Manchester United News: Solskjaer, Herrera, Podcast, Fellaini, Pogba, De Gea


We’re a few hours away from kickoff of Manchester United’s weekend fixture, at the King Power Stadium versus Leicester City. We’ve got all the necessary resources and info on that match, but in the meantime we’ve got plenty of other United news items to cover.

According to midfielder Ander Herrera, caretake manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is really “clicking” with the players.

“Ole had that click with some players that they are performing at their best,” Herrera told ESPN. “He is getting the best from Rashford, he is getting the best from Paul, he is getting the best from Anthony, from Jesse. That’s not easy.”


“When you are a manager, we sometimes speak too much about tactics. But the most difficult thing for a manager is to get the best from his best players and this manager is doing it. We have all seen it.”

Exactly, it’s the same exact roster of players, but a completely different team on the pitch now after the switch was made from Jose Mourinho. The players who didn’t work well with Mourinho, and weren’t realizing their potential previously, are now being all that they can be under the Norwegian’s tutelage.

-On the last day of the 2015-16 season Manchester United hosted AFC Bournemouth, but about a half hour before kick-off, a suspicious device was found inside a toilet in Old Trafford, forcing an evacuation and a rare postponement for MUFC.

I was actually in attendance that Championship Sunday. The Let’s Get Weird, Sports podcast is a unique one where I shared my first hand experience as the stadium was evacuated and the drama that ensued afterwards.

Have a listen below:

Marouane Fellaini ended his five-and-a-half season stint with the club yesterday when the Belgian finalized his move to Chinese side Shandong Luneng Taishan.

Both Paul Pogba and David de Gea gave him a proper send-off.
