Danny Mills has criticised the managerial ability of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The Manchester United boss has helped steady the ship at Old Trafford following the turbulent tenure of Jose Mourinho, and helped guide them back into the Champions League with a third place finish.

However, three semi-final cup defeats and a poor start to the new Premier League season has piled pressure on the shoulders of the Norwegian, with many questioning his position at the club.

Former England defender Mills has now been asked which current boss would hypothetically have what it takes to replace Marcelo Bielsa should he leave Elland Road, and Solskjaer was well down the list.

While on talkSPORT, Mills said: "What can Manchester United do right now to change what they're doing on the pitch? The only thing you can do is change the manager.

"Let's say Leeds lose their manager right now, [Marcelo] Bielsa goes, he's had enough, he walks out.

"Okay, who do I want to replace him? You start looking at the names and you go: '[Jose] Mourinho, yes, Pep [Guardiola] yes, [Jurgen] Klopp, yes, [Carlo] Ancelotti, yep, Brendan Rodgers, yep, David Moyes, probably, Frank Lampard, yes, [Mikel] Arteta, yes'.

"And then you start to think about Ole Gunnar Solskjaer - not convinced.

"He's half way down the list at least and that's without the likes of [Mauricio] Pochettino coming into the mix, people who are out of a job right now.

"So the only thing you can change at Manchester United to improve them and improve the mentality, is the manager.

"He's not necessarily a bad coach but he's inexperienced at this level and he looks out of his depth at times."

Solskjaer took the blame for his team selection after the 6-1 defeat to Tottenham before the international break - and stated that it was his worst day of his coaching career.

He said: “I hold my hand up, it is my fault. It’s very embarrassing, it hurt all the players, it hurts me as the manager. It’s my worst day ever.

“It is the worst day of my career as Manchester United manager and the worst day for all of them as United players [but] it is not the worst day in Manchester United history, we have bounced back before.

“To explain now is quite difficult. We have been beaten 6-1 at home by a very good side but we have contributed a lot to our own downfall.”
