Patrice Evra believes that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is the right man to lead Manchester United forward after their dip in performances in recent seasons.

Solskjaer was handed the job on a permanent basis back in March of this year after he was initially brought in on a temporary deal to replace Jose Mourinho in December 2018.

Manchester United finished in sixth place and without a trophy last season and Solskjaer has now been tasked with steering the Red Devils into the Champions League spots this season.

The Red Devils are currently in fourth place in the Premier League table as they chase Champions League qualification this season.

And former Manchester United defender Evra feels that Solskjaer is the right man to take the Red Devils forward.

Speaking in an interview with Sky Sports, Evra said: “We’ve had too many managers, David Moyes, [Louis] van Gaal, [Jose] Mourinho. I just think for the players it’s difficult.

“One manager wants to play one way, another manager wants to play another way, you need to know the value of the club and Manchester United.

“That’s why I think Ole is a good appointment for the club. He knows the philosophy of the club.

“It’s difficult when you come to Manchester United from the outside, people don’t accept you straight away. You need to bleed for this club before people accept you.

“We are a big club. We want to win trophies. We don’t want to spend more than 10 years without winning the league again. It’s not easy but the fans have to believe – it’s a process.”

Manchester United will return to Europa League action on Thursday night when they host Astana at Old Trafford.

They will then take on West Ham United away from home in the Premier League as they bid to try and make it back to back wins in the top flight for the first time this season.

The Red Devils have not won the Premier League since their final triumph under Sir Alex Ferguson in 2013.
