Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s record as Manchester United boss makes for seriously grim reading following the 2-0 defeat to Burnley.
The Red Devils suffered their latest embarrassment in front of their home supporters as Chris Wood and Jay Rodriguez gave the Clarets a comfortable victory at Old Trafford.
Solskjaer’s job could be under threat
There was a time when Manchester United drawing a blank at home to Burnley would’ve been unthinkable, but such displays have become the norm during the post-Sir Alex Ferguson era.
And the defeat tonight signified a new low for Solskjaer, who has now lost more Premier League games than he has won as permanent boss.
Since the Norwegian signed a three-year deal on March 28 last year, United have lost 12 Premier League games, drawn nine, and won just 11.
In those 32 games, Solskjaer has a 34% win ratio. To put that into context, David Moyes was sacked following 11 defeats in his 34 Premier League games in charge, leaving Old Trafford with a 50% win ratio.
Premier League defeats suffered by Man United managers since Sir Alex
David Moyes: 11
Louis van Gaal: 18
Jose Mourinho: 17
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: 13
Solskjaer’s fortunes have taken a dramatic turn after he became permanent boss. Before that, he won nine of his 13 games as interim boss, suffering just one defeat.
And for United legend Rio Ferdinand, the latest humiliation was too much to take.
He told BT Sport: Im sitting up here, if Im honest Im embarrassed. Its embarrassing to be here, not just about the team performing, but I dont see whats coming next.
You cant defend this. These young kids now in schools around the country are not gonna be wearing Man United shirts.
Theyre not gonna be wanting to come here and support Man United based on what youre seeing out there. Its just not gonna happen.
Fans are walking out after 84 minutes, its an embarrassment.”
