Liverpool legend and Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher is adamant that Manchester United need a better manager than Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to compete with the top three teams of Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City. Jamie Carragher resumed his war of words with Red Devils boss Solskjaeron Sky Sports shortly after the mammoth Premier League clash between Manchester United and Liverpool at the Theatre of Dreams on Sunday evening.

Manchester United manager Solskjaerhad earlier fired back at Jamie Carragher after he insinuated during last week's Monday Night Football (MNF) on Sky Sportsthat the club needs a better manager to fight the likes of JurgenKlopp, Pep Guardiola and Thomas Tuchel for the major trophies.

After the Liverpool game at Old Trafford at the start of this week, Carragher reiterated his stance on Solskjaer. According to him, if football stakeholders are saying that Manchester United need better midfielders thanScotland international Scott McTominay and Brazilian player Fred, they are also need someone better in the dugout.
Jamie Carragher went on to say that he's not advocating for Solskjaer to lose his job before adding that the reality of the situation on ground points to the need for an experienced manager. His fellow pundit, Gary Neville didn't share his sentiments as he said experienced managers such as Louis Van Gaal (LVG) and Jose Mourinho failed with the Old Trafford job.
Manchester United boss Solskjaer is a man under a lot of pressure after the 5-0 defeat suffered at the hands of arch rivals Liverpool at the Theatre of Dreams at the weekend. Manchester United capitulated in the first half and end up conceding four goals to Naby Keita, Diogo Jota and Mohamed Salah (2). Salah completed his treble at the start of the second half to make it 5-0 thus becoming the first player to score three goals at the home of Manchester United in the Premier League era. Manchester United ended the match with a man down after Paul Pogba was sent off on thehour mark for a foul on Keita having come on for Mason Greenwood at the start of the second half.
