Manchester United sank to a new low after losing to Manchester City. This loss was an embarrassing 5-0 loss against Liverpool, which has intensified the calls for United’s Norwegian manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, to be sacked.

Ole has tried two different systems at the club, but the 5-3-2 he used against Manchester City was easily picked apart by Pep Guardiola’s team. It seemed as if Manchester City took their foot off the gas in the second half and just passed the ball around.

No, I don’t start to do that. I have good communication all the time with the club, we’re very upfront and honest about the situation. I work for Man Utd and want the best for Man Utd and while I’m here I’ll do what I can to improve this, and that’s going back to what we started to look like,” Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said.

However, United fans do not feel the same way about their club legend. There was huge outrage on Twitter as United are now languishing in the sixth spot and could fall as low as 10th in the Premier League table after 11 games.

Ole says players will do better after the international break

The Norwegian also added that his squad was doing much better a little while ago, during the start of the season. United finished second in the Premier League last season after a late burst from the Reds. However, Ole did add that he expects the entire squad to do better after they come back from the international break.

I’m sure when we come back, the players will be fresh in their mind after internationals. The demands on me and the players are going to be high, the expectations,” he added.
