Europa League: Solskjaer Blames Stadium Seats, Red Belts for Man Utd’s Poor Home Form

  Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has suggested the red wrap on the seats at Old Trafford, could have contributed to their inconsistent home form. According to him, the players were unable to pick each other out during games. United have won 27 points at Old Trafford this season, losing four times and drawing three. However, on the road, they have picked up 36 points and are unbeaten in 23 Premier League games. The Red Devils face Granada in their Europa League quarter-final second leg on Thursday, looking for a first knockout round home win in this season’s competition. Solskjaer feels the team are now at an advantage because the banners around the seats have changed. “You’ll see a change now, if you see the banners around the club, it’s not ...

Sir Alex Ferguson ‘Lambasted’ me over Red Card – Solskjaer

  Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has recalled when Sir Alex Ferguson, “absolutely lambasted,” him, after he got sent off during a game against Newcastle back in 1998. United were fighting for the Premier League title with eventual champions Arsenal and every point mattered as the campaign neared its conclusion. Newcastle had come to Old Trafford and were on course for a draw, while United threw bodies forward in search of a goal. It was then, in the 89th minute, that the visitors broke away with Rob Lee charging down on Raymond van de Gouw’s goal with a clear chance to win the game, until Solskjaer’s timely intervention to scythe down his opponent and ensure his team avoided defeat. Solskjaer was promptly shown a straight red card, but had salvaged...

You Were Unfair to me at Man Utd – Ighalo Fires at Solskjaer

  Nigerian striker, Odion Ighalo, has said Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was “unfair” to him during his time at Manchester United. Ighalo joined the Red Devils in January 2020 on a six-month loan deal from Chinese Super League side Shanghai Shenhua. He impressed initially, scoring five goals in as many starts, a form that saw his loan extended until January 2021. But the 31-year-old started just two games this season before departing. And while Ighalo continues to “love” the Red Devils, he admits he had to leave after he was regularly snubbed by Solskjaer. “There wasn’t much possibility because I wanted more playing time,” Ighalo told Sky Sports when asked if he could have extended his stay with United. “At my age, I want to play and not just sit on the bench and not h...

Solskjaer wants Cavani to stay after Spurs display

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hailed Edinson Cavani's performance in Manchester United's 3-1 win over Tottenham and hopes he can persuade the striker to stay when his contract is up at the end of the season.

The England international is currently ahead of De Gea in Solskjaer’s pecking order of keepers. According to MailSport, De Gea, who is still considered one of the best goalkeepers in Europe, is now ready to quit Man United. The 30-year-old, who...

Man Utd Suffer Big Injury Blow after Brighton win Ahead of Granada Clash

  Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has admitted he was forced to withdraw Marcus Rashford during their 2-1 victory over Brighton due to an injury concern. Rashford made it 1-1 after former United forward Danny Welbeck gave Brighton an early lead. Mason Greenwood sealed the comeback win with an 83rd-minute header, but Rashford was already off the pitch having been replaced by Daniel James. Speaking after the victory, Solskjaer said: “I’m not sure. He got caught with a tackle so he had to come off. “Let’s see how he goes again. Marcus doesn’t want to miss any games or any minutes, but he had to come off. “It’s one of them again. Your fingers are crossed and you hope he’s going to recover from it. He had to come off but he’s a tough one.” Rashford...

De Gea Clashes with Solskjaer over Henderson

  David de Gea’s future at Manchester United is increasingly in doubt, as his relationship with manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has become strained over who is the number one goalkeeper at the club, according to the Manchester Evening News.

De Gea Set to leave Man United

  Manchester United goalkeeper, David de Gea, is set to leave Old Trafford at the end of the season with a big pay-off to cut his contract at the club early as Dean Henderson officially becomes manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first-choice keeper. According to the Mirror, De Gea and three other senior keepers, Sergio Romero, Lee Grant and Joel Pereira, are expected to be let go at the end of the season. Man United are ready to part ways with De Gea and want to get his eye-watering £350,000-a-week wages off their books. But with two years left to run on De Gea’s contract, any move by Man United to move the 30-year-old on will likely involve a substantial pay-out to cut his time at the Red Devils short. De Gea’s form has come under significant scrutiny over the past fe...
