Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been accused of a 'sackable offence' over his use of Jadon Sancho, just months after the forward joined Manchester United.
Sancho's form since his long awaited move to United hasn't been up to the standard that the manager, or fans would have hoped for.
The former Borussia Dortmund player has struggled in a team that is struggling all round, and he's been the man to be dropped in recent weeks, with the return to fitness of Marcus Rashford.
United's struggles have seen Solskjaer move to a 5-3-2 system in recent games and that would reduce Sancho's chances of getting back into the starting XI.
However, reports have suggested the 21-year-old has been training as a wing back to fit into that new system, but pundit Danny Mills believes that's a sackable offence in itself.
"Good luck turning him into a wing-back!" the former Manchester City full back told the Football Insider.
"He didn’t play for England too much in the Euros because I don’t think he was reliable enough to track back and do the defensive side of it. Dortmund never played him there.
"You bought a winger who is going to create chances and score goals. Suddenly you’re going to play him at wing-back in an unbelievably leaky defence. It’s like, really?
"That’s almost a sackable offence in itself.
"Shall we put Cristiano Ronaldo at centre-half because he can head a ball? I think Ronaldo can head the ball better than the centre-halves at the moment so should they put him at centre-half?
"It’s more than a little bit ridiculous."
Solskjaer's troubles led to fans, and many in the media, to call for the Norwegian's sacking at Old Trafford, especially following the 5-0 destruction at Old Trafford by rivals Liverpool.
At the time Antonio Conte was available and many felt he should take over from the former Cardiff City manager, who eventually took the job at Tottenham Hotspur.
However Gary Neville always said he didn't think the Italian was the right man to take the reigns at United, and Mills' point may back up his fellow ex England right back.
The Italian tends to play with a 5-3-2 and it's likely that Sancho could have been a player who struggled to get into the side unless he adapted into being a wing back.
Sancho's start to life at United led to Neville to warn about him becoming the next Donny van de Beek, after the Dutchman has been reduced to a near laughing stock in his year in the north west of England so far.
The former Manchester City academy player's problems have already cost him his place in the England squad.
