Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Made A Promise To Man Utd Fan In Twitter DM's Before Deactivating His Account

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Made A Promise To Man Utd Fan In Twitter DM's Before Deactivating His Account

Back in October last year, just days after Manchester United recorded a 0-0 draw against AZ Alkmaar in the Europa League, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer deactivated his Twitter account.

It was unclear why the Norwegian decided to leave the social media platform but months later, his promise to a fan has come true.

Solskjaer had a total of 124k followers on the account and it believed that a number of United players followed him, including former club captain Ashley Young.

Before he deactivated his account, however, the United boss sent a message to fan account @utdarena before leaving the social media platform.

"Hi Sam. Thanks for your message." Solskjaer wrote. "I'm glad someone can see progress, we do. And the attacking will come."

United fan account @utdarena went on to explain the reasons behind the message.

"I just told him that I understood the project he was building and mentioned a few of the parts that were good," he said.

"I acknowledged that times were tough and said with more signings and continued training I am sure he will bring us back. Then I wished him well.

"I remember him referencing a post I made on pressing rates and his first game against Cardiff being the second best performance in the Premier League last season.

"He mentioned it in pre-season so I had a feeling he saw it as I knew he followed me. I sent a message and was glad he replied."

He later deleted the conversation, saying:

"I have deleted the tweets regarding Solskjær's message. It was merely to show you that he recognised how United have struggled offensively as some believed he was ignorant or unaware about it."

Many fans have since reacted to his departure from Twitter.
