There's A Petition For Ole Gunnar Solskjaer To Be Sacked By Manchester United

Some Manchester United fans are so angry with the defeat to Arsenal last night that they have signed a petition to sack Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

After wins over Newcastle and Burnley over the Christmas period, United were well beaten at the Emirates - making a losing start to 200 courtesy of first-half goals from Nicolas Pepe and Sokratis Papastathopoulos.

Arsenal had won just once in 15 games prior to Mikel Arteta's first victory in charge, while this was United's sixth defeat of the league campaign so far.

And with United in fifth, five points off the top four, some supporters have turned on club legend Solskjaer and want him gone.

The petition, which has received over 500 signatures at the time of writing, reads: "Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is destroying Manchester United. We need to get him out ASAP before he does any more damage to this once mighty club."

While United fans will always love for Solskjaer did on the pitch, many have been irritated by how overly positive he is after defeats such as last night when his team were not at it whatsoever.

In fact, former United striker Robin van Persie was annoyed at the way in which the Norwegian was still there smiling in his post-match interview.

"I look at Ole and he seems like a really nice guy," Van Persie said on BT Sport.

"I would like to see him a bit more edgy, a bit more mean at times. He's smiling after a game like that. This is not the moment to smile."

Solskjaer picked up more points after 10 games than any other Premier League manager but his win ratio as full-time manager in the Old Trafford hot-seat is a lowly 29.5%.

There's increasing pressure from fans, who got #OleOut trending on Twitter following the 2-0 loss against Watford when they were bottom of the league.

But there's next to no chance of his job being under threat in the near future
