It’s obvious Ole Gunnar Solskjaer loves Manchester United.

He took the manager’s job to try and steer United back on track, and recapture our past glories.

Right now it looks more difficult than ever, and the investment which was promised in January still yet to materialise.

Pressure has been building on United owners the Glazers this past week, with fans venting frustration on social media.

It’s just the start of a new wave of protests against the Americans.

Stepping up

Solskjaer himself threw his voice behind United fans back in 2005.

When the Glazers were showing interest in United, Solskjaer became a patron of Shareholders United, a fans group set up to mobilise opposition to the takeover.

 

A United player at the time, he told The Telegraph: “I am honoured. I think it is important that the club remains in the right hands.

“I am absolutely on the supporters’ side and think the club is in very good hands as it is today, I am a United fan myself and only want what is best for the future.”

Sadly as we know, the takeover went through anyway.

Right now it appears Solskjaer is trying to influence things positively at United from within.

As he is finding out, financial constraints, a lack of football nous behind the scenes, and a team which has been poorly invested in for years is holding him back.

In so many ways, the Glazers don’t deserve him.
