Man Utd monitoring PSG boss Thomas Tuchel amid Ole Gunnar Solskjaer problems at club | Football | Sport


Manchester United are reportedly monitoring Thomas Tuchel’s situation at Paris Saint-Germain amid their stuttering form under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The Red Devils named Solskjaer as their replacement for Jose Mourinho back in December, with the Norwegian initially masterminding 14 wins from his first 17 matches across all competitions.

Manchester United have dropped off ever since the Norwegian was made permanent boss back in March and have endured a troubled start to the new Premier League season.

United have won two of their first five matches and French outlet Le10 Sport claim Tuchel is now being monitored.

The PSG boss is under pressure himself over at the Parc des Princes.

Tuchel was lucky to last in the job after failing to win the Champions League last season.

And the report claims the German’s position is ‘fragile’ over in France and his future beyond the current campaign is uncertain.

Unless PSG have a stunning season on the European front, then Tuchel will likely be sacked at the end of the campaign.

And that would allow him to take over at United should they choose to part ways with Solskjaer.

Solskjaer is a popular figure among Red Devils fans and many want him to succeed.

Among them is former United captain Gary Neville, who believes the Norwegian boss can emulate Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool – if given time.

“When you have a young team like the one Manchester United have – it’s got a lot of players who are developing and trying to improve themselves – I think they are going to get a lot of results like this where they do OK in the game,” he told Sky Sports.

“I thought they performed okay against Southampton, but they just don’t have that clinical element which would allow them to see the game off and win the game.

“There is an element of frustration from United fans because of where the club have been.

“There’s still that recent history of big success under Sir Alex Ferguson but there’s been six or seven years now since that and there’s an element of frustration building – real frustration – that they are not on the right track.

“I think they are on the right track in terms of what they are doing because the first thing United must do, you have to have a group of people in that changing room that want to be there.

“Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, in what he is doing, is trying to play the long game. To play the long game he is going to need the support from up above.

“He’s going to need strong leadership over the next two or three seasons to be able to have those four or five transfer windows that he needs, not just to actually get people in the dressing room all facing the same direction, but to get the quality in that’s needed. You need the quality to go with the alignment in the dressing room.

“What Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp have done at Man City and Liverpool, it took time to get right.

“It took Guardiola 12 months, three transfer windows, because he had a better squad in the first place.

“It’s taken Klopp three or four years to affect the culture fully and get a team fully in what he would say is his style, his culture and what he wants to do.

“It does take time. Solskjaer is working more with a squad like the one Klopp picked up at Liverpool than the one Guardiola inherited at City.

“From that point of view, this is going to be a long game at Old Trafford and it’s going to be frustrating at times.”
