The dismissal of Ole Gunner Solskjaer from Manchester United prompted strong reactions, with some even finding officials within the Manchester United squad.
In recent days, several people have stood up for the Norwegian coach and targeted the locker room at Old Trafford. The latest is Paul Merson, Arsenal legend and former England international. He specifically blamed Cristiano Ronaldo, saying that everything had collapsed with the arrival of the five-time Ballon d’Or this summer …
“I’m sorry for Solskjaer, because it was clear that they had a well-defined plan for the team from the end of last season, when they finished second. This summer they finally got Sancho and we could see what he wanted: Sancho on one side, Marcus Rashford on the other, Cavani who collects the crumbs, Greenwood who joins the team… Youth, rhythm, dribbling and a lot of energy “, he said declared.
“And then, on the last day of the transfer window, Cristiano Ronaldo arrived and it ruined everything. Everything went wrong. With Ronaldo, they could no longer play on the counterattack. This season, Bruno barely touched the ball. Don’t get me wrong, Cristiano is one of the best players in the world, but he is the Achilles heel of this team, “he said emphatically.
All this did not stop the Portuguese from saluting Solskjaer on social media after the announcement of his dismissal: “He was my striker when I arrived at Manchester United and he was my coach when I returned to the squad . But, above all else, Ole is an amazing person. I wish him the best in whatever life has in store for him now. Good luck my friend, you deserve it, “wrote CR7.
