- Paul Ince has lashed out at Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's performances in recent weeks
- Man United have managed just two wins in their last nine matches, losing seven
- The Red Devils are three points behind the Premier League top four place
Paul Ince slams Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, claiming the Norwegian is not competent of returning Manchester United back to their glory days.
The Red Devils have lost seven in their last nine matches and are left three points outside of the Premier League top four.
United did not pose real threat when they lost to Man City in the Manchester derby at Old Trafford just a few days after the humiliating 4-0 defeat at Everton.
Now the pressure is on Solskajer who just got the appointment as manager on a permanent basis last month after winning 14 of his 19 matches in charge as interim boss.
But former United midfielder Ince believes that Solskjaer was given the appointment stressing that the Norwegian does not have what it takes to overcome the current crisis.
Speaking to Paddy Power , he said: “I’m looking at the club and the future really worries me.
“They’re a long, long way from many teams. Why did those players perform so well when Ole came in and now they’re not?
“There’s no character, no leadership, no desire, but the manager has to motivate the players too.
“These are the same players that were playing brilliantly a few weeks ago, so if they’re not feeling motivated it’s down to Ole to sort that.
“I called it before he was made manager and got stick for it, but what I said was right. I want him to be successful, but I don’t think he’s capable of doing the job.
“It’s a huge rebuilding job, and will the players want to come to Man United to play under him? I’m not sure – it’s different to the bigger names like Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp.
“The fact is, they should’ve waited until the end of the season before they gave him the permanent job.
“There was no rush to appoint him, but everyone got caught up in the euphoria and was thinking with their hearts rather than their heads.
“Zinedine Zidane was available at the time and Mauricio Pochettino has always been the right man to take them forward in my eyes.”

Ince also added that he is fed up of hearing about Solskjaer's previous exploits as a player.
He added: “We’ve tried this nice approach, the stuff about Ole giving the tea lady chocolates and trying to do what Sir Alex Ferguson has done.
“That’s in the past now, we need to move forward from that.
“All of this ‘Ole legend’ stuff – yeah, he scored the winner in the 1999 Champions League final, we get that, but he’s not a legend now – he’s the manager of Manchester United.
“Regurgitating how he’s going to do it ‘the Fergie Way’ is pointless. It’s doing my head in and I know others feel the same. Ferguson isn’t the gaffer anymore – simple.
"No doubt he would help if Ole was in trouble, but I’m sick and tired of it, he’s the manager, he has to forget about the past and realise Ferguson isn’t the manager anymore, he is.”
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Gary Neville has identified at least five Man United players failing under club boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Neville's revelation came days after United suffered a 4-0 defeat against Everton on Sunday, April 21, at Goodison Park.
