Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: Alan Brazil says Manchester United boss is running out of time at Old Trafford after

Alan Brazil reckons it’s only a matter of time before Ole Gunnar Solskjaer loses his job at Manchester United.

Things went from bad to worse for the Red Devils as they drew 0-0 at AZ Alkmaar in the Europa League without registering a single shot on target.

It extends United’s winless run away from home to ten games, dating back to their victory over Paris Saint-Germain in March, and talkSPORT host Brazil suggests last night was the last straw.

“That was a joke last night,” he said. “If they got the penalty, that would’ve been their first shot on target.

Solskjaer has had a difficult start to the season

“How can you not have a shot on target? Solskjaer seems a lovely guy but I just got a sense the other day, when he said ‘you lot’ to the press, like he felt they were giving him a hard time.

“He’s feeling the pressure. I don’t think he’s going to last.

“Not a shot on target last night for United. That can’t be right.”

Also on the Sports Breakfast this morning, Man United correspondent Neil Custis joined Big Al and Jamie O’Hara to discuss the fallout from the club’s latest horror show.

And The Sun journalist claimed the Red Devils are now back in the dark ages before Sir Alex Ferguson took over.

“It’s a poor side and it’s a side which will finish mid-table,” he told talkSPORT. “Unfortunately for Manchester United fans, that’s where it’s at.

“I was sat there last night and I turned round to colleagues and said, ‘Is this as bad as I think it is?’

“Sometimes you watch a match and you wonder whether you’re missing something. But no, we all agreed it was as bad as we thought it was. And it’s not going to get any better any time soon.

“Solskjaer, to be fair to him, he’s trying to be positive. He’s trying to be positive about the team and the players, but it’s wearing thin now.

“I think Man United are now back to where they were before Sir Alex took over.

“What do they do if they get rid of Solskjaer? Who comes in? You can only work with what you’ve got and what you’ve got isn’t very good. It comes to a point where you just have to accept that is how it is.

“I’ve covered this squad for 20 years and this is the worst team or squad I have ever seen in that time.

“They will do well to finish in the top ten.”
