Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has not had the best of times since taking over the reigns of the Red Devils and was at the receiving end once again as his side were outplayed by rivals, Manchester City 3-1 in the first leg of the Carabao Cup semi-final on Tuesday.
Such has been the dominance of City over United in the past decade that the Cityzens fans couldn’t help but take a dig at the Norwegian during the game as they could be heard singing, “Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, we want you to stay” especially in the first-half which was littered with errors by United.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is just not good enough to be manager of Manchester United…simple as that, never was and never will be!

Despite such mocking chants by the opposition fans, Solskjaer was bullish after the game believing that his side can still turn the tie around in the second leg, pointing to their incredible comeback against Paris Saint-Germain last season, which came under similar circumstances.
“We’ve shown before we have been down from a home tie and turned it around. PSG is the latest example and we have to believe that we can put on a performance. Even though it’s a steep mountain to climb, we can still climb it,” he said in his post match press conference.
United have been wildly inconsistent this season, but still find themselves placed fifth in the Premier League table with 31 points from 21 games, five behind fourth placed, Chelsea in the race for the Champions League qualification.
