Cristiano Ronaldo personally intervenes on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sacking at Man Utd

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is said to be on thin ice at Manchester United.

Cristiano Ronaldo is encou’raging his Manchester United tea’m-mates to stand by Ole Gu’nnar Solskjaer amid the ongoing’ spec’ulation over the latter’s imm’ediate fut’ure, accord’ing to rep’orts. The’ Red Devils boss cu’rrently finds himself in hot water at Old Traff’ord follow”ing Sunday’s em’barrassing home defeat at the ha’nds of Liverp’ool.

United were torn ap”art on their own patch by their Mers’eyside rivals, with Na’by Keita and Diogo Jota hand’ing the Red’s an early advantage before Moham’ed Salah’s hat-trick co”ndemned the hosts to the”ir worst defeat in recent memory.

The result has piled th’e pres’sure on Solskjaer, who” was already under fire before kick-off on Sunday, to deliv’er a rap’id response in order to keep his job.

Former Inter Mila”n boss An’tonio Conte has reporte’dly ex’pressed an interest in taking over at United, who are said to have made contact with the Italian’s entoura’ge on Mond”’ay and Tue’sday.

However, Solskjaer is expe’cted to remain in cha’rge ag’ainst Tottenham on Sat”urday afternoon, with club ch”iefs prep’ared to give the Norwegian boss a’ fin’al opportu’nity to put ‘things right.

A number of United playe’rs are believed” to hav’e lo”st faith in the 48-yea’r-old since the beginning of the sea’son, but it seems as though Rona”ldo is looking to use his presence in the dress”ing ro’om to unite the squad behind their curren’t mana’ger.


The five-time Ballon d’Or winn’er is attempting to rally h’is team-mates as he seeks to g’et them on the same pag’e ahead of the club’s next few matches, according to the Manchester Evening News.

The report claims t’hat Ron’aldo has instru’cted th’e rest of the United squ”’ad to avoid downing tools, regard’less of their personal opinio’ns on Solskj’aer, unt’il the situati’on is reso”lved.

Many players have be’en left confused by Solsk”jaer’s decision-making as of late,’ with his reluctance to pla’y Jesse Lingard and Don’ny van’ de Beek said to be a major sticki’ng point.

It remains to be seen whet’her Ronaldo’s interv’ention will have the desired eff’ect ahead of Saturday’s m’eeting with Tottenham in n’orth London.
