Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has ‘five unhappy’ players at Man United

All is not well at Old Trafford

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer seems to have problems in his Manchester United squad once again as reports claim there are up to five unhappy players within his ranks following the disappointing draw to Everton at the weekend.

United have only won two of their last five games in all competitions and Solskjaer has received heavy criticism from supporters for the displays on show at Old Trafford and it now appears that some of the playing staff have joined in.

As detailed in the Telegraph, Cristiano Ronaldo and Paul Pogba are two of the names mentioned that are rumoured to be unhappy.

Both Ronaldo and Pogba were seen storming down the tunnel after failing to win on Saturday whilst goalkeeper David De Gea also expressed his frustrations in the changing room at the full-time whistle.

It’s not just the more senior members of the team either, with summer signing Jadon Sancho also reportedly unhappy with Solskjaer.

Sancho has struggled to live up to his £73 million price tag since joining from Borussia Dortmund and has often found himself playing on the left wing as opposed to his preferred position on the right hand side.

Following the draw on Sunday, Solskjaer said that United “lacked that important cutting edge” when trying to find a winner.

Another on the list of frustrated players is – unsurprisingly – Donny van de Beek, who is demanding more playing time after a torrid time in the North West, having started just two games this season.

With a tough fixture list to come after the international break, including games against Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City, as well as the Champions League to contend with, a continuation of poor results will only further increase the pressure on Solskjaer.
