Robin van Persie insists Solskjaer should be given time at Manchester United

Former Manchester United star Robin van Persie has said that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should be afforded with sufficient time in the managerial role before judging his future. The Norwegian initially joined the Red Devils on an interim basis in December but he was handed with the permanent job in March after drastically changing the club’s fortunes.
