Watford head coach Claudio Ranieri believes that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is doing a good job at Manchester United, despite the pressure he is under at Old Trafford.

Fans and pundits have called for the Norwegian to be sacked in recent weeks after picking up just one win from their last six matches.

However, Ranieri claims that he is still in a positive situation, but that the expectation at Man United is not the same as at other clubs.

“Look, Solskjaer is doing very well; of course, Manchester United want to win every time,” said the Italian.

“And they want to come back to the Alex Ferguson era, that’s normal.

“But the pressure is a positive pressure, for him and for everyone working in Manchester.”

Helping Solskjaer try and turn things around at Old Trafford is Cristiano Ronaldo, now in his second Manchester United stint.

Ronaldo has already starred on his United return, though the 36-year-old’s presence has create several wider tactical headaches for the United coaching staff.

Ranieri insisted, though, that no manager would turn down Ronaldo’s services, joking that he would welcome the Portugal forward with open arms.

Asked if having Ronaldo in a squad would cause any concerns, Ranieri replied: “Oh no, no, no: give me Cristiano, please! It’s no problem for me, I’d leave him to play all the minutes!

“Cristiano is one of the best players in the world, and he’s good for football, because I think a lot of young boys are looking at him and the best players in the world and it’s a good attraction for football.”
