Manchester United players are said to be losing faith in manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The Reds were humiliated by Burnley at Old Trafford and it is claimed that Solskjaer’s methods are now dividing players as well as the fans.
As reported by Miguel Delaney of the Independent, there is ‘growing disquiet’ about the management at Old Trafford, with some players questioning certain tactical approaches and training drills.
Pressure is mounting on Solskjaer and he has now remarkably lost more games as permanent manager than he has won.
We sympathise with Ole in the sense that he is having to work with what is a weak squad that has been further depleted by injuries.
He has not been backed in the transfer market either despite the need for midfield and attacking reinforcements.
The Glazers’ and Ed Woodward’s role in the demise since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement has been shameful, and while Solskjaer was backed by the club today, he will is another victim of their ineptitude and greed.
But there were doubts over Solskjaer’s managerial pedigree when he was handed the job and he has justified these concerns.
It is questionable whether Solskjaer has improved United at all since his appointment. A manager like Mauricio Pochettino would face similar problems in dealing with the owners and Woodward, but we feel there is little doubt he would get better out of the current crop in the short-term.
