Taking to Twitter to share her opinion, the UFC superstar wrote: ‘The problem at United is that there are only a ton of young guys talking to each other. Companions.

‘You need someone above the group chat to take the helm. Ole was on the bench when [Cristiano] Ronaldo played. A companion. Is not sufficient. He loves and respects Ole to the fullest, but his role needs to be reorganized (sic). My opinion.’

Alluding to the fact that Solskjaer and his talisman Ronaldo played together during their respective stints at United, McGregor appears to be urging the continuing club to be ruthless and hire a new manager, one with a fresh mind.

The outspoken fighter has previously opened up about his reasons for supporting United and praised Solskjaer.

Speaking during a question and answer session with FIFA.com, via United Official WebsiteMcGregor said: “I was more of a player than an observer back then, but Manchester United were my team.”

He continued, adding: ‘I was attracted to the success and the winning mentality of the club and the people surrounded by United. Irish legends like Denis Irwin and Roy Keane were dedicated to their craft and had that winning mentality.

“Keane was one of the best midfielders European football has seen. The opponents would be mentally beaten before they had even stepped onto the field to face him. ”

When asked about Solskjaer, he said: ‘Ole Gunnar is a special man! I think he has done an incredible job with United. They have to give you the job permanently.

“You can feel the pride and passion he has for the club and its history, and see the players honored to wear the Red Devils crest underneath.

It really has the players acting. I think the same as a proud Irishman representing my home country, Ireland. ”

However, it has since been revealed that Solskjaer’s stars are no longer fully behind their coach, with questions about his tactical acumen and ability to compete alongside players like Pep Guardiola, Jurgen Klopp and Thomas Tuchel.

Despite this, Solskjaer has reportedly received the endorsement of the legendary boss, and his former mentor, Sir Alex Ferguson and Executive Vice President Ed Woodward, as he continues to hold on to his job.
