Former Manchester United player Lee Sharpe feels that speculation surrounding his future is only making things harder for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has apparently been getting fired since the day he was appointed interim manager of Manchester United.

Since his permanent appointment, the speculation surrounding his future has only intensified.

Now the team is struggling to get results on the field. United faces the prospect of missing out on Champions League football for a second successive year.

The speculation has only intensified. Mauricio Pochettino, Massimiliano Allegri, even the likes of Laurent Blanc. The list is endless of potential candidates.

But former United player Lee Sharpe feels none of this is helping and that Solskjaer is under enough pressure as it is.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Sharpe feels for the Red Devils boss, especially with the links regarding one particular candidate.

He said:

“At a club like United, the pressure is on every week.”

“You have to win every game and when you don’t, the pressure mounts.”

“He will have had a goal set at the start of the season which I believe would have been top four.”

“If they don’t get that questions will be asked and chats will be had behind the scenes.”

“The Pochettino situation doesn’t help matters.”

“But I also think Ole knows the pressure that comes with being in charge of the club.”

“He doesn’t need any outside influences putting extra pressure on him, he’ll already be feeling it.”
