The Red Devils are currently on a run of just three wins in their last nine matches in all competitions with many Red Devils fans now ready to see a fresh appointment.

And Neville has received a backlash on social media for not calling on the club to sack Solskjaer despite the Man Utd manager being his friend.

Solskjaer doesn’t believe he should be Man Utd manager…

Barnes thinks they should stick with Solskjaer until the end of the season, the former Liverpool man told BonusCodeBets: “It’s never a good idea to change manager midway through the season.

“If Manchester United bring in a new manager now with the team they have and the way they’re playing, nothing will change that quickly. It’s not ideal.

“Manchester United also have to look at who’s available, there’s not too many options right now. A new manager coming to Manchester United isn’t going to win them the league or finish in the top two or three. They can still finish in the Champions League places but sacking Ole now isn’t the way forward for United.”

If you would have said 22 years ago that United fans would be turning on me for supporting the guy who won “ Us “ the Champions League I would have said no way! But it’s 2021 folks! In the “ Johnson Era “ anything goes

And Barnes reckons that football needs more pundits, like Neville, who can empathise with managers.

Barnes added: “Pundits shouldn’t call for managers to be sacked regardless of whether they’re friends or not. A pundit is there to give his expert opinion on the football.

“They don’t know the ins and outs of a club, nor the inner workings of the training ground dynamic to say whether a certain manager should, or shouldn’t, be sacked. Pundits don’t know the relationship he has with the players or the board because he’s a pundit.

“Pundits should comment on what they see and what they know, not on speculation, otherwise every time a team loses, they’d be saying the manager should be sacked.

“I was never the type of pundit who called for mangers to be sacked. It’s not a question of calling him out, because he [Neville] has been critical of Ole and Manchester United in the past, but just because he’s not calling for Solskjaer’s sacking, doesn’t mean he’s not doing his job properly. That’s not what his job is.

“I’d actually like to see more pundits like Neville in terms of supporting managers, particularly pundits who are former managers and know how difficult it is and understand that the solution isn’t just to sack the manager.

“Gary Neville is very good at what he does in terms of explaining the game from a footballing perspective so if he were to come out and start calling for managerial sackings, that would be wrong, even if he was talking about Guardiola and Manchester City!”
