‘Manchester United are being ridiculous’ says former Spurs star

There has been a lot of debate over the appoinment of the new manager but the apparent approach of Manchester United has shocked Jermaine Jenas.

When Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was appointed, no one expected the Norwegian to be in the running for the full-time appointment. But the former Manchester United man has managed to rack up impressive results since taking over. Now, he is not only the in the running but also the favourite according to pundits and fans alike. It has been reported that the club has made a decision on Solskjaer’s future. And it has baffled pundit and former Spurs man, Jermaine Jenas.

“Has he not done enough?”

Reports had broken out early Saturday saying Solskjaer would be given the permanent job by United if he manages to beat PSG in the Champions League Round of 16. This has shocked Jermaine Jenas who believes the 45-year-old has done enough already to get the job.

“Why does he have to beat PSG to get the job?” he said on Football Focus.“That’s a weird kind of statement to make. Has he not [done enough already]? I feel like there has been a huge turnaround. The players seem to be playing the Manchester United way. There is excitement back in the stadium and they’re scoring goals. But if you don’t beat PSG then that all goes away?It’s a bit of a ridiculous statement I think.”

Jermaine also believes that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has brought back the club’s traditions and values. “A large part of the issues that they had was they had come away from what Manchester United was about,” he added. “Whether it was the morals or values of the football club and what they were seeing.”

“They needed to get back to it and obviously having somebody at the helm who understands that football club and also bringing in someone like Mike Phelan has probably been a huge advantage as well to kind of use their experiences. It seems to be that combination has brought back at better Manchester United.”

Author’s take

Jermaine Jenas has been long enough in football to know what to believe and what not to believe. He has criticised the club based on some random rumour spun by a media outlet hungry of clicks. It believe that a club of United’s size would decide on something this important based on the result of tie is just outrageous.
