Leeds [UK], Apr 24 (ANI): Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola said that he understands Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer position, as the latter is facing a lot of criticism for his club's recent defeats.

"I understand his position perfectly. We are alone, I am alone and that's why I understand completely his position. It happened to me, it happened to all the managers around the world. We can sustain it if we win, if we don't we are in danger," Goal.com quoted Guardiola, as saying.

"That is the reality, we have to accept it. It is what it is. I understand perfectly and I am with him, I support him, honestly," he added.

Solskjaer's side, recently, faced an embarrassing 4-0 defeat against Everton. Moreover, they were ousted from the Champions League after Barcelona handed them a 4-0 (aggregate) defeat in the quarter-finals.

Solskjaer, who was brought in initially as an interim replacement for Jose Mourinho in December last year, was appointed as Manchester United's full-time manager last month on a three-year contract.

Manchester United will now face Guardiola's Manchester City on April 24. (ANI)
