Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said that his struggling side will not be a ‘quick fix’.

The Red Devils have been extremely under-par throughout the campaign, sitting fifth in the Premier League table and six points adrift of Chelsea following the shock defeat to Burnley at the weekend.

Solskjaer came under extreme criticism following the defeat but despite calls for his sacking at the club, the Norwegian has said that the team’s form is not going to improve overnight.

He said: “For me, we do have a way of doing things.

“Of course you can see other teams have done well. Jurgen [Klopp] spent four years building his team and they’re doing well now. I’ve said it so many time, it’s not going to be a quick fix.

“It’s not going to be eight or 10 players in, in one transfer window. We’ve had one proper transfer window in the summer, because the January ones are difficult. But we are trying to do something now.”

Following their sixth-place finish under Solskjaer in the Premier League this season, they will be hoping to improve on that and make their return to the UEFA Champions League. The Red Devils currently sit at odds of 11/2 with Betfair to finish in the Premier League top four this season.
