While speaking to the Stick to Football podcast, former Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjær pointed out his stance on Erik ten Hag and Sir Jim.

“I don’t think there’s a magic wand (at United) as in, ‘We’ve changed the owners,’” Solskjaer said.

“They’ve got their ways of working – the Glazers have still got their commercial – who knows how it’s going to be in football with that side of it, “he added.

The Norwegian manager was at the helm of the club for 2 years between 2019 and 2021, and he properly understands how difficult it was to work under the Glazers with no solid footballing structure.

Ole Gunnar Solskjær also gave his opinion of Erik ten Hag stating how he hopes the Dutch tactician is successful all the while being cautious of what the new owners are thinking on the managerial front.

“Obviously Erik, I hope he’s going to be successful. We hope he’s going to make it, but you never know what the new owners are thinking. It’s about results and consistency the rest of the season.” Ole added

He is right about one thing: it is all about results and consistency for the rest of the season: ten Hag’s reds have struggled for results and any form of consistency this season.

The season has been nothing short of dire this season, well into March: out of Europe, languishing in 6th and 11 points off top 4.

A season like this is not befitting, nor does it make for a good reference in ten Hag’s CV if he is looking to stay longer at the Theatre of Dreams.

It stands to reason that Sir Jim and his INEOS contingent will be judging ten Hag based on results from this point towards the end of the season as they seek to make a decision on his future.

The only hope for a trophy rests entirely on winning the F.A Cup which will be quite a tall task with our next round being against high-flying Liverpool in 2 weeks.
