Some Manchester United Players Were 'In Tears' After 4-1 Defeat To Watford

A number of Manchester United players and staff were 'in tears' following their humiliating 4-1 defeat against 16th place Watford.

The Reds were comprehensively beaten in Saturday afternoon's Premier League clash at Vicarage Road, as goals from Joshua King, Ismaila Sarr, Joao Pedro and Emmanuel Dennis put further pressure on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Bruno Fernandes, meanwhile, gestured to the travelling United supporters that they shouldn't just boo Solskjaer but rather the team as a whole.

The former Molde and Cardiff City manager claimed after the full-time whistle that he can still turn things around at Old Trafford but according to reports, he will be sacked by the club 'within 48 hours'.

United scheduled an emergency board meeting at 7pm on Saturday night to discuss the 48-year-old's dismissal as manager, according to The Times.

In fact, The Manchester Evening News claim many players believe their defeat against Watford could be Solskjaer's last game in charge and are fully expecting the Norwegian to be sacked.

In addition to those emergency meeting talks, The Sun report that Solskjaer's backroom staff said their goodbyes following this weekend's defeat.

As mentioned earlier, the Norwegian believes he can still turn things around at Old Trafford, despite suffering seven defeats in their last 13 games.

"I always have belief in myself," Solskjaer said. "Of course, at the minute it's a difficult time for us. I can see, I can trust every single one out there to give their all.

"The staff are fantastic. But the results are difficult. I believe we can turn this around.

"I need to get the players to perform better, that's my responsibility, that's the biggest thing now. They're so disappointed, they're working, they're trying to find their confidence back."
