There’s One Person Some Manchester United Players Wanted To Take Over From José Mourinho
It would seem that not every Manchester United player was sold on Ole Gunnar Solskjær's appointment as the new caretaker manager.
According to the Independent, some of the players have questioned how well the 45-year-old Norwegian would be at commanding respect with the current squad.
However, it is suggested that many United players wanted Michael Carrick to be the club's first choice for caretaker manager.
The former Red Devils star had been appointed interim coach after the sacking of former manager José Mourinho.
However, the club announced on Wednesday that Solskjær would be in charge at Old Trafford until the end of the season.
"Manchester United is in my heart and it's brilliant to be coming back in this role," he said.
"I'm really looking forward to working with the very talented squad we have, the staff and everyone at the club."
His first match as United boss will be against Cardiff City on Saturday. Of course, Solskjær previously managed the Bluebirds in 2014.
