TROY DEENEY believes Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is NOT the right man for the Manchester United job.
And the Watford striker turned Sun Sport columnist says nobody else ‘would have got the time’ the Norwegian has.
Solskjaer took charge of his 100th match yesterday but the Red Devils produced a disappointing display as they slipped to a 1-0 home defeat to Arsenal.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang bagged a penalty as the Gunners won at Old Trafford for the first time since 2006.
The result means United are winless in four home matches this season for the first time since 1972/73.
Former captain Roy Keane, an ex-team-mate of Solskjaer, blasted the performance after the game and claimed he did ‘not see men’ in the United side.
And Deeney believes the Irishman got it spot on as he stated the club needed a new manager.
Asked on Monday’s talkSPORT Breakfast if Solskjaer is the right man for the job, Deeney said: “If you had to look back over 100 games, you’d probably say ‘no’.
“I don’t think anybody else with that record would get the length of time he’d done.
“He seems like a lovely guy, I don’t know him, it’s not personal, I just don’t think he demands the respect off the other players.
“You listen to Roy Keane and the rant he had afterwards which was epic as always, I just don’t see how the players respect Solskjaer, you don’t see much change.”
Deeney continued: “Other than Greenwood, Rashford has started coming into his own, who would you really say has improved after him? That would be the question I’d ask.
“I think Pogba takes a lot of criticism and takes a lot of the blame away from a lot of people at Man United, but there were so many average performances yesterday in a game of that magnitude, why is that happening?
“They’ve just come off a couple of wins in the Champions League where everyone was saying they were ‘back to the United of old’, but you don’t see anything that would suggest they’re going to continue it for five or six weeks.”
