David Beckham has backed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to fight off his critics and continue the 'incredible' job he is doing at Old Trafford.
Bruno Fernandes was left on the bench during Manchester United's 3-1 FA Cup defeat to Leicester City.
Despite receiving criticism for his team selection, and pressure to win his first trophy as Man United manager, Beckham believes Solskjaer is delivering at the club.
Beckham knows Solskjaer very well from their seven years together at Man United, with both being a part of one of the most successful and trophy-laden periods in the club's history.
The most famous season together was in 1998/99 where they won the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League.
"I've seen some of the criticism but I suppose when you are a manager of Man United when they've had success over the years that they've had, there was always going to be a point where people get criticised, whether it's the players, whether it's the owners, whether it's the manager," Beckham exclusively told ESPN.
"Ole's been in the game long enough to be able to take any kind of criticism. He's very quiet, he gets on with his job, and I think he's done an incredible job down at United" he added.
"The results are starting to show that. Hopefully it continues because the fans love Ole, we all love Ole and we all want him to do well. So when the criticism comes, he's one person that can take it."
Gibbs to join Beckham's revolution in Miami
Beckham himself is currently focusing on the upcoming MLS season as co-owner of Inter Miami and has already been proactive in making new additions to the squad.
Kieran Gibbs of West Bromwich Albion is set to join Beckham and Phil Neville at the end of the Premier League season.
The fullback, who won 10 caps for international level for England, previously played for Arsenal and at 31, will offer much-needed experience for the squad which enters its second season as a franchise.
The arrival of Gibbs will mark the second Englishman to join alongside Ryan Shawcross, who made the switch from Stoke City last month.
Before Gibbs makes his move across the Atlantic, his first job will be to try and prevent a likely relegation to the Championship for West Brom.
