It’s been a week to forget for those of Manchester United’s persuasion and it’s only seemingly getting worse as information has emerged about the Manchester team’s behind-the-scenes troubles.
Man united hammered
Manchester United suffered one of the worst defeats in the Premier League this past weekend.
The Red Devils would host bitter rivals Liverpool at Old Trafford and suffered an embarrassing 5-0 loss to Jurgen Klopp’s men.
Clear problems under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer have been building for some time now, with Man United already out of the League Cup, making some horrible demonstrations in the Champions League and, far behind 1S t place in the Premier League.
For many, the 5-0 beating against Liverpool was the final straw and many probably expected Solskjaer to be fired this week.
Backstage problems at Manchester United
However, reports have since emerged that Solskjaer will be at least in charge of the club for one more game, against Tottenham this weekend:
The decision of the main body of the Manchester United board of directors is now confirmed / approved. My understanding is that Ole Gunnar Solskjær will definitely be in charge of Tottenham’s game on Saturday 🔴 #MUFC

Even though Ole’s job is secure for now, all is clearly not going well at Manchester United.
And now, The Times has moved to detail the backstage disharmony at Old Trafford.
The times report that the Man United players fought with each other and with management during a clear meeting between themselves and staff two days after the 4-2 loss to Leicester City.
During this meeting, Solskjaer asked the players for their opinion on what could be done to improve the team’s poor form, which caused some players to not hold back.
One player is said to have questioned Solskjaer’s decision to give Harry Maguire the captaincy just six months after he joined from Leicester.
Elsewhere, another player criticized some of his teammates for lack of motivation in training, while a team member criticized Solskjaer for his team selection, directly questioning him as to why he was so reluctant to leaving players who were performing poorly in matches.
The report adds that another heated discussion took place between the players in the home dressing room after the loss to Liverpool, while some players had previously said among themselves that they did not believe that Solskjaer had the tactical ability to go head-to-head with some of the best coaches in the Premier League, such as Pep Guardiola, Jurgen Klopp and Thomas Tuchel.
