& # 39; Currently he is bad for Manchester United, & # 39; told Parker, who played for the club from 1991-1996, Sportsmail
& # 39; he brings too much negativity to the club. Its quality is unbelievable, but on average it is about one out of 10, that's how bad it has been.
"I think they should change him now, I now see a comeback as very, very difficult. He has had a bad fit all the time.
& # 39; If you now see Lukaku scoring many goals, he had to leave because he was affecting the club and the dressing room – it was the right decision.
& # 39; Pogba & # 39; s agent says he sees Juventus as his home. He left his house for a package holiday, the package was the big package and now he wants to come back – so it seems. & # 39;
Despite two wins in the Premier League since the winter break, United are three points outside the top four in what has been a topsy-turvy season to date.

& # 39; There have been many more lowlights than highlights, & # 39; Parker continued as he spoke half of the Racing Post .
"I put it down to the unstable running of the football club. Everything from above is enormously negative, which is reflected on the field.
"They have signed the wrong players, not as football players but as men, in terms of mentality. Prior to the acquisition by Ole Gunnar, there were a number of terrible signings. & # 39;
On Solskjaer, however, Parker believes that the Norwegian deserves a chance to rebuild in the short term, and he cannot understand why Chelsea manager Frank Lampard does not receive the same amount of criticism as his United counterpart.
& # 39; The moment you bring in someone who is very inexperienced, they are absolutely prosecuted & # 39 ;, Parker said.Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has criticism, but his side is only three points away from the top four
For Ole Gunnar, everything must be right. He has the largest backpack in the world.
& # 39; Let him do this work with the tools he has. When he came in, the club was in a bad state. There were many scars there from the previous regime and he built bridges that were broken from the previous manager [Jose Mourinho].
& # 39; Frank at Chelsea can say he uses young players and nobody wants to close the door on him, it's really strange. & # 39;

I am a free citizen who can think and express my thoughts. Until now I was perhaps too nice to him. Solskjaer just has to remember things he said to Paul in the summer.
& # 39; I think Solskjaer can be frustrated for several reasons and confuse some things. I think Solskjaer should have other concerns. At least if I were him, I'd do it. & # 39;
Solskjaer said in response after his party defeated Chelsea 2-0 at Stamford Bridge: & # 39; I don't have to comment on Mino and what he says, I will probably talk to him myself.
& # 39; The media, you can't control that, someone has a voice, you can have your opinion. There are things said about us that you want to comment on, but it's smarter that you don't. Paul and Mino have their conversations, it's great. & # 39;
