Talking to The Telegraph, Carragher reflected on how former players fared as they transitioned to managerial roles.
He touched on Mikel Arteta’s impact at Arsenal and Frank Lampard’s role at Chelsea before talking about Solskjaer’s position at Manchester United.
He said: ‘There will be those who will argue that Arteta should be included in the group alongside Lampard, Pirlo and Solskjaer as a notable former player struggling to prove that he is an elite coach in the club where he played.
‘There have been times when he has seemed to be under intense pressure and a couple of games to lose faith, if not his board, certainly the Arsenal fans.

But I have never seen Arteta in the same way as those others. Yes, he is a former Arsenal player, but with respect he is not a legend like the other three were for Chelsea, United and Juventus.
“ For me, when Arteta was offered the position at Arsenal, his connection with the club was secondary to that of mentoring Guardiola at Manchester City.
“First of all, he is seen as a modern coach who understands how the game is evolving, rather than someone steeped in Arsenal tradition.
“ That is more important than any emotional bond with a former player because Arteta is constantly judged solely on the quality of his work, unlike Solskjaer, who, and I say this with the utmost respect, has been given more time than he has been. others. He has been given results and performances because he is very loved by the fans. ‘
