Manchester United took to the water in Leicester this Saturday (2-4), chaining a third game without a win in the Premier League. The pressure is growing on the shoulders of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in England, where the Red Devils’ non-existent gameplay is causing a stir.
“We deserved to lose. “ Paul Pogba (28) did not go through four paths after Manchester United’s heavy defeat at Leicester (2-4) this Saturday as part of the 8th day of the Premier League. A second defeat, already, for the Red Devils this season in the league placing the men of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as well as the Norwegian manager himself under fire in England.
It must be said that the plethora of staff available to the technician of 48 has been disappointing since the start of the season, while MU has only won 5 of its 11 games played in all competitions, certainly scoring 19 goals but conceding 14 goals in the process. . But what does not pass across the Channel is also the face displayed by the residents of Old Trafford. Despite an extraordinary offensive potential, Cristiano Ronaldo (ghostly against the Foxes) and his partners are struggling to convince in the game, the real style of this team is still being identified.
Maguire in the sights of OGS
While he admitted that his team deserved the defeat, Paul Pogba also explained the gist of his thoughts, insisting that something had to change at Manchester United. “To be honest, we’ve been playing these kinds of games for a long time. We did not find the problem, conceding easy goals, stupid goals. We need to be more mature, to play with more experience and arrogance, in a good way. We have to find something, we have to change something ”, dropped the French world champion.
For its part, OGS made a media outing noticed in front of the media by explicitly pointing the finger at its central defender Harry Maguire, orphan of Raphaël Varane (injured for several weeks) in central defense and in great difficulty at King Power Stadium against his former stable. “I choose the team. Harry Maguire showed no reaction and I am responsible if it does not work ”, first entrusted the ex-Manchester United striker, before continuing, also suggesting that change should take place soon while recalling that he does not have all of his workforce currently.
A hellish calendar awaits MU
” If we [concédons 4 buts], I probably made a bad decision. Lately we haven’t been in great shape, lost too many points and that’s something we need to look at. We may have to change. I have a lot of good players. We miss Fred, Edinson Cavani (also absent, Editor’s note). I’m not looking for excuses, they are top footballers and we weren’t performing well enough. We weren’t good enough with and without the ball ”, concluded Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
In any case, Mancunian supporters are also starting to get impatient. It now remains to know the limit of the patience of the owners of Manchester United, who will have to react on Wednesday for the reception of Atalanta Bergamo (9 p.m.) in the Champions League. Especially since a hellish schedule (Atalanta, Liverpool, Tottenham, Atalanta, Manchester City) awaits the Red Devils over the next 3 weeks. A difficult course to cross which should say a lot about the real level of this team.
