Usain Bolt says Solskjaer 'too nice' for Man Utd, calls for him to DROP Fred and opens up on failed football career
USAIN BOLT reckons Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is too nice to be Manchester United manager.
The sprint legend is a huge Red Devils fan and he wants to see Solskjaer 'change' and not be too positive all the time.
Solskjaer has been in charge for three years and has the team on course to finish second in the Premier League.
United are also still in the FA Cup and Europa League but without a league title in eight seasons.
Bolt, 34, told CNN: "He's too nice. That's the only thing I can say, he's too nice.
"He never really says anything bad about any player, even if they don't play good and that's the only thing.
"But if he changes and really pressures the players, you know what I mean, calls them out sometimes when they really didn't put their all into it, then I feel like he should stay because he is cool and the fans love him."
Sprint king Bolt also called on the Norwegian boss to drop Fred from the starting line-up.
The Jamaican icon said: "I think Fred should not be in the midfield. I think he is lacking so much.
"He works hard, but he's lacking passing and he gives away a lot of cheap fouls in bad areas — and we definitely need more strikers, somebody that's really a pure striker.

I think Cavani needs to play more. I definitely feel like as long as he's fit, he should be on the field, you know what I mean, and overall, I think we need to just pressure all the players."
Bolt added: "I feel like they're so comfortable now because they know they're going to start.
"If you're sure of your spot, then you don't play as hard as you should. So, it's just one of those things I feel like needs to change and we'll be fine."
Bolt has won eight Olympic gold medals in his stunning career but revealed regret over his failed football switch.
He trained with Norwegian side Stromsgodset before a chance with the Central Coast Mariners in Australia's A-League.
But he called time on his career in 2019 and ended his football dream.
Bolt revealed: "It's something that I really enjoyed.
"The only regret I think I would have gotten a better chance if I had stayed in Europe, but I was worried about the European press. You guys are savage!
"So, I decided to go to Australia, but it was a lot of fun. Now I just play six-a-side of my friends, just for fun."
