Former Scotland international, Craig Burley, has blasted Manchester United’s decision to name Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as their permanent manager.

Burley, speaking after United’s 2-1 defeat to Wolves on Tuesday, described it as a “crazy, crazy decision”, after the Red Devils’ third defeat in four games.

Scott McTominay handed United the lead, only for Diogo Jota and Chris Smalling’s own goal to hand Nuno Espirito Santo’s men victory.

“The decision to give Solskjaer the job full-time, I think it’s a crazy, crazy decision, particularly now before the end of the season.

“I’m not just saying this now after that game, because I’ve said it before.

“Manchester United are one of the biggest clubs in the world and, on the evidence of what we’ve seen recently, they need a massive rebuilding job to be fighting back with Liverpool and Man City.

“To give the job to someone who is so inexperienced, with a so-so managerial record become he arrived, that’s not got ‘long-term strategy’ written all over it to me, that’s got ‘sentimental claptrap to appease fans’ written all over it.

“Manchester United have got shareholders and should have a longer-term, more clinical view of what the strategy is, rather than, ‘Oh, Ole has done great,” Burley said on talkSPORT’s The Sports Bar.
