Ed Woodward Told To Do One Thing For Man Utd To Progress

Manchester United have lost their opening two Premier League matches of the season at Old Trafford – the last being Sunday's 6-1 demolition by Tottenham.

And former Manchester City and England right-back Danny Mills thinks the buck stops with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and says sacking the Norwegian is what executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward needs to do.

Mills said on talkSPORT: “What can Manchester United do right now to change what they're doing on the pitch? The only thing you can do is change the manager.

“Let's say Leeds lose their manager right now, [Marcelo] Bielsa goes, he's had enough, he walks out.

“Okay, who do I want to replace him? You start looking at the names and you go: ‘[Jose] Mourinho, yes, Pep [Guardiola] yes, [Jurgen] Klopp, yes, [Carlo] Ancelotti, yep, Brendan Rodgers, yep, David Moyes, probably, Frank Lampard, yes, [Mikel] Arteta, yes'.

“And then you start to think about Ole Gunnar Solskjaer – not convinced.

“He's half way down the list at least and that's without the likes of [Mauricio] Pochettino coming into the mix, people who are out of a job right now.

“So the only thing you can change at Manchester United to improve them and improve the mentality, is the manager.

“He's not necessarily a bad coach but he's inexperienced at this level and he looks out of his depth at times.”
