Amidst increasing calls in some quarters for his sack, former Manchester United ace Park Ji-sung says embattled

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should be allowed till the end of the season.

Solskjaer is under immense pressure ahead of United’s trip to Watford after his side’s humiliating home defeats to bitter rivals Liverpool and Manchester City.

The Red Devils sit in sixth in the Premier League after winning just one of their last five league games and the likes of Zinedine Zidane and Brendan Rodgers are already being touted as candidates to replace the Norwegian.

But ex-winger Park believes the manager deserves praise for restoring the ‘spirit’ to Old Trafford and should be given until the end of the season to fight for his job.

‘It’s been three years for Solskjaer as a manager and I believe that this will be the defining season for him, in terms of whether he continues at the club,’ Park told Goal.

‘I think that he deserves credit for what he’s done at United, and deserves to fight [for his job] until the end of the season, but he needs to show he can continue after that.

‘He did well to bring the old United spirit and culture back to us.

‘Therefore, I believe we should wait until the end of this season and then see. But if he can’t show [he’s good enough], it will be difficult for him to continue.’

But if a vacancy does open, Park has backed United legend Wayne Rooney to take charge.

The former forward has only just embarked on his coaching career and is having a tough start to managerial life at Derby County.

Derby face almost-certain relegation after being smacked with a 21-point penalty for financial breaches and sit rock bottom on minus three points.

But his former team-mate tipped the Rams boss to return to the Old Trafford dugout.

‘I believe Wayne can make it,’ Park said. ‘He had great experiences from his very young age and he also had many difficult moments in his career that he overcame eventually.

‘For sure, he has great leadership skills as well. So, I believe he can be United’s manager in the future.’
