Solskjaer on Manchester United: 'No Magic Wand in terms of ownership change

Former Manchester United player and manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has commented on the current state of his former club, emphasizing that there is no magic wand that could solve some of the issues within the club.

Speaking on a podcast, Solskjaer also discussed the new co-owner of Manchester United, Jim Ratcliffe, and the majority owners, the Glazer family:

“I hope Erik ten Hag will be successful. I hope he succeeds, but you never know what the new owners are thinking. It’s about results and ensuring the team remains consistent throughout the season. I believe there is no magic wand in terms of ownership change. They obviously have their way of operating; the Glazers are still in charge of commercial affairs. Who knows how it will be in football.”

The new co-owner has stated that fans need to be patient because success takes time, ranging from two to three seasons. Ratcliffe will oversee footballing operations, but the Glazer family remains the majority owner of the club.

Solskjaer served as the manager of Manchester United from 2018 to 2021. Currently, United sits sixth in the table, trailing league leaders Liverpool by 19 points.

As the club navigates through this period of transition, Solskjaer’s insights shed light on the challenges and uncertainties surrounding Manchester United’s future.
