Manchester United urged not to sack manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer no matter how the season ends, by former player Danny Hinginbotham when speaking on ESPN. 

All season long United as a team seem to have taken one or two steps forward in terms of form and results and then followed it up with a disappointing display.

It was a theme which was making the Old Trafford faithful ever-more frustrated despite always vocally sticking with manager and United legend Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Higginbotham was a professional for 17 years.

However, since the January transfer market where Solskjaer brought in Bruno Fernandes from Sporting Lisbon and Odion Ighalo United have looked a much better team and are starting to build some consistency.

Former United academy graduate and professional footballer Danny Higginbotham gave a ringing endorsement of the United manager.

He said: “I think he has to be [the manager next season] because otherwise what you’re going to do, if you say ‘right okay, we’re going to go again’ that means another manager’s going to come in, he’s going to want another £200m-£250m, he’s going to want another group of players that suit his style, therefore some of the players that have been brought in for £60m-£70m-£80m may not suit the style of the new manager.

Adding: “So what are you going to keep doing? Are you going to keep ripping it up every two years? Because that’s what United have done.

“Due to ripping it up you lose your identity. Manchester United since Sir Alex Ferguson left the club have completely lost their identity.
