Manchester United have had a tough time this season under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who has come under pressure as a result while Rivaldo has no sympathy for the manager
Rivaldo has admitted he has no sympathy for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer due to the A-listers in his Manchester United squad.
The Red Devils face Liverpool this Sunday in a crucial clash at Old Trafford for both sides.
The pressure is on Solskjaer after a 4-2 loss to Leicester in the Premier League last week.
That followed some poor results prior to the international break including defeats to Aston Villa and Young Boys.
While the United coach may have bought some more time after a 3-2 win over Atalanta in the Champions League, despite the club being 2-0 down and needing Cristiano Ronaldo to score a late winner to land all three points.
Solskjaer has been in tough spots before in charge of the Red Devils and his side have usually responded.
With Liverpool on fire in front of goal, some United fans are nervous about the fact they will face Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane in top form.
But Brazil legend RIvaldo has no sympathy for the Old Trafford outfit because of the incredible players at Solskjaer’s disposal.

He told Betfair: “It’s not been a great start of season for Manchester United and their manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer really needs to improve things quickly.
“They have an incredible squad. With Cristiano’s Ronaldo ambition and personality always demanding more from his teammates, things can still work.
“But the Norwegian coach must do a better job to find the right way to put together an effective team and mount a great campaign.
Meanwhile, Solskjaer has admitted he wants his United side to emulate Liverpool going forward.
“It’s going to take everything to get a result against one of the best teams in Europe and the world,” he said.
“And Liverpool are one of those. They are one of the teams we are trying to chase because what they have done in the last four years is something we are striving towards and go past them.
“We did end up above them last season, but they had a very bad spell of injuries and now they are back to their best.”
