OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER’s future at Manchester United hinges on winning silver trophies.
This is the view of Red Devils champion and fellow Solskjaer Mikael Sylvester.
Norwegan’s time in the hot seat with United hangs in the balance after a string of shameful defeats.
Reports say he’ll get another match to save his job, but Sylvester believes prizes will be necessary if Ole wants to avoid the sack.
Sylvester said MyBettingSites: “Ole Gunnar Solskjær should win the cup this season.
“For the players, the manager, for the club, as in the DNA of Manchester United.
“They were very close to the Europa League last season and I’m sure they will use that as an added incentive this year to push them over the line.”
United were defeated by arch-rivals Liverpool last Sunday in a thrilling 5-0 match at Old Trafford.

In the aftermath there were reports of a fight in the locker room and speculation that Solskjaer was not up to the job.
United are described as a group of individuals rather than a team, but Sylvester claimed there was still hope at his old club.
He added: “The team has all the ingredients to win trophies and be successful, but it’s about showing up for the day and getting the job done.
“If they can have a season where they don’t have too many injuries and they can keep fit, they can give the team a good chance.”
