Paul Parker says Manchester United can't give Ole Gunnar Solskjaer permanent role

Former Manchester United defender Paul Parker believes interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is not the right man to take the Red Devils forward in the long-term.

The 45-year-old replaced Jose Mourinho last month after the former Chelsea boss was sacked following a 3-1 defeat away at Anfield and has quickly won over the club’s supporters having easily won all four of his game so far – scoring 14 goals along the way.

However, Parker – who also played for England and Chelsea – says despite Solskjaer doing well now and getting good results, he shouldn’t be the next permanent manager at Old Trafford.

Parker claims that the Norwegian has brought happiness back into the United squad and will, therefore, get the best out of them. However, in long-term the 54-year-old believes Solskjaer will struggle to bring big names to Old Trafford as he lacks the experience and calibre top players and agents look for.

Speaking to Jim White’s talkSPORT radio show, Parker said: “Ole is a lovely fella, he has come in and he has brought a smile into the place, everyone is feeling happy and he will get the best of anybody when they are happy and doing their work.

“As good as it can be this season I think you have to look at the long-term and look at Manchester United. They need that little bit more, someone who is really going to out and attract the right players.”

Listen below to hear Parker’s full explanation for why United need a bigger name in the dugout from the start of next season.
