OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER has been told he needs back-up from backroom if he is going to survive as Manchester United manager.

The warning comes from Sam Allardyce, who insists that without the right men by his side he would never have been a success.

Fade to grey – Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s hair has changed colour as pressure is mounting on him at Man Utd, according to Sam Allardyce
Ex-manager Sam Allardyce says he’s surprised he’s not gone totally grey himself

Big Sam is not sure if Solskjaer can keep living with the pressure of staying in charge at Old Trafford.

Certainly not without the right help from coaches Mike Phelan, Michael Carrick and Kieran McKenna.

Veteran Allardyce, 67, has seen Solskjaer go grey with stress in the three years since he replaced Jose Mourinho.

That strain has only increased following humiliating defeats to Liverpool and Manchester City.

Allardyce said: “You just have to look at his hair. Ole can only get through it with his staff and then by putting the players on the right track.

“Your staff need to be right on top of their game. We get all the criticism and all the praise as managers, but if you haven’t got the right staff… the success I had, I couldn’t have done it without my staff.

“I can’t believe I’ve still not got a total silver fox. People think I dye mine, but I don’t. I should have been a silver fox about 10 years ago.

“My advice to Ole is I would shut everything down from the inside, which is almost an impossible task.

“But to focus internally and keep the outside influences away from everybody.

“Focus and really find a way out of it with your staff. Ole’s staff are never more important than they are now.

“Ole can only get through it with his staff and then by putting the players on the right track. You need your staff need to be right on top of their game.”

Allardyce will be back as a boss at Bolton on Sunday in charge of an all – star team for a charity match in aid of MND at the UniBol Stadium on Sunday.

He took Wanderers into the Prem in 2001 and eleven years restored West Ham’s place there.

The Hammers are now flying high under David Moyes – who lasted just 10 months as boss of United and looked like he had lost his way after being sacked.

‘LOOK AT MOYESIE’

Big Sam uses the Scot as an example of what can be achieved even if things go horribly wrong at Old Trafford.

He says: “If you don’t come back better, you don’t stay in it.

“Look at Moyesie.

“Took over at Sunderland from me after a really bad time at Man United and in Spain, had a terrible time after I left. “Looked like ‘wow, where’s Moyesie going to go now?’.

“Had a brief spell at West Ham, went back again and now has a great team and seems to be a much, much better manager than he ever was – and he was a good manager before.

“That can happen, if you come back more able and more capable, then you stay in the game a long time.”
