Rio Ferdinand has come out in support of Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer while speaking with a group of disenchanted supporters following the club's 2-0 defeat to West Ham United.

Goals from Andriy Yarmolenko and Aaron Cresswell consigned United to their second defeat of the 2019-20 season.

Having won just five of his last 16 games, some United supporters have called for Solskjaer to be removed from his post.

Sitting in his car speaking to supporters gathered outside the London Stadium, Ferdinand said in an Instagram video: "Ole out? Come on man, where's that coming from? Ole out for what? Are we just going to keep changing managers every week, is that what everyone wants?

"You get a bad result, you change. Two weeks ago I didn't see anyone saying 'we want Ole out' and now it's changing after two weeks. Come on man."

United are now without an away win in the Premier League since a 3-1 victory over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park in February.

The Red Devils find themselves on eight points after six Premier League games - two points better off than Jose Mourinho's United after the same number of games last term.
