Manchester United legend, Sir Bobby Charlton, has weighed-in with his tuppenceworth to the debate about whether or not team manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should be given more time to turn things around at Old Trafford, after the Red Devils' worst start to a season for thirty years got worse on Sunday at Newcastle.

A lacklustre United were beaten 1-0 by the Magpies, and Charlton, who will be 82 on Friday, wasn't happy. He said:

"What a bloody disgrace! Is that the best he can manage? I've never seen such a pathetic bunch of pansies running around in the famous red shirts!"

Sir Charlton, who scored 49 times for England, said:

"That's what you get for putting your trust in a Norwegian."

Charlton, who scored twice in United's 4-1 European Cup final demolition of Benfica in 1968, raged:

"He took Cardiff City down in 2014, and now the bugger's after doing it here! Well, we'll just have to see about that!"

And Sir Bobby wasn't short of advice on who the Norwegian's successor should be:

"Sir Alex, of course. Or Sir Alf. Or Sir Matt. Or, if he won't do it, that Portuguese fella. He's not bad. Or Arsehole Wenger. Or our Jack."
