At least one Manchester United player was in support of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer getting the sack, according to football journalist Duncan Castles.
Solskjaer was named as United’s permanent manager during March 2019 and since his appointment the Norwegian has found himself come under intense critism from both fans and pundits alike.
Despite enjoying several patches of rich form, the current United squad have also endured dire runs which have included some crushing defeats.
Solskjaer lead his United side into the new 2020-21 campaign after finishing third in the Premier League last season but did crash out of the FA Cup and Europa League competitions at the semi-final stage.
However, although still only being a handful of games into the new season, United have so far failed to win at Old Trafford during a run of fixtures which have seen Arsenal, Chelsea and Spurs all take points from the Reds’ stomping ground.
Shockingly, Castles has recently made a savage claim that at least one United player was in support of the club sacking Solskjaer and even considered the potential decision to be ‘a good idea’.
As quoted by Express, Castles said: “At least one senior player, recently asked about the situation, said he expected Solskjaer to be sacked before long.
“The feeling he got within the club was that he was coming to the end of his tenure and would not be unhappy, from the perspective of improving performances and giving the team a better chance of succeeding in the Premier League and the Champions League, if that was to happen.
“From a pure sporting perspective, he thought that would be a good idea.”
