Manchester United are making the wrong decision in putting their trust in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to deliver the Premier League title, according to Simon Jordan. Solskjaer’s current deal expires in 2022 but reports emerged last week that an agreement had been made on a new contract for the Norwegian coach.
It is claimed that Solskjaer will be given an extension on his contract as well as being given a bumper pay rise.
It’s seen as reward for United’s good form over the past 12 months which has seen them climb up to second in the Premier League table.
They’re also in a good position to win either the Europa League or FA Cup this season for Solskjaer’s first piece of silverware as United boss.
Manchester City may be the runaway leaders in the Premier League with Liverpool enduring a torrid campaign, but United have proven to be the second-best team this season.

They’ve lost just once in the top flight since their 1-0 defeat to Arsenal back at the start of November.
It will also be the first time since Sir Alex Ferguson left that United qualify for the Champions League for two consecutive season as long as they finish inside the top four.
The club appear to be heading in the right direction under Solskjaer with Bruno Fernandes’ success since his move from Sporting Lisbon playing a huge role.
But former Crystal Palace owner Jordan has questioned whether trusting Solskjaer to be the man to win the Premier League is the right step.
“Take Bruno Fernandes out of that side and tell me how good they are,” he said on talkSPORT.
When pointed towards Shaw’s impressive form this season, Jordan added: “It doesn’t necessarily mean that they are going to win anything under this manager.
“With due respect, Luke Shaw’s progression and redemption was – in part – started by the hard kick up the jacksy that he thoroughly needed and now he’s back.
“Now, of course, Solskjaer can claim that as a success.”
“The youth development policy has nothing to do with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. He’s the beneficiary of it.
“I don’t have any agenda against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. I think he’s a very decent manager.
“Ask me the question, ‘is he a decent manager?’ Yes. Ask me the question, ‘is he going to win the league for Manchester United?’ I will say no.
“I don’t think so, unless we see a rapid decline from those that are above him, I don’t think he’ll get there by his own natural volition.”
