Saunders thinks the Norwegian might suffer the same fate as his predecessors if he does not get rid of troublemakers.
When asked on talkSPORT whether the Norwegian would see out the season, he replied: “I don't think he will.
“I just think he's walked into a mess and he's got such a difficult job.
“These players, with one or two exceptions, have got three managers the sack.
“These players have just got Mourinho the sack and if Solskjaer doesn't get his own players on the pitch they'll get him the sack, and he knows that.
“He knows if he keeps on with these players and doesn't change the personnel, he'll get sacked.
“I think he needs some help, you've got to write some cheques and get the job done, get the people you want out the building out as quick as possible."
