Fans slam Neville after he admitted he won't call out 'mate' Solskjaer

  Fans slam Neville after he admitted he won't call out 'mate' Solskjaer Neville, along with his Monday Night Football co-pundit Jamie Carragher, are notoriously forthright with their views, and regularly hit out at managers and players who are underperforming. With United stuck down in sixth and plenty calling for Solskjaer to be sacked, it is perhaps understandable that many would expect Neville to have some harsh words for his former team-mate, but he has openly admitted that he refuses to call him out.

Peter Schmeichel has doubled down on his defence of former team-mate Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as the Manchester United legend insisted that Antonio Conte should not replace the Norwegian at Old Trafford.

Pressure is mounting on the United boss after a disappointing run of three league games without victory heading into Sunday's crunch clash with arch rivals Liverpool.

Italian boss Conte has been linked with the post and despite the 52-year-old's success with Inter and Chelsea, Schmeichel does not believe that he would be suitable for United.

'You can say, "Conte is brilliant", but he doesn't stay anywhere for more than a couple of years,' the former goalkeeper told The Times.

Crouch says Solskjaer doesn't want to 'upset' Manchester United stars

  Crouch says Solskjaer doesn't want to 'upset' Manchester United stars Peter Crouch has hinted that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is not getting the most out of his Manchester United side following their comeback victory over Atalanta. United had fallen 2-0 down at home to the Italian side in their Champions League group stage encounter on Wednesday.But a second half comeback saw goals from Marcus Rashford and Harry Maguire bring the hosts level before Cristiano Ronaldo nodded home the winner nine minutes from time.

'We are not that football club. We tried that already. It doesn't work. Louis van Gaal didn't win the Premier League, [Jose] Mourinho didn't. You say Conte or another name, it's no difference.

'It's about them and what they want to do in a small window of Manchester United's big history.

'The problem Ole has is that in this world of quick fixes and fast news he has to win yesterday.

'It has to be delivered now. But it's not the real world. We stopped that development for a period and our competitors closed the gap then ran away.'

No sign Solskjaer is next Klopp

  No sign Solskjaer is next Klopp Jurgen Klopp was supposed to be the template for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer but thinking he could replicate him owes more to faith than reason.Like Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the Liverpool manager won nothing in his first two full seasons in charge. Indeed, as Gary Neville pointed out on Monday Night Football in August, their records were "almost exact in terms of performance" during that period.

Solskjaer has entered his third full season as Manchester United boss and is still searching for his first trophy.

The Norwegian fell short in the Europa League final last term and United currently lie five points adrift of league leaders Chelsea after eight games.

Schmeichel previously labelled criticism of Solskjaer 'ridiculous', telling ITV: 'Do they (United fans) want another Van Gaal or another Mourinho? What do they want?

'It's been tried, bringing in the so-called big-name managers and they don't have the same care and attention to detail in the youth and development and DNA of the club as Ole has.'
