Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Sacking Speculation Surges after UCL Setback


Manchester United shockingly suffered an utterly inexplicable and completely unjustifiable 2-1 to Istanbul Basaksehir in the Champions League group stage today. The home side, who had started the day without a point or a goal in the UCL, handed United their fourth loss in just 11 games this season.

Across all competitions, United have only one win at home in five tries, and the bad run of results is rapidly raising the temperature of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s seat as manager.

United club legend Roy Keane, now a television pundit, has said the United players “will get Solskjaer sacked” and the former team captain’s comments were raised at the Solskjaer post match news conference today.

“I decline to comment on such a thing,” OGS responded to the query.

“Of course it’s early on. Opinions are out there all the time. You’ve got to stay strong. I’m employed by the club to do a job and I do that to the best of my ability with our staff.”

Opinions are definitely out there, as #OleOut was a top trending term on Twitter today. You also have plenty of stories circulating that claim the Norwegian will be dismissed should they lose at Everton this weekend.

Sitting 15th in the Premier League table, if United keep not getting results, they’ll fall into the drop zone and that means it would be curtains for Solskjaer. Opinions within the supporter base are mixed about whether or not they should pull the plug, but those who do want him relieved of duty are getting louder by the game.

Mauricio Pochettino seems to be the favored replacement at this point, as he is available.

  16. Sack ole he’s a fool. Last season 3 semi finals with out a trophy and this Season he’s incompetence increases. Sack him

  17. Honest lier says

    Ole out,poor, incompetent.

  18. I’m sick and tired of this guy’s (OGS) football tactics. Very boring football. If I was in place of Mr.Woodward, I could’ve sacked this ‘norwegian kid’ after the Arsenal match. As a man united fan, I expect a manager who is TWICE BETTER THAN Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp. Ole is TEN TIMES WORSE.
    MAN UNITED is a big name, you can not introduce a counter attacking style of play (4-2-3-1) in such a team and you expect to win trophies. I need a legendry possessive and attack minded playing style (4-3-3).
    I recommend the next man united coach to take this lineup as the starting x1:
    Goalkeeper: Dean Henderson
    Defenders: Alphonso Davies, Ben White, T.Mings, Alex Telles
    Midfield: Bruno Fernandez, Kevin De Bruyne, Declan Rice
    Strikers: Kylian Mbappe, Harry Kane, Gnabry.
    With this lineup, we can return to our sweet days with the Legend, Sir Alex Ferguson.

  19. His last is against everton.
