2 Reasons Why Sir Alex Ferguson Still Backs Ole Gunnar Solskjær Despite Poor Results Recently

Manchester United are currently in a bad shape, they have failed to record a win in their last four Premier League games and Ole Gunnar Solskjær has been held responsible for his team's poor results in recent matches. Despite their poor performance in recent matches, Manchester United legend Sir Alex Ferguson still backs Ole Gunnar Solskjær. An official twitter post verifying this claim can be seen below.

Manchester United board shouldn't make a decision that they might end up regretting years later. Here are some of the reasons why Sir Alex Ferguson still backs Ole Gunnar Solskjær despite poor results recently.

1. All Top Once Managers Had poor Runs During Their Career

Sir Alex Ferguson was the greatest manager Manchester United have had, they haven't found one like him since he retired. He's one of the greatest managers in football's history and he also gave rise to one of the greatest individual in world football. Sir Alex Ferguson was never perfect at Manchester United, he didn't win trophies in his first seasons with the club. When the time came, he won back to back league titles and won a treble. Sir Alex Ferguson has been down Ole Gunnar Solskjær's road but he never gave up, he kept pushing and got bettering results.

Ole Gunnar Solskjær will have to link up with his players perfectly, all top managers have that players-manager connection and it builds the team. There's a lot of disrespect and envy between this Manchester United squad, Ole Gunnar has been found guilty of these bad qualities as well. Ole Gunnar Solskjær has managed two season at Manchester United without winning a trophy, the closest he was to winning one was last season but he let it slip away.

It's just a poor run, they'll eventually get back into shape in the next weeks or so. Manchester United fans shouldn't rush things, replacing Gunnar Solskjær shouldn't be the only option. Give him time, he never failed as a player but will he fail as a manager?

2. Losing Heavily To An In-form Team Doesn't Dictate How The Season Ends

Manchester United's loss to Liverpool was as a result of lack of focus. They were more focused in attack than they were in defense, Manchester United conceded five goals before Paul Pogba was sent off. They never conceded another after being down to ten men as they were more focused on their defense. Liverpool could be the best team in Europe right now, they are in their best form, Manchester United were no match for Jurgen Klopp side.

It's just a tough time for both players and managers, they need time to get their head straight and get things moving once again. Manchester United are still title contenders despite their current form, they'll get back into winning ways and challenge the top teams for the league title. It's now or never for Ole Gunnar Solskjær if he still likes his current position at Manchester United. Ole Gunnar Solskjær is not the problem at Manchester United, it's the players who haven't been doing as instructed.
