Jamie Carragher believes that Manchester United need a better manager than Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

"He isn't at the same level as the other manager at the top of the Premier League."

Monday Night football was full of hot debates last night, but Jamie Carragher finally seemed to be the one to come out and point-blank state that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer isn't good enough to be Manchester United manager.

This comes a week after he claimed that Gary Neville and Roy Keane were too soft on him in terms of their criticism, due to the fact that they were former teammates.

The results this season haven't been good enough for the talent that has been purchased over the summer, and Carragher rightly points out that the former striker hasn't done a bad job, but simply isn't good enough.

"He came into the job with experience from Scandinavia and a year at Cardiff. I can't judge Solskjaer against Jose Mourinho or Louis van Gaal, who did average jobs themselves.

"Solskjaer will not win a Premier League or a Champions League as Manchester United manager. He is not at the level as Jurgen Klopp, Thomas Tuchel or Pep Guardiola, who have got years of experience and have won major trophies.

"Ole hasn't got that. So where he's got them means he's done a really good job. But this team is a good team.

"There is a feeling that if Ole wins a trophy, he should stay in a job. United are only going to win the FA Cup or Europa League - if he won one of them, United will still need to have a better manager.

"That's not a criticism of Ole but they need a manager that can compete with the other managers in this league.

"He knows himself as does every Manchester United fan, that he isn't at the same level as the other manager at the top of the Premier League."
