It Appears Ole Does Not Know What He Is Doing As Many Former Man United Players Are Criticizing Him

This season, Ferdinand's take on Solskjaer's employment situation is less dramatic and immediate, and more straightforward: he must win trophies or face the sack. 'Ole hasn't proven he can win at this level yet,' Ferdinand said BT Sport last week. 'Of all the managers in the top-four race, Ole hasn't proven he can win at this level yet.' 'He's done all he's been required to do up until now.' It's now D-Day.

The difference this time is that Ferdinand's rants against Solskjaer's United are far more regular, bordering on obsessive. While the former United and England defender is a frequent BT Sport commentator, it's possible that the introduction and recent success of his own personal Vibe with FIVE podcast - which has grown in popularity over the last year - has influenced how often he speaks to United fans about Solskjaer's management. As a former player, Ferdinand has reverted to the role of United supporter with an opinion just like everyone else. Other United supporters, on the other hand, have not played over 300 games for the club, have not sat and smiled with Solskjaer while watching training, and have not maintained frequent touch with several members of the squad.

The club's mood is harmed by Ferdinand's outbursts, particularly the latest negative ones, and Solskjaer is well aware of this. The BT Sport commentator isn't the first - nor will he be the last - former United star to criticize the club's management. Peter Schmeichel and Paul Scholes both slammed Solskjaer's tactics in the Young Boys defeat, with the latter also claiming United had become too 'kind' a club under the Norwegian. Solskjaer isn't the first United boss to bear the brunt of former Red Devils players' comments while working as commentators. After Sky commentator Gary Neville labeled United's performance under Louis van Gaal as "Sunday league-like," the Dutchman advised the Sky pundit to "pay attention to his comments" as a "ex-legend."

But this is a different Manchester United, one that is at a critical juncture in its history. Ferdinand is referring to a team that hasn't won the Premier League in eight years but has put together its greatest group in years. What are your thoughts on this matter?
