Darren Gough has warned Ole Gunnar Solskjaer he must start winning trophies with Manchester United.
And the Norwegian has got off to a fantastic start to this season’s Champions League campaign with a wonderful 2-1 win over PSG.
Marcus Rashford fired United to another memorable victory in Paris as Solskjaer’s side started their European journey with a bang.
After a season away from European football’s top table, the Red Devils returned to action at the Parc des Princes, where just 19 months ago they secured one of their greatest ever comebacks in this competition.
Rashford fired home the late winner that night and again sealed a last-gasp United triumph in the French capital, where last season’s finalists PSG were deservedly overcome 2-1 in Tuesday’s Group H opener.
Yet Goughie believes the Red Devils need to start picking up silverware before they can fully consider themselves back to their best.
The talkSPORT host said on Drive: “If he doesn’t deliver this year – and I’m sick of hearing this – but all this ‘he needs five years’ and ‘he’s building for the future’…
“You don’t get five years!
“This is Manchester United; he has to deliver year in, year out and he has to start winning things.
“He can’t just keep going there and being a passenger and not winning trophies – [Louis] Van Gaal won trophies, [Jose] Mourinho won trophies.
“Solskjaer has to win trophies. Just because you’re an ex-player doesn’t mean you get a free pass.”
