EPL: I paid price for Man United’s failure – Ole Solskjaer

Sacked Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has insisted that he paid the price for the club’s failure to “take the next step”.

Man United parted company with Solskjaer in the wake of their Premier League 4-1 defeat to Watford on Saturday evening.

The Red Devils then put Michael Carrick in temporary charge while they seek to appoint an interim manager.

“I wanted us to take the next step to challenge for the league, to win trophies… but unfortunately I could not get the results we needed and it’s time for me to step aside,” Solskjaer told MUTV.

“Second place last season ahead of arguably one of the best teams in Europe (Liverpool), I think that is a great achievement as well.

“And we were so close in Europe. Sometimes that is the fine margin for you, one penalty.”

Man United are currently in the eighth position on the Premier League table with 17 points from 12 matches. Dailypost


EPL: Wayne Rooney speaks on becoming new Man Utd manager after Solskjaer’s sack

Former Manchester United striker, Wayne Rooney, has said he has no plans of leaving Derby County any time soon.

Rooney has been linked with the vacant seat at Old Trafford after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was fired on Sunday.

Although he admitted he speaks to people at United regularly, the ex-England star has insisted that he would have gotten the job by now if the Red Devils wanted him.

“I’m committed to this football club until somebody above me tells me otherwise,” Rooney said.

“I speak to people at Manchester United on a regular basis and I’m sure, if they were going to come calling for me, that would have happened by now.”

Zinedine Zidane and Mauricio Pochettino are believed to be frontrunners for the role. Dailypost


Man Utd list 3 managers that could replace Solskjaer

Manchester United have identified three managers that could replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, according to the UK Mirror.

The Norwegian is under pressure following a 2-1 defeat to Young Boys in the Champions League.

Solskjaer’s decisions during the match have been widely criticised, as he took off Jadon Sancho for Diogo Dalot after Aaron Wan-Bissaka was sent off.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Bruno Fernandes were substituted with 20 minutes left, when the game was still 1-1.

United have now lost seven of their 11 Champions League matches under Solskjaer and there are already calls for the Norwegian to be replaced.

And there are three obvious candidates who could be available.

They are: Antonio Conte, Zinedine Zidane and Brendan Rodgers.

Conte and Zidane are immediately available, as they have been without a job since they left Inter Milan and Real Madrid, respectively.

Rodgers might be a harder option, as he is currently in charge of Leicester City. Dailypost


Man Utd vs Granada: Ole Solskjaer adds new player to his squad

Manchester United have added Will Fish, another of their young talents to their Europa League squad, ahead of Thursday’s quarter-final second leg against Granada.

Clubs in UEFA competitions can add as many U-21 players as they want to their ‘B list’ during the season.

United boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, named forward Anthony Elanga on the bench for the 2-0 win at Granada in the first leg, after he was included on the list in the days prior to the game.

And now ahead of the second leg, the club have confirmed that 18-year-old Fish is the latest teenager to be called up.

The Manchester-born centre-back could be set for a role in the matchday squad against the LaLiga side.

Fish captained United’s Under-16s and briefly played for the under-18s before becoming a regular in the Under-23s side. Dailypost

Coronavirus: Ole Solskjaer sends message to Man Utd players’ wives, girlfriends

Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has asked the wives and girlfriends of his players, to keep them sharp during the coronavirus lockdown.

Solskjaer is keeping in touch with his players via WhatsApp, with Premier League fixtures on hold because of COVID-19.

Each player in the squad is being given an individual fitness programme to follow.

However, Solskjaer has called on his players’ partners, to play their part by joining in with their training sessions and home kickabouts.

“The players have got individual programmes, so this period could be used to work on something special, something specific for them.

“I’ve been in the garden, with the kids, working on finishing and the strikers should be working on finishing or their movement.

“Most of the players have got good facilities and decent gardens so, hopefully, their wives and girlfriends will be able to put some passes and crosses in,” he said according to the UK Mirror. Dailypost
