Man United players question Solskjaer’s tactics openly just as the situation at the theatre of dreams become more tensed up with the board alleged to have made undisclosed contact with former Chelsea and Juventus boss Antoniio Conte.
At the moment, the board are considering salary the structure as well as the pro and cons associated with any signing.
Meanwhile, it appears that the players are starting to question whether Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is the right man for the club going forward.
While it’s too early to suggest that the Norwegian is losing the dressing room, it’s clear that there’s a growing dissatisfaction behind the scenes.
Speaking after the 4–2 defeat away at Leicester City, the Frenchman slammed the Red Devils for conceding ‘easy, stupid goals’.
Pogba said: “We deserved to lose. To be honest, we have been having these kind of games for a long time. We have not found the problem, conceding easy goals, stupid goals.
“We need to be more mature, play with more experience and arrogance in a good way. We need to change, we need to find the right mentality and the right tactic. Stick with it and resolve the problem.”
Taking to social media after the Liverpool disaster, Ronaldo stated that Man United fans ‘deserve better’ and called on the team to finally start delivering.
The Portuguese wrote on Instagram: “Sometimes the result is not the one we fight for. Sometimes the score is not the one we want. And this is on us, because there’s no one else to blame. The fans deserve better than this and it’s up to us to deliver.”
David De Gea
The Spaniard was curt after the Old Trafford defeat, simply accusing the team of ‘playing like kids’ after conceding nine goals in two Premier League games.
Shaw also questioned Solskjaer’s tactics on Sunday, claiming that the Red Devils are currently ‘easy to play against’.
The full-back said: “It’s ourselves that we need to look at, first and foremost, in the mirror. Are we doing everything right and preparing right for the games in ourselves? Of course we have the tactics and how the manager wants us to play, but I think at times we’re way too easy to play against.
“I think, for example, you look at the first goal, it can’t be possible that they can have sort of three running through in the first five minutes. We need to be more compact, we need to be better and we know that. I think also maybe we can say this result was coming.”
