    PAUL SCHOLES ripped into Freddie Ljungberg for not wearing a suit during his first game in charge of Arsenal.

    The ex-Manchester United star said his decision to go for a grey jumper and blue open-neck shirt rather than tie and blazer shows he won't “be the right man” to replace Unai Emery.

    He told Premier League Productions: “You would think he'd be out in a suit to show a bit of proudness that he took the job.

    “To me that's a great start – shirt and tie to show some discipline.

    “I don't think he'll be the right man.”

    OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER says he is not thinking about the table despite sitting just six points clear of the relegation zone.

    After their 2-2 home draw with Aston Villa, ninth-placed Manchester United are closer to the bottom three than the Champions League places.

    United are eight points adrift of the battle for a European finish but the Norwegian claims there are bigger things to worry about.

    Solskjaer said: “It’s so tight. I have to make sure we get performances and results.

    “As a club we don’t like to be in this position but that’s the reality.

    “Wednesday we have a big game against Tottenham, Saturday against Manchester City, these boys are looking forward to every game.”

    This is now United’s worst start to a season for more than 30 years.

    Solskjaer added: “What I can say is we’ve had the lead in so many games and haven’t been able to win them, six or seven times and we should be better at turning them into wins.”

    IT IS Jose Mourinho's Tottenham up next for Manchester United this week.

    And United fans have demanded Ole Gunnar Solskjaer be sacked following their home draw against Aston Villa.

    Supporters appear to have snapped after Solskjaer's side limped to a 2-2 draw at Old Trafford against a side with the worst away record in the Premier League.

    Traditionally the clubs has always had supporter who have stood by their manager in times of trouble.

    But collecting just a point against struggling Villa, which leaves them down in ninth in the table, looks to have been the final straw for some.

    United's own Twitter account has been deluged with messages from fed up fans who believe the time has run out on club legend.

    Meanwhile, Mauricio Pochettino will reportedly have to pay back the £12.5million pay-off he received from Tottenham if he takes another Premier League job.

    The Argentine was this month axed by Spurs in a shock dismissal, and replaced by ex-Chelsea and Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho.

    But already Poch has been linked with a swift return back to England after Arsenal fired Unai Emery and United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer under increasing pressure at Old Trafford.

    However, The Express claim if the 47-year-old is to come back to the Premier League, then he will be forced to pay back the £12.5m dismissal fee he received.

    It is thanks to a clause inserted into his contract by Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy.

    Poch and his backroom staff are said to have pocketed around £20m after they left North London.
