Champions League: Man Utd told to sack Solskjaer, hire Conte after defeat to Young Boys


Former Chelsea star, Jason Cundy, has said Manchester United should sack manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, after their 2-1 defeat to Young Boys in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

Cundy described the loss as an “absolute disaster”.

United took the lead through Cristiano Ronaldo, but they conceded twice after Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s red card.

The pressure is on Solskjaer after last season’s defeat to Villarreal in the Europa League final, but the club backed him this summer by signing Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane.

Antonio Conte is available after leaving Inter Milan at the end of last season and the Italian could provide the type of short-term success that United so badly need.

Cundy told talkSPORT: “United got exactly what they deserved and he’s been exposed again brutally

“The game changed on the red card but that didn’t mean it was over.

“Young Boys are normally whipping boys of European football and United get rolled over 2-1… it was a disasterclass, it was an absolute disaster.

“It exposed Ole, it did badly. I’d sack him. We know what’s coming, don’t we? You’ve got Antonio Conte out there.”
