Paul Parker says sacking Solskjaer won’t help Manchester United

Former Manchester United star Paul Parker believes the Red Devils are better off sticking with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer rather than seeking a change in management. The Mancunian giants have made a slow beginning to the current campaign and they have registered just eight points from the opening six games of the league season.

As a result, there has already been a sense of frustration among the supporters with some of them urging the club to part ways with the Norwegian. Speaking to TalkSPORT, Parker said that it does not make sense to sack Solskjaer at the moment, considering things could get worse with the departure of the former United striker.

He told: “I just think it doesn’t make sense for Manchester United to sack a manager, whether you want to call it a sacking or leaving by mutual consent. I don’t think they can at the moment because they’ve got enough issues going on. I think they are in such a bad place at the moment it would throw more mud at the club if they were to get rid of Ole.”

Despite the indifferent start to the campaign, the Red Devils are just three points behind the top four and they can make ground with most of the season left. However, they need to find a solution to their attacking woes after managing just six goals from the past seven matches across all competitions. The Mancunian giants started the season with a bang with a 4-0 triumph over Chelsea at Old Trafford but they have since struggled to score more than one goal per game.

Manchester United are scheduled to face Arsenal during the forthcoming league clash and they certainly need to be at their best to come up with maximum points. The Gunners have the tendency to concede with the weakness at the back but they have often covered up the frailty with regular goalscoring contributions upfront.
