Sheringham admits Solskjaer afforded 'protection' from ex-Man Utd teammates

Teddy Sheringham has admitted Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is afforded 'protection' by his old Manchester United teammates.

The likes of Gary Neville and Paul Scholes have defended Solskjaer despite the recent 5-0 loss to Liverpool.

And another former Red Devils star in Sheringham believes the Norwegian gets a "fair deal" in the media.

Speaking to 888Sport, Sheringham said:"Does Ole get a fair deal?

"Yes, he gets a very fair deal.

"You're managing Manchester United and you've stayed in the job for a long time and you haven't won anything.

"Depending on how you look at it, he's had a very fair deal to still be in a job.

"It does look like he's been getting the club to progress, as a team, but that has faltered at the start of this season and that's why so many have question marks against him.

"There has been a lot of protection for Ole from his former teammates and I've been just the same but he's not stupid and he knows that the noose is tightening.

"You just hope that it doesn't happen and he finds a way out. He'll certainly keep fighting because he's a winner after all."
