Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s job is hanging by a thread at Old Trafford, but former Manchester United star Park Ji-sung claimed the manager deserves to stay on until the end of the season.

Solskjaer is under immense pressure ahead of United’s trip to Watford, following his side’s humiliating home defeats to bitter rivals Liverpool and Manchester City.

Ex-Man United star Park Ji-sung believes Ole Gunnar Solskjaer deserves until the end of the season to save his job at Old Trafford

But ex-winger Park believes the manager is to be commended for restoring the ‘spirit’ at Old Trafford and that he should be given until the end of the season to fight for his job.

“It’s been three years for Solskjaer as manager and I think this will be the defining season for him, when it comes to his survival at the club,” Park told GOAL.

“I think he deserves credit for what he’s done at United and deserves to fight” [for his job] until the end of the season, but after that he has to show that he can continue.

“He has done well to bring the old United spirit and culture back to us.

“That’s why I think we have to wait until the end of this season and then see. But if he can’t show [he’s good enough], it will be difficult for him to continue.’

But when a vacancy opens up, Park United legend Wayne has backed Rooney to take charge.

The former forward has only just started his coaching career and has had a rocky start to managerial life at Derby County.

Derby faces an almost certain relegation after being beaten with a 21 point penalty for financial violations and sitting all the way down at minus three points.

But his former team-mate tipped the Rams boss to return to the Old Trafford dugout.

“I think Wayne can make it,” Park said. “He had great experiences from a very young age and he also had many difficult moments in his career which he eventually overcame.

“Certainly, he also has great leadership skills. So I think he can be United’s manager in the future.”
