Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is under real pressure right now.
The Manchester United manager is facing the axe as his side crashed out the Champions League on Tuesday night as they lost to RB Leipzig.
Despite only needing a draw in Germany to reach the knockout rounds, United were 2-0 down inside the first 15 minutes with Leipzig adding a third on the 69-minute mark.
Is time running out for Ole at Old Trafford?
Even though the Red Devils netted twice in the final ten minutes to make the scoreline appear more palatable, there is no getting away from the fact this was a shocking performance from United.
And it means they are out the Champions League for another season – an outcome that has angered the Old Trafford faithful.
A host of United supporters phoned into talkSPORT after the European defeat to express their fury at Solskjaer, and Omar the Red Devil was no different.
And he laid into Ole, insisting he is not this positive, free-flowing manager people think but a negative and pragmatic coach who is just ‘Jose Mourinho with a smile’.

Incredibly, he even said the only reason Solskjaer was hired was because of the famous Champions League final winner he scored against Bayern Munich in 1999!
Lets not beat around the bush, began Omar. He got the job because he stuck his toe out in 1999.
He kept [his job] longer because he stuck his toe out in 1999.
If any other manager had done what hes done with these shambolic performances he set up for a 0-0 draw today! No one can tell me nothing; he set up for a 0-0 draw or to nick it on the counter.
To me, and Ive been watching football for a long time and saying this to all my family, he is Jose Mourinho with a smile.

What I mean by that is his mentality of football; he is a very pragmatic manager, but people think he is some free-flowing manager. Hes actually not.
When stuff hits the fans he turns to negativity and two defensive midfielders.
When I say Jose with a smile, what I mean by that is his mentality in setting up games is similar to Jose but the difference is he smiles and has good vibes.
Thats all the difference there is!
