Damning Reports Of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's Reign As Man Utd Manager Have Emerged, Players Openly Question Him

Manchester United players have told Ole Gunnar Solskjaer he's an 'issue' following Sunday's humiliating 5-0 defeat to Liverpool.

United haven't won in their last four Premier League games and losing to their rivals at Old Trafford has brought pressure on manager Solskjaer.

It's been a disappointing start to the season for United, who have now kept just one clean sheet in their last 21 games in all competitions.

The Athletic have reported Solskjaer asked his players for their thoughts on what was going wrong at the back specifically.

'More than one' is said to have directly called out Solskjaer as a problem while also believing he isn't at the level of other top six managers.

Tactics used over the weekend are also said to have confused some of United's players when it came to pressing.

Liverpool carved United open on a number of occasions due to holes being left behind, particularly on the right-hand side.

The report claims United do not train much in regards to pressing and players were bemused at the 'exact coordination' in action.

Jesse Lingard, Nemanja Matic and Donny van de Beek rarely play and Eric Bailly is said to have taken issue with Harry Maguire starting in this month's 4-2 loss to Leicester City.

Maguire was coming back from a calf injury but featured in just one training session before getting the nod and looking completely out of sorts - leading to Gary Neville stating the England defender "wasn't ready" to play.

Per James Ducker from The Telegraph, Bailly, feeling as though he should have played, confronted Solskjaer after the game and asked him "why he picked a centre-half who was not fit".

Despite behind the scenes problems mounting and Antonio Conte looming, Solskjaer maintains he is still the right man to take United forward.

He's expected to be in charge for Saturday's clash with Tottenham Hotspur and the Manchester derby on November 6.
