Pep Guardiola believes under-pressure Solskjaer doesn’t need his support.
Manchester United finished third in their Champions League despite having an impressive start to the competition.
The Norwegian manager is expected to be the next Premier League manager to be sacked.
This is not the first time that Solskjaer has come under scrutiny but he always managed to bounce back.
United are one point and one place ahead of City in the Premier League table.
Guardiola thinks that Solskjaer doesn’t need his sympathy and he expects Solskjaer is well aware of the fickle nature of the job now.
“We know it,” he said. “That’s why we get a lot of salary, for these situations.
“It’s important to know the value of Solskjaer is there. There is no doubt about this.
“I don’t have to give him support because he’s strong enough, he knows how it works in this job. When we win we are a genius and when we lose we have to be sacked.
“It happens in United and all the clubs around the world. It is the reality.”
