Former Aston Villa striker, Gabby Agbonlahor has said the reason why Manchester United is yet to sack Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is because of their 3-0 win against Tottenham last weekend.
Solskjaer’s job has been threatened since the club suffered a 5-0 loss at home to Liverpool in the English Premier League two weeks ago.
However, Agbonlahor believes Solskjaer deserves to be credited for United’s win at Tottenham despite calls for his sack.
“The players played for him today,” Agbonlahor told talkSPORT.
“From the first second of the game, they showed fight. They were fighting for Solskjaer.
“This was the obvious formation to play; your defenders are struggling, if you are struggling to keep clean sheets, what are you going to do?
“You go five at the back, it’s not rocket science. I said it midweek, play five at the back, stop the goals going in, you have got goalscorers in your team. You’ve got Ronaldo, Cavani, Greenwood or Rashford as two strikers they would’ve scored, Rashford come on and scored playing against a bang average Spurs team.
“Basically, for me, this is just prolonging what is going to happen, Ole’s going to leave Manchester United, but you’ve got to give him credit for getting a result today.”
