According to recent reports, there are currently as many as five Manchester United players unhappy with life under manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
That’s according to a recent report from the Telegraph, who claims several members of the side’s senior first-team are dissatisfied with the Red Devils’ boss.
United’s most recent performance saw them limp over the line against Everton. The sides, who met at Old Trafford on Saturday, shared the points after the game ended 1-1.
Following United’s poor performance, which was echoed by the abysmal result, a trio of senior players, including David de Gea, Paul Pogba and Cristiano Ronaldo, were all spotted storming off the pitch – visibly unhappy.
The Telegraph also suggest that winger Jadon Sancho is becoming frustrated by Solskjaer’s reluctance to play him in his most natural position, which is, of course, a right-sided winger.
Finally, midfielder Donny van de Beek’s reported unhappiness comes as no surprise after the Dutchman was picked up on BT Sport’s cameras fuming from the bench during his side’s Champions League tie against Villarreal last week.
If the squad’s reported unhappiness isn’t enough for Solskjaer to try and contend with, the Norwegian now faces an incredibly tough run of fixtures which include playing Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City.
Although the club’s hierarchy plan for Solskjaer and his coaching set-up remains unconfirmed, it is widely expected that the remaining months of 2021 will prove decisive in the manager’s Old Trafford future.
