Former Manchester United star Paul Parker believes there is a “witch hunt” against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer but has backed the Old Trafford gaffer to prove his doubters wrong amid continuing reports of Mauricio Pochettino being touted as the club’s next manager. Solskjaer enjoyed a brilliant result against French champions Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday night with Marcus Rashford scoring the winner.
It followed on from an impressive 4-1 win away from home against Newcastle a few days before.
But Solskjaer was facing serious questions as United boss prior to the international break following the humiliating 6-1 defeat to Tottenham.
There has been ongoing reports linking Pochettino with taking over at United, casting a shadow over Solskjaer’s time in charge.
Being United manager comes with its usual pressures but the position has been under the microscope more than ever in recent years, particularly with the success of rivals Liverpool and Manchester City.
