Rio Ferdinand, a former Manchester United and England defender, has questioned Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s future as manager, calling for the “baton to be passed over.”
Following Saturday’s home loss to Manchester City and last month’s 5-0 hammering by Liverpool, Solskjaer is under a lot of pressure.
Ferdinand suggested on his YouTube show Vibe with Five that it might be time for the Norwegian to leave Old Trafford, adding that he “would depart with his head held high.”
“I believe it’s fantastic from where he came in to where he got us at the start of this season,” Ferdinand stated.
After the 2-0 derby setback, which came 13 days after the catastrophic 5-0 home loss to Liverpool, Solskjaer has come under heightened scrutiny.
United has only four points from its last six league games and is currently in sixth place, nine points behind leaders Chelsea.
