Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola is certain that his Manchester United counterpart Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is the right man for the Red Devils job.

Guardiola talked about Solskjaer who’s under pressure following the Red Devils’ poor run of form in recent weeks ahead of his first league meeting with him.

During his pre-match press conference before the Manchester Derby clash at Old Trafford, Guardiola told reporters that being a manager can be a lonely road before adding that Solskjaer will lead Manchester United out of their present state.

Solskjaer and Manchester United have not had the best of months following a run of six defeats in eight games including the 4-0 thumping at the hands of Everton at the weekend.

Everton thrashed Manchester United 4-0 in their Premier League meeting on Sunday afternoon to dent their hopes of making the Champions League next season.

Manchester United will have to finish the season in the first four places on the league table to qualify for the Champions League next season.

The Red Devils trail the top four places by three points ahead of their league meeting with champions Manchester City who are bidding to retain their title.

Manchester City have to win the game to secure top spot ahead of Liverpool.
