Manchester United shouldn't have rushed to appoint Ole Gunnar Solskjaer permanently - Peter Crouch

Former Liverpool striker, Peter Crouch has blamed the Manchester United board for permanently handling over the coaching role to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer so soon.

In what it can be called a bad run for the red devils, Ole's side have lost seven of their last nine matches.

Peter who is a columnist Sportsmail has reiterated that although Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had absolutely earned the opportunity to be given a permanent role but there shouldn't have been any pressure on United to make such decision so quick.

"Back on March 9, I questioned on these pages why there was a rush to appoint Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on a permanent deal. I didn't say he shouldn't be manager — he had absolutely earned the opportunity — but there was no pressure on United to do it", Crouch said.

"Things were ticking along nicely and they had just beaten Paris Saint-Germain. Since his position was formalised on March 28, they have only beaten Watford and West Ham, and the feel-good factor has gone", he continued.
