Carragher gets last laugh in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer spat over Man Utd “excuses”

Manchester United's dismal run continues after they were thumped 4-2 by Leicester on Saturday, and pressure is beginning to seriously mount on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The United boss steered the Red Devils to a respectable second place finish last season, but Jamie Carragher has recently been involved with a spat with Solskjaer after claiming that too many excuses are being made for their lack of success.

United have only won two out of their last seven games, despite re-signing five-time Ballon d'Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo, as well as Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane this summer.

Carragher has admitted he is "sick of it", and his thoughts are becoming more popular as United continue to struggle.

Carragher recently ranted to former boxer Tony Bellew on the Tony Bellew is Angry podcast, and claimed that the excuses are even being made by is Monday Night Football co-host Gary Neville and fellow ex-United star Roy Keane.

The former Liverpool defender said: "He’s permanently making excuses for his mate Ole, isn’t he?

"I do a newspaper column and I was with Gary Neville a few days before, we were doing this YouTube chat about the season with Roy Keane, and the two of them were making excuses for Ole because he’s played with them and he’s their mate.

"They’re sort of saying ‘they can’t win the league, they still lack this, they still need that, the Glazers aren’t putting enough in, they should be going for Harry Kane’.

"I’m sitting there thinking, ‘you’ve just signed a fella that’s won the Champions League four times (Ronaldo)’.

"You’ve spent £75million on a winger (Sancho), you’ve finished second in the Premier League last season, you didn’t lose a game away from home (in the league). There’s only one place to go.

"Honestly, it just wound me up and I thought, ‘that is it, I’m doing my newspaper column on it’. Ole wasn’t too happy with the column, but I just said it’s time the excuses stop at Manchester United, I’m sick of it.

"It’s always, ‘they still lack this, they lack that’ – every player’s on £50million. You go through the whole team, it’s unbelievable."

Frustration is starting to grow and time appears to be running out for Solskjaer to win back the fans, and they face a tricky run of games, with Liverpool, Tottenham and Manchester City coming up next in the Premier League.
