Mills slams 'incredibly poor' Man United chiefs after source's update on Solskjaer's future
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is not the right man for Man United and next week’s game against Watford is irrelevant, according to Danny Mills.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-Man City and England defender insisted it is “incredibly poor” from Man United chiefs that they have essentially given Solskjaer a run of games to “save his job”.
A club source told Football Insider (November 10) that he will be sacked if he does not revive his side’s form immediately after the international break.
Man United had picked up just four Premier League points from a possible 18 heading into the break.
They travel to Watford next week (November 20) before hosting Chelsea at the end of the month.
“I’ve said it many, many times I don’t think he’s the right man to take them forward,” Mills told Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley.

“The board should be having doubts, definitely, they should be.
“I’ve never been one for you’ve got one game to save your job, two games to save your job. You’re either the right man to take them forward in the long-term or you’re not.
“Look at Norwich, the decision was made to sack Daniel Farke whether they beat Brentford or not. They saw that as the right thing to do.
“You can play awfully and win the game, the opposition might have scored two own goals and you get battered. But you stay in the job because you win the game.
“Either you are the right man long-term or not. If you’re not, get rid.
“Then it’s about decisive management and making the right decisions. If you’re telling your manager ‘You’ve got two games to turn it around’, I think that’s incredibly poor.
“That’s not the way you should manage. No other industry in the world would work like that.”
