‘Car Crash Leadership’ ‘What Utter Nonsense’ United Fans On Twitter Frustrated By Solskjaer’s Refusal To Make Key Decision

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed that the club have two penalty takers in Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford this season, with the pair deciding between themselves who will step up to take them.

Pogba had his penalty saved by Wolves goalkeeper Rui Patricio in the 1-1 draw last night, just a week after Rashford scored from the spot in the 4-0 win over Chelsea. Solskjaer explained the decision after the game:

“The two of them are designated penalty takers, it’s up to them there and then. Sometimes players just feel they are confident to score. Paul has scored so many for us and today it was a good save.”

Supporters on Twitter believe it is weak management from the United boss, and they want him to make sure he has a designated number one penalty taker in future:

Pogba’s record from penalties isn’t great, and while he regularly took spot-kicks last season for United, this latest miss may prompt a rethink about who takes them. Rashford seems to be excellent under pressure, considering he scored a vital one against PSG in the Champions League last season, so it would be a sensible move if he was given the responsibility full time.
