Liverpool inflicted an embarrassing 5-0 defeat on Manchester United; Carragher reinforced his opinion Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is not good enough to manage a title-chasing team; Gary Neville calls for stability and cannot see the United board sacking Solskjaer this season

Although he was quick to point out Solskjaer has done a good job as United manager up until now, Carragher feels there is simply no chance of him competing with Jurgen Klopp, Pep Guardiola and Thomas Tuchel when it comes to winning major trophies.

“I think Ole has done a good job but to take on Klopp, Tuchel and Pep, Manchester United need a better manager,” he said.

“I wasn’t saying that on Monday in a disrespectful way, I feel for Ole – that will be the darkest day in his career. I don’t want to get involved in a slanging match, I know Ole said something back and rightly so. I’m not comfortable saying someone should be sacked – but we are comfortable saying Fred is not good enough or Scott McTominay is not good enough so I do not feel too bad saying Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is not good enough.

“Manchester United need a better manager. Ole is not a manager for Manchester United. He’s done really well but you need someone to take them to the next level. Unfortunately, Solskjaer is not Jurgen Klopp, Pep Guardiola or Thomas Tuchel. It’s staring you in the face.”

He added: “Manchester United should have the best in class – the best managers and coaches in the world. If you have Ole as the manager you should have someone like Carlos Queiroz as the assistant coach. You cannot have people learning on the job who have never been at the club of that size. They have got Mike Phelan but I do not think he’s a coach, there’s Michael Carrick and Kieren McKenna, they have never coached anyone in their lives.

“You have got to have someone who has been there and done it. You cannot be learning on the job at Manchester United.”
