Manchester United Players And Staff 'Baffled' After Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Gives Them The Week Off
| Last updated
Club football is on hold for the time being, with the bulk of United's squad partaking in international commitments with their respective countries.
However, the likes of Raphael Varane, Jadon Sancho, Mason Greenwood, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Phil Jones, Alex Telles, Donny van de Beek and Juan Mata - to name just a few United players - are not on international duty.
Despite this though, Solskjaer has elected to give his squad and backroom staff the week off in a move that has shocked those at United - according to the Daily Mail.
It means the 16 players not involved with international squads are not required to report to training, with Solskjaer himself not even present at Carrington.
The United boss has flown back to his native Norway, with photographers capturing Solskjaer, his wife Silje and their sons Noah and Elijah at Manchester Airport boarding a private jet ahead of a flight to hometown Kristiansund.
Raphael Varane had treatment on his hamstring injury on Monday and so will be in at the AON training complex regularly during the break, while Marcus Rashford is set to train on his own after pulling out of the England squad for qualifying games against Albania and San Marino.
United have lost six of their last 12 games, including damaging defeats against Liverpool and Manchester City in the Premier League at Old Trafford.
The Red Devils travel to Watford on 20 November in their next fixture and there Solskjaer is expected to be in the dugout at Vicarage Road.
Sky Sports say United have "no plans" to replace Solskjaer even though a slew of United players have reservations about whether he is the right man to take the club forward.
