That’s according to Roy Keane and Gary Neville, who believe that fresh from United’s early exit from the Champions League, Solskjaer still has points to prove over the rest of this season to demonstrate he can guide United back to the summit of English and European football.
Solskjaer’s side showed defensive solidity but little going forward in their goalless draw in the Manchester derby at Old Trafford – a point Solskjaer was happy with – but the United legends want to see the club dominating games and lifting silverware.
“I think he has got to get his hands on a trophy,” said Keane, “There’s an obsession about getting in the top four, but l think Manchester United should be automatically doing that.
“I think by the end of the season Ole will have been in the job long enough to say do we think he is the man to get Manchester United back to challenging for titles. I still think they are behind Liverpool, Tottenham and Chelsea. But get your hands on some trophies.”
