Watford boss Claudio Ranieri has urged Manchester United to be patient with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, citing Sir Alex Ferguson’s slow start to life at Old Trafford as an example of how it can pay off.

Solskjaer’s United side are traveling to Vicarage Road tomorrow and he is under pressure to get a result following one win in his last six Premier League games.

Ranieri, however, has called for United to give time to Solskjaer, believing he is the right man to turn things around at Old Trafford.

The Italian pointed out how Sir Alex was appointed by the club in 1986, but he did not win his first trophy until 1990.

“I think every manager has his philosophy,” said Ranieri. “But I remember also when Sir Alex Ferguson arrived in Manchester, three years? How long was it for him [to win a trophy]?

“Give time to Solskjaer. I am confident with him, he just has to continue this job.

“But look, Solskjaer is doing very well; of course, Manchester United want to win every time. And they want to come back to the Sir Alex Ferguson era, that’s normal.

“But the pressure is a positive pressure, for him and for everyone working in Manchester.”
