He took to Twitter to voice his opinion on the ongoing scenario.

Per ‘The Notorious’, “The issue at United is it’s just bunch of youngfellas talking to each other. Peers. You need someone above the group chat to take the helm. Ole was on the bench when Ronaldo played. A peer. Not enough. Love and respect Ole to the max, but his role needs rearranged. My opinion.”
