Man Utd legend Yorke backs Solskjaer to end title-drought and lets rip at ‘pure jealousy’ towards his ex-team-mate

DWIGHT YORKE has let rip at the ‘pure jealousy’ towards Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Manchester United legend Yorke believes his Treble-winning team-mate has built a side capable of ending the club’s eight-year wait to become Premier League champions.

Ex-United stars Paul Scholes and Paul Ince have all criticised Solskjaer’s tactics this season while former Red Devils boss Louis van Gaal claimed last month his status as an ex-player saved his job.

Yorke, 49, told SunSport: “There is a lot of jealousy towards Ole from within the game. People don’t want to see him be successful for some reason.

“I have been looking at it and listening to people talk about the football club and it is pure jealousy.

“He did not do great at Cardiff and managed Molde then gets one of the top jobs in world football.

“People in football are begging for an opportunity and he has got this one, he’s won the jackpot.”

Solskjaer, who won SIX Premier League titles and a Champions League trophy in a glittering playing career at Old Trafford, came under fire after a poor start to the season.


But his side are top of the Premier League ahead of Sunday's FA Cup showdown with bitter rivals Liverpool.

Yorke added: “He has ignored all that talk, stuck to his beliefs and, let’s remember, used all his experience from his time at United as a player and working with the under-23s.

“He has grasped this and now look at where they are.”
