Gary Neville believes that the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was inevitable after the 4-1 drubbing at the hands of Watford. He believes that Solksjaer can not have any regrets after the recent form reached a new low. Neville had backed his former teammate in recent times despite the form but admits that the board had no alternative after the drubbing.

“I always say that managers deserve two or three years in the job,” Gary Neville said after the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. “Ole cannot complain. He has been given three years. He has been backed in the transfer market. David Moyes was given eight months and kicked out. I don’t think Ole can complain about the time that he has been given and the money that he has been afforded. I don’t think he can complain about the players delivered to him.”

“Watford mauled Manchester United,” he added. “Ole could not get a performance out of them in the end. The players looked drained of confidence. I am not surprised today that it has ended. He has always had that result in the past that has pulled him out of the mire when you thought it might get a little bit too tricky for him. But this time the results have just got worse and worse. The worst thing has been the performances. I do think he will be massively disappointed about the fact that he has not been able to deliver performances this season.”
