United’s manager has done well over the past couple of years, up to a point. That point coming somewhere around the end of last season when his team finished second in the Premier League and finished second again in the Europa League final a few days later.
Perhaps Solskjaer will muddle on for a little while longer, or perhaps he will have cleared his desk by the time you’re reading this, but either way his legacy as United’s manager is unlikely to read any different. Even if he were to stay until May it is hard to envisage progress on or even parity with the reasonable achievements of last term.
