An unnamed United player has criticised manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his training methods, according to the Independent.
The newspaper’s chief football reporter Miguel Delaney claimed a friend of the player told him this week that Solskjaer is now “insecure” in his position as manager.
Not only that but the player is also believed to have been critical of the Norwegian and his coaching team in terms of the training. Delaney’s source says the United player criticised training as being ” so basic” whilst also claiming that it was “lacking in creativity.”
Whether these sources are relaying accurate information, it remains to be seen, but Solskjaer is worried enough about the leaks to speak out on the rumours claiming that he had a fallen out with Bruno Fernandes. At his press conference today, he accused outsiders of trying to undermine unity in the dressing room:
“We know any little chance from outside, they want to create a division.”
It is very concerning that these sorts of claims are being made, and it does suggest that Solskjaer’s hold on the dressing room is slipping. The only way to put that right though will be getting results on the pitch over the coming weeks.
