Peter Schmeichel has urged Manchester United supporters to give Ole Gunnar Solskjaer more time at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils suffered a 1-0 loss to Newcastle United at Old Trafford on Sunday following Matty Longstaff’s goal in the second half.

Manchester United are in 12th place in the Premier League table and a mere two points above the relegation zone.

The 20-time English champions have only managed to win two of their eight Premier League games so far this term.

Manchester United were 4-0 winners against Chelsea FC at Old Trafford on the opening day of the season before a 1-0 victory over Leicester.

But Solskjaer’s side have lost to Crystal Palace, West Ham United and Newcastle in the current campaign.

The Norwegian head coach is coming under increasing pressure due to Manchester United’s poor start to the Premier League season.

However, Schmeichel is remaining fully supportive of Solskjaer, highlighting the time that Sir Alex Ferguson required to be a success at Manchester United.

Schmeichel wrote on Twitter: “Before we all go mad about what needs to be done and gets carried away on how ‘bad’ it is, let’s just remind ourselves of how long it took SAF to create a winning team @ManUtd building success takes time!”

Manchester United haven’t won the Premier League title since 2013 in spite of the massive investment in playing staff.

David Moyes, Louis van Gaal, Jose Mourinho and Solskjaer have all attempted to revive the club’s fortunes.

Manchester United finished in sixth place in the Premier League table last term.
