Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has just three games to save his job at Manchester United
After a 5-0 loss to their fiercest rivals at Old Trafford, Solskjaer is under a lot of pressure.
However, Bosnich, who played with Solskjaer at United from 1999 to 2001, believes the Norwegian is on borrowed time if he is unable to turn the team around.
‘It was a complete disaster.’ ‘There isn’t a better word,’ Bosnich told Sky Sports News.
‘It was heartbreaking. It was bad for a while in the first half, but I felt it was going to get to six, seven, or eight.
‘There is no denying that it is a really dark day.’ I want him to succeed because he is an ex-teammate, but I don’t believe he had any other option (he is still the right man).
‘If this continues, the board will have no choice but to look for a buyer – we don’t know if Manchester United has approached anyone about taking control.’
‘We have three big games coming up before the international break: Tottenham at home, Atalanta at home, and Manchester City at home.
‘If they lose those three games, which is a distinct possibility right now, I don’t see any other option.’
Bosnich, who won the Premier League in 2000 with Sir Alex Ferguson, also stated that the current group may not be behind Solskjaer anymore.
‘The bottom line is that you may talk about tactics and identity, but if the players aren’t executing it, aren’t doing the fundamental things, and appear as if they don’t want to play for the manager, you can rule out all of the other possibilities,’ he continued.
“What is going on?” is a question that must be asked.
‘It appears that there are deeper issues than having an identity and a style of play; at the moment, the players appear to be seeking for a way out.’
