News24 – Man Utd news: BBC Sport pundit slams United over THIS ‘ridiculous statement’


 That is the opinion of BBC Sport pundit and ex-Tottenham and Newcastle star Jermaine Jenas  Reports on Saturday claimed Solskjaer would get the Manchester United job full time if his side reached the quarter-final of the Champions League at PSG’s expense  Solskjaer is unbeaten in his first nine matches in charge, winning eight, and has got United within two points of the Premier League top four  And Jenas believes the Norwegian has done enough already to get the job. “Why does he have to beat PSG to get the job?” he said on Football Focus  “That’s a weird kind of statement to make. Has he not [done enough already]? “I feel like there has been a huge turnaround  “The players seem to be playing the Manchester United way, there is excitement back in the stadium, they’re scoring goals  “But if you don’t beat PSG then that all goes away? “It’s a bit of a ridiculous statement I think ” Jenas claims Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has contributed to bringing United’s values back to the club  “A large part of the issues that they had was they had come away from what Manchester United was about,” he added  “Whether it was the morals or values of the football club and what they were seeing  “They needed to get back to it and obviously having somebody at the helm who understands that football club and also bringing in someone like Mike Phelan has probably been a huge advantage as well to kind of use their experiences  “It seems to be that combination has brought back at better Manchester United.” United will look to return to winning ways on Sunday when they visit Leicester
