Ole Gunnar Solskjaer waiting on Glazers phone call with Man United humiliated by Liverpool

Published

on

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed that he is yet to hear from the Glazer family after Manchester United’s embarrassing defeat at the hands of Liverpool on Sunday afternoon.

The Red Devils were torn apart by their bitter rivals at Old Trafford, with Naby Keita and Diogo Jota firing Jurgen Klopp’s side into an early lead before Mohamed Salah’s hat-trick condemned United to a crushing 5-0 loss.

The hosts were a far cry from their usual selves over the course of the 90 minutes, with Liverpool utterly dominant from the very first whistle.

United looked completely devoid of any creativity or defensive intelligence as they allowed the likes of Salah, Jota and Roberto Firmino to run rings around them on a consistent basis.

The result saw them slip down to seventh place in the Premier League table and piled even more pressure on Solskjaer to turn the club’s dire form around.

The 48-year-old, who signed a new long-term contract over the summer, has come under fire in recent months due to United’s regular on-pitch struggles.

It remains to be seen whether the Glazers will eventually pull the trigger in a desperate attempt to revive the club’s Premier League title bid in the coming weeks.

Solskjaer insisted after Sunday’s match that as far as he is aware, he still retains the backing of United’s hierarchy, although they are yet to contact him in the wake of their latest defeat.

“I’ve heard nothing else and I’m still thinking about tomorrow’s work,” said the Red Devils boss.

“We are all low. I can’t say I have felt worse than this. I accept the responsibility. That is mine today and mine going forwards.”

The Norwegian will now be tasked with going over the finer details of Sunday’s performance as the dust settles and the inquest begins at Old Trafford over the next few days.

He will be desperate for a return to winning ways against Tottenham, who were beaten by London rivals West Ham United this weekend, on Saturday.

Meanwhile, former United defender Gary Neville declared to Sky Sports that he cannot see the Glazers sacking Solskjaer before the end of the season.

“If this was post-Sir Alex [Ferguson] aftermath, Ole would be in massive trouble tonight,” said the eight-time Premier League title winner.

“I think the club will hold their nerve and I don’t think they’ve planned for another manager this season and they’ll sit with Ole until the end of the season.

“There will be a massive outcry from fans and media from everybody that he should be sacked and I can understand why after that game. It takes some recovery.

“I lost 7-0 in Barcelona once and I knew I was done [as Valencia manager]. I’d like to hear from the board to communicate with the fans to say if they are going to back the manager over the next six months.

“The media have asked questions and the feeling is they believe in the project. Ole believes he’s close, I remain to be convinced. Man United aren’t good.

“This team finished second and added a great player everyone was buzzing with five weeks ago. The reality is something has to change.”

Barcelona plan to offer €30 million for 24-year-old La Liga defender

Even though we are just a few weeks away until the transfer window slams to a shut, Barcelona remain active in the market and are still looking for ways to strengthen their squad.

The Catalans have roped in a slew of top-quality stars in the month of July, including star striker Robert Lewandowski. Although they are yet to sign a player in August, Xavi has set his sights firmly on a few players.

One of those players in question is Juan Foyth. The Villarreal starlet has been identified as the ideal replacement for Sergino Dest as Barcelona look for a reliable right-back that can offer more quality than the American international.

Indeed, Barça have been left frustrated by Dest’s lack of progress at Camp Nou. They are prepared to sanction the exit of the former Ajax starlet, with Manchester United among the clubs in contention to snap him up by the end of the month.

While Dest’s exit from Camp Nou could soon be on the horizon, Barcelona are actively trying to lure Foyth away from Villarreal. The club are even weighing up an offer for the young Argentine, according to Gerard Romero.

The reputed Spanish journalist suggests Barça are considering a bid of around €30 million plus add-ons for Foyth, in an attempt to convince Villarreal this summer.

The Catalans are aware of the fact that the Yellow Submarines rate the defender highly due to his tremendous success in La Liga. In addition to his form, he offers a lot of versatility to the table and with time on his side, he could be a smart long-term investment for the club.

Manchester United are serious about signing a world class star in the form of Casemiro and reports suggest that they are ready to agree a mammoth contract to convince the player.

As per today’s version of AS (news image provided below), the Real Madrid superstar is really tempted by the offer made by the Red Devils.

The famous Spanish news source have mentioned that Man Utd have tabled a five year deal that will make the midfielder earn a net salary of more than £34million (40 million euros).

Casemiro is now in a massive dilemma. United’s offer is so succulent that it guarantees the midfielder and his family’s stability for ‘decades’.

On the other hand, by accepting such a contract, the Brazilian international will have to give up on immediate sporting glory.

Moving to Old Trafford would mean swapping Champions League for Europa League and it is a hard decision to make for someone who is currently a European Champion and has won the continent’s premier competition five times.

AS claim the situation must be resolved soon. If Casemiro gives the green light to leave, then Real Madrid would demand a fee of at least £68million (80 million euros) to sell him.

The Samba star is one of the best defensive midfielders in the world but the Los Blancos have already prepared for the future by signing youngsters like Camavinga and Tchouameni, who can effectively play in the DM position.

At Old Trafford, Ten Hag does not have a specialist holding midfield star and someone like Casemiro will largely improve the squad. However, the question is, should Man Utd spend £68million to sign a player who will turn 31 next year?
