Manchester United went on their first defeat since Ole Gunnar Solskjær got the job on a temporary basis at the end of December, when they lost against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League earlier this week.
Solskjærs wonderful start in managerstolen to one of the world's biggest football clubs has made him one of the most discussed people in football, not only in Norway, but also in the rest of the world.
Also in England is the debate about Solskjær deserves the job on a permanent basis. After Solskjærs first loss, was his jobbkandidatur, naturally enough, a natural debattema for English fotballeksperter.
Sjefsfotballskribent in the Independent, Miguel Delaney, is critical to the booty Solskjær did when he got damage on Rashford and Martial against PSG. Delaney says he asked himself why the Norwegian chose not Lukaku in place of one of the two, and warns that the enthusiasm for Solskjærs job can fordufte with some weak results over the next few weeks.
no Matter how well he did in the first two months, it will be forgotten if he is stumbling and struggling a bit now. You can say that it is only now the real job begins. The psychological factor of the employment had was so great, and given the change compared with ^ the academic degree awarded, it will now smooth out a little. We will see what it really Solskjær stands for, " says Delaney.
It said fotballjournalisten on Sky Sports weekly debattpanel the Sunday Supplement, who took up the subject of Solskjær in the day. Panelprogrammet consists each week of the selected fotballskribenter from the different storavisene in the country.
Solskjær was also clear that the team had not had the same level inside as the PSG, especially in the second half of the settlement at Old Trafford.
today we were not at that level, this is a level up from what we are accustomed to. We had a fantastic number of. We came into this match with confidence and good form, but they are on a higher level. They have quality from the goalkeeper to the tip. There is a reason they are one of the favorites in the Champions League. It is the level we must aim at, " said Solskjær.What is he trying to tell us without saying it? - In the pole position
John Cross, fotballsjefskribent in the Mirror, is clear that the Norwegian has made a good effort so far, even if the team is not yet at the top.
United is definitely still only in the development stage. Solskjær has made a big difference, but it (the loss, journ.anm.) showed just how right the club has when they are waiting to make the decision.
Cross believes the Norwegian is still the leading candidate for the job, even if he believes that the club has not yet made a decision.
Just now Solskjær definitely in pole position. It is difficult to imagine that someone with larger profile could come in and have the same impact in so short a time, " says Cross.
Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger also worked as an expert when Manchester United met the PSG. Also the legendary French manager points out that nordmannens candidacy will be strengthened if he shows that he can cope with disappointments.

The last panel on Sunday was Martin Samuel, who is sjefsportsskribent in the Daily Mail. Samuel believes that it is wrong of people to look at Solskjærs time in Cardiff when considering him for the Manchester United job, and shows among other things, the 45-åringens former boss.
- It is allowed to be better. Look at Joachim Löws trenerkarriere before he became national team manager in Germany. Sir Alex Ferguson was also not flawless in Scotland before he had great success with Aberdeen. It is allowed to fail. He may have grown on the Cardiff experience, and it is also allowed to lose against a better team, the PSG was just better, " says Samuel.
Several storkamper are in fact in the works for the Manchester-made. Samuel believes, however, that Manchester United's upcoming matches does not necessarily have to be the tongue on the balance of Solskjærs future in managersetet at Old Trafford.
Now, they have Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester City the next time. It will be a great test, but you can't ignore what Solskjær has already been to, concludes Samuel.So believe Wenger that Solskjær can get the United job
