Jamie O’Hara has urged Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to be more honest with Anthony Martial amid Thomas Tuchel’s admission over Saul Niguez.
The Spaniard joined Chelsea on deadline day this summer, arriving on-loan from Atletico Madrid.
He had a poor start to his career at Stamford Bridge, having turned in a disappointing display on debut against Aston Villa before being substituted at half-time.
The German said: “It was a hard decision, but he [Saul] was struggling, and I take the responsibility for that.
“I put him into a difficult match after a national break, and it was hard to adapt to the physicality and in general for him, intensity and high pressing.”
has only appeared once since his first outing as a Blue, that second outing coming ironically once against Aston Villa as Tuchel’s men edged past their Premier League rivals in the Carabao Cup via a penalty shootout.
Meanwhile, Anthony Martial also struggled during his display in Manchester United’s League Cup defeat to West Ham United with Solskjaer refusing to comment on the Frenchman’s performance.
Former Tottenham man Jamie O’Hara was left frustrated by the Norwegian’s dismissive attitude and suggested he should be trying to emulate the current Chelsea boss.
Speaking to talkSPORT, he said: “I want him to be like Thomas Tuchel, who comes out and is honest, like when Saul was taken off at half-time, but he [Solskjaer] gives these politically boring answers.”
Solskjaer will be able to see the Chelsea boss at close quarters in a few months time as the Blues host Manchester United at Stamford Bridge in late November.
The last clash between the two coaches ended 0-0.
