’s Champions League defeat to Young Boys


Manchester United legend, Paul Scholes, has warned manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer over being sacked if he does not win a trophy for the club this season.


Scholes gave the warning following Man United’s Champions League 2-1 defeat to Young Boys on Tuesday night.


The former midfield maestro believes Man United must land a trophy this season after re-signing Cristiano Ronaldo this summer from Juventus, adding ‘Solskjaer has to win something’ this term.


Recall that Man United suffered an embarrassing defeat to Young Boys in their Champions League opener despite the likes of Ronaldo, Bruno Fernandes, Paul Pogba and Jadon Sancho all starting against Young Boys.


“That’s what you expect from Man United [to sign the best players], it’s been a quiet time over the last few years,” Scholes told BT Sport.


“Ole has now built a squad that is capable of winning the big prizes and that’s what he has been brought to do.


“The only difference is the quality of the managers, Man City, Chelsea, Liverpool have proven winners.


“You’ve got Ole, who has done a fantastic job building this squad, now is the time with that squad of players. He has to win something.”
