Old Trafford legend Bryan Robson says Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should ask Sir Alex Ferguson for more help in solving his problems at Manchester United.

Despite Solskjaer’s close relationship with Ferguson, the United manager is understood to have sought the advice of his former boss a handful of times since returning to the club three years ago.

Solskjaer is under pressure following a six-game losing streak in 12 games in all competitions, and Robson believes United have not used Ferguson’s immense experience enough since the 79-year-old Scotsman retired in 2013.

“As a manager, you shouldn’t be afraid of someone like Sir Alex,” Robson said. “I’d say, ‘Gaffer, can I get you out for something to eat? “

I wouldn’t mind if someone saw us at the restaurant. I would sit with him and pick things out. I am not afraid that I will miss my job. I would rather know your thoughts and ideas.

‘If you want to implement them, you do. If you don’t, do your thing. At the end of the day, as a manager, you are the one who is going to take the bullet, no one else. ‘

Robson believes Ferguson would welcome the opportunity to be more involved at United, even though his age and health problems following a brain hemorrhage in 2018 would preclude a more active role.

The former United and England captain said: ‘Since Sir Alex more or less retired, I think the only influence he had was that he helped the club get Cristiano Ronaldo back. Other than that, it doesn’t interfere.

If people ever ask him for advice, he will tell them what it is like. But he doesn’t interfere with anyone in the club because he knows that everyone is scrutinizing you.

The club could use it more. They could exploit that experience where I don’t think they have had in the last six or seven years.

Signing players, all that kind of thing. When you have the experience and the eye for a player that Sir Alex has, that would be a good area for him to get involved because he’s always going to have an opinion. ”

When he was manager of the troubled Middlesbrough in 2000, Robson agreed to temporarily hand over the reins to former England manager Terry Venables. Robson had been Venables’ number 2 at Euro 96, but he can’t imagine a similar scenario with Solskjaer and Sir Alex at Old Trafford.

“I don’t think Sir Alex will play that role again,” said the 64-year-old United ambassador, who returned to the club’s former training ground at The Cliff on Friday to oversee an under-18 training session.

‘He’s 80 this year. You’ve done enough of that in your life, so why would you want to feel that pressure again, especially with the health issues you’ve had?

“ He has remarkably recovered from that, but I can’t see that the coach wants that kind of responsibility.

“He has a lot of grandchildren that he spends time with, he loves horse racing and he loves going to see the game.”
