Coventry City manager Mark Robins believes that underfire Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer might need up to ten transfer windows to fix the numerous issues in his team.
Mark Robins said this in a chat with British radio station TalkSports as he said that the Norwegian football legend needs more time and that the club must stand by him.
According to him, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has a lot of work to do to fix the Manchester United squad and that he’ll require several transfer windows to achieve this.
Mark Robins is known as the savior of legendary Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson.
He scored the goal that saved Sir Alex Ferguson from being sacked during the 1989/90 season during an FA Cup game against Nottingham Forest.
Mark Robins scored the only goal of that game and that turned out to be what saved Sir Alex Ferguson who could have been sacked if he had lost that Nottingham Forest game.
Sir Alex Ferguson recovered from that lame period to become the greatest manager in the Premier League era.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer played under Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United and the current Red Devils boss could use that situation to turn his own situation around at the club.

Solskjaer Receives Huge Transfer Boost
Manchester United manager has received a massive boost in his desire to sign former World Cup finalist Ivan Rakitic as the player is reportedly set to end his stay at Camp Nou in January.
It is believed that the Red Devils are eagerly ready to snatch the Croatian midfielder from Camp Nou in the winter as Solskjaer wants to add new faces to his midfield formation.
After falling down the pecking order due to the arrival of Frenkie de Jong from Ajax in the summer, Rakitic is now set to dump the Blaugranas and he’s said to be considering the Theatre of Dreams as his next destination.
Spanish media MARCA, claimed that the Premier League side is likely to sign the 31-year-old midfielder ahead of Juventus who are also in the race for his signature.
The Serie A side were linked with the player’s services immediately after the 2018 World Cup in Russia but the Catalans were unconvinced with their offer.
Maurizio Sarri is reportedly keen on working with the aging midfielder and the Bianconeri are set to compete with United for his services in January.
Meanwhile, Solskjaer is sweating over David De Gea’s fitness level ahead of Liverpool clash after the goalie sustained an injury while in action for Spain on Tuesday.
He will hope to see the 28-year-old return to training as soon as possible or he will count on his second-choice goalkeeper Sergio Romero during the encounter.
Man United Legend Reveals One Player Who Will Certainly Perform Against Liverpool
Manchester United will play host to Liverpool on Sunday and former United player Darren Fletcher is tipping Paul Pogba to make the difference for the Old Trafford outfits during the game.
The Scottish international singled out the World Cup winner for praise as he labeled him the most influential player in Solskjaer’s young squad even if fans can’t stop criticizing him for his inconsistency since his return to the Old Trafford in 2016.
According to the Scotsman in an interview with Sky Sports, the 26-year-old playmaker has always delivered, judging by his goals and assists record for the team.
“If you look at the stats over a season – goals, assists, chances created, passes – he is Manchester United’s most dominant and influential player,” Fletcher told Sky Sports.
“Without a doubt, it is a big blow [that he has been missing], he is a leader, a World Cup winner. His performances get scrutinized to the level where it is a little bit unfair.”
He believes that the Old Trafford Faithfuls expect too much from him which is one of the reasons why he’s under-appreciated by the fans.
“People probably expect too much from him but if you look at the stats he always delivers and makes things happen.
“That’s probably where the criticism comes because he always tries things. Great Manchester United players have always done that, they’ve never gone simple or safe. Paul is maybe trying a little bit too hard.” he concluded.
Just like Fletcher had spoken, Pogba’s return will definitely be a major boost to United’s chance of beating their longtime rivals on Sunday because his creativity will be largely needed by the team.
See Why Man United Fans Are Close To Getting Their Top Request
Manchester United under-fire manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer saw his team record their worst start in the club’s history when they were beaten 1-0 by Newcastle before the international break and fans are asking for the manager’s resignation letter.
Despite the huge call from the Red Devils Faithfuls on Social media, the club’s hierarchy has always shown support for the Norwegian tactician.
However, that could change anytime soon as a report, via TuttoSport, revealed that the Glazers are very close to sealing a deal with Massimiliano Allegri over the possibility of replacing Solskjaer at Old Trafford.
The Italian media outlet claimed that the former Juventus manager is set to return to football after being without a club since his departure from the Turin outfits in the summer, and the Theatre of Dreams could be his next destination.
However, it is believed that the outcome of Sunday’s clash between United and Liverpool will determine Solskjaer’s fate whether he will remain at the helm of affairs or not.
It is equally undetermined if Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino is finally out of the race for the job despite being tagged as the ‘best man’ for the club’s managerial position by many pundits and soccer enthusiasts.
Three Reasons Why Man United Could Pull Out Of Mandzukic’s Deal Revealed
It’s obvious that United need more firepower at the final third of the pitch and they are hugely linked with two strikers — Juventus forward Mario Mandzukic and Lyon’s Moussa Dembele.
With reports from Old Trafford, the Red Devils are closer to reaching an agreement with Juventus for the Croatian star as they have reportedly sealed a £10m deal with the Turin outfits.
But is the 33-year-old the best solution to United’s goalscoring problem? Here is our answer to the question and why we believe Solskjaer shouldn’t make Mandzukic his prime target.
1. He’s Not Getting Younger
Judging by his age, the 33-year-old is far from being a long-term project at Old Trafford. Hence, he shouldn’t be the main target for the club. He might find it difficult to succeed at Old Trafford due to the physical nature of the League.
2. His Current Inactive Role At Juventus
Mandzukic hasn’t played a single match for both club and country this season, he will need some time to hit the ground running at Old Trafford.
What United currently need is a player who will make an impact as soon as he’s signed into the club if they must save their season.
3. Huge Salary Demand
If the report from Italy is something to lean on, the player will become United’s fourth highest paid player as he wants £200k as weekly wages. This appears too much for a 33-year-old player who appears to have past his prime.
Man Utd Open Talks With Solskjaer’s Replacement
Manchester United have reportedly opened talks with Italian tactician Massimiliano Allegri over the managerial job at Old Trafford.
This is according to the latest reports coming out of the media in the European nation of Italy.
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is under serious pressure to deliver results at Old Trafford and there has been transfer speculations over his job with the likes of Allegri linked as the replacement for him if the Red Devils decide to sack their current boss.
According to the specific report from popular Italian news outlet Tuttosport, Maximiliano Allegri has opened talks with Premier League giants Manchester United over the possibility of replacing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as their manager.
Allegri is not the only one linked with the managerial job at Manchester United.
Others like Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino and RB Leipzig manager Julian Nagelsmann have also been linked with Manchester United.
Maximiliano Allegri left Italian Serie A giants Juventus in the summer after he led the Old Lady to another league title.
He won five successive Italian Serie A titles as the Juventus manager.
The Italians have won eight league titles in a row and are on course for Serie A title number nine.
