Ole Gunnar Soulsjer’s emotional farewell interview with MUTV has received mixed reviews since its release yesterday.
One man who has not commented on the video is a toxport pundit, and former Premier League footballer Jamie O’Hara, who has labeled it “embarrassing”.
After a shocking 4-1 defeat to Watford on Saturday, Soulsjer was sacked as Manchester United manager, resulting in United’s fifth Premier League defeat of the season.
However, he was given the opportunity to say goodbye to fans in the form of a video interview, before leaving the United training ground for the final time as Soulsjear’s head coach.
The 48-year-old was visibly upset when he spoke about the contributions of United coaches such as Michael Carrick, who will take charge of the team for Tuesday’s Champions League visit to Villarreal.
And yet, for O’Hara, who now works as a pundit at TalkSport, the interview was a misguided, “embarrassing” way for Soulsjer to leave the club.
“He’s a good guy and you want to see people doing well. He was out of his depth.
“But come on, that’s what [the interview], What are they doing? I mean, you don’t see Chelsea doing this with Frank Lampard.
“You didn’t see Frank Lampard give an interview to Chelsea when he got the sack. And he’s talking about being a club legend. It’s embarrassing.”
Former Spurs and Fulham midfielder believe Chelsea’s brutal, but efficient manager should serve as an example for United – and win trophies Blues This has been further evidenced in recent years.
“Chelsea got rid of Frank Lampard, brought on [Thomas] Tuchel, who won the Champions League, said, “We’re moving on. Thanks Frank. We’re moving on,” O’Hara added.
“What? You fired him [Solskjaer]”They’re not good enough. Manchester United are miles away from it. They’ve got the money to do the job to get the best out of the team.
