Manchester United great Peter Schmeichel says Antonio Conte wouldn't suit the Old Trafford job.

Schmeichel has doubled down on his defence of former team-mate Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as the United legend insisted that Conte should not replace the Norwegian at Old Trafford.

"You can say, 'Conte is brilliant', but he doesn't stay anywhere for more than a couple of years," the former goalkeeper told The Times.

"We are not that football club. We tried that already. It doesn't work. Louis van Gaal didn't win the Premier League, Mourinho didn't. You say Conte or another name, it's no difference.

"It's about them and what they want to do in a small window of Manchester United's big history.

"The problem Ole has is that in this world of quick fixes and fast news he has to win yesterday.

"It has to be delivered now. But it's not the real world. We stopped that development for a period and our competitors closed the gap then ran away."
