You restored soul to the club’

MANCHESTER UNITED legend Gary Neville has led tributes to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after the Norwegian’s sacking was announced this morning.

The pundit took to Twitter to thank his former teammate for his time at Old Trafford and suggested that Solskjaer changed the club for the better.

Neville, 46, said: “Thank you Ole. You did us proud. The last two months were tough but before that you restored some soul into the club.”

The former Man Utd captain has been heavily criticised for refusing to condemn his old teammate, despite the club losing seven of their last 13 in all competitions.

He refused to call for Solskjaer to be sacked and described it as ‘heartbreaking’ to watch him struggle to get a tune out of his superstar squad.

United legend Norman Whiteside also took to Twitter to thank Solskjaer, but was less sentimental in his wording than Neville.

Whiteside, 56, said: “Thanks for trying Ole just not to be :(“.

The Northern Irishman came through the United academy and made 206 appearances for the club across a seven year spell between 1982-89.


Whiteside still works at the corporate hospitality department at Old Trafford.
