Former Manchester United goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel has dismissed his calls for sacking Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as “ridiculous”. By comparing him to previous bosses like Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho.
The Red Devils have entered the national team break. They have only picked up one point in their last two league games at Old Trafford. After drawing at Everton and losing to Aston Villa.
United had to rely on Cristiano Ronaldo’s goals to beat Villarreal. Leaving their hopes of Solskjaer’s first trophy still on track.
Schmeichel argued with fans who has low tolerance with the Norwegian boss The supporters were disappointed. And fed up with the directionless form. Including the decision to drop Ronaldo in the game against the Toffees
The former Red Devils goalkeeper said the call for Solcha’s dismissal was nonsense. And ask the fans if they want to be like Van Gaal or another Mourinho?
“I think it’s ridiculous. Absolute nonsense,” Schmeichel told ITV Sport when asked about a call by Manchester United fans to sack Solskjaer.

“They need someone like (Louis) van Gaal or like (Jose) Mourinho? What do they want?”
“There has been an attempt to bring in what is known as a big-name manager. And they didn’t care. And the same attention to detail with the youngsters, development and DNA of the club as Ole has.”
“The period before him (Solcha) there were many players coming in. And many coaches left So everything needs to be rebuilt. I hope people understand that it takes time.”
“Remember that we finished runner-up last season. If we can do it again it’s still very good.”
“Give Ole some time. Don’t throw big headlines like ‘Ole out’ because the next question is, ‘Then who will it be?
“If anyone can find a manager who is guaranteed to do better. I’m also happy to debate. But now I don’t see any of those names.”
