Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has suggested that Jamie Carragher claiming Manchester United need a ‘better manager’ was an attempt to destabilise the club ahead of their crunch clash against Liverpool this weekend.
Speaking on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football, Carragher praised Solskjaer’s work in charge, but believes that United will need an improvement in the dugout in order to challenge for the biggest trophies.

‘No, it doesn’t affect me, but of course you’ve seen some of the comments once in a while,’ Solskjaer said. ‘I didn’t know what he was saying now but of course we got Liverpool on Sunday as well, so Jamie’s always looking at all these little things.
‘I’ve got my values, I’ve got my way of managing, and I believe in myself. As long as the club believes in me, I’m pretty sure that Jamie Carragher’s opinion is not going to change that.’
