(Video) Fabrizio Romano says Man Utd players were ‘destroyed’ after Solskjaer’s last game

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has overseen his final game in charge of Manchester United and was sacked by the club following his side’s dismal 4-1 defeat against Watford last weekend.

Heavy defeats against Liverpool and Manchester City had inflicted severe pain on Solskjaer’s brittle United side but the no-show at Watford was particularly embarrassing.

Following the game, Solskjaer was met by a split away section and had to be defended by Bruno Fernandes, who urged the travelling support to blame the players instead of the manager.

Solskjaer was dismissed the next day and subsequently, there have been reports over how some United players reacted to the Watford defeat.

Journalist and transfer specialist Fabrizio Romano has offered an insight into the dressing-room atmosphere straight after the game, claiming the players were ‘destroyed’ when the full-time whistle had gone.

“After this game with Watford, into the dressing-room, the atmosphere was really in shock. Real shock for Manchester United players, it’s true that some of the players were in tears,” Romano said, as seen above.

“Some of the players were in real shock, they were not able to trust what was going on on the pitch. The atmosphere into the dressing-room few minutes after the game was with players with no words. Completely destroyed on the mental side.

“This is also why the Man United board decided to fire the manager.”

SN’s verdict on Romano’s comments…
The performance against Watford was embarrassing. It wasn’t in keeping with Manchester United’s values and the players should be held accountable. Some of the things on show were simply not acceptable.

Manchester United captain Harry Maguire will take most of the blame and rightly so. The 28-year-old was once again at the heart of United’s defensive woes and was typically given his marching orders.

The disappointment described by Romano could be down to the players catching onto the inevitable – that Solskjaer’s days were numbered. Regardless, the performance alone should spark a strong reaction against Villarreal on Tuesday.

    Please get rid of the goalkeeper because statically he was the weakest link…get a younger goalkeeper who is more keen to keep the balls out of the pole….De Gea must go…problem solved

      Roland I don’t know what matches you have been watching by De Gea has been our best player so far his season and have made some fantastic safes . He’s refound the form we seen when he first joined. The only reason we have conseeded so many goals is because of our defense Maguire, Lindalof, Shaw and Wan Bassika haven’t been good enough and are the main reason why we’re are in this mess . It’s not De Gea’s fault at all
