Usain Bolt fears Manchester United lack the winning mentality that made the club what it is today, amid growing pressure on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Cristiano Ronaldo has come to his manager’s rescue several times this season and the Olympics legend believes there is an over reliance on the Portuguese striker. The Red Devils have not won a match that Ronaldo has not scored in since he joined.

“We are going to struggle. Cristiano [Ronaldo] has saved us every game, “Bolt told The National. “One guy has to do all that work.

“We have not played good football in so long. It is so relaxed. We pass so slowly. When Alex Ferguson was manager, we had to win because he would demand you win.”

Rumours have not gone away regarding Solskjaer’s future and Leicester’s Brendan Rodgers is the latest to be linked with the Old Trafford hotseat.

However, United fan Bolt wanted new Tottenham boss Antonio Conte to take over before his move to North London - and he now expects Spurs to improve significantly.

“I wanted Conte,” the Jamaican noted. “He is going to do so well at Spurs. He is going to get them organised.

“He has been at Chelsea – he won a title. He’s been at Inter Milan – he’s won a title. He’s been at Juve – he’s won a title.

“Everywhere he goes, he structures the team so well. In January, he is probably going to get one or two players, then at the end of the season he is probably going to find proper players and bring them in.”
