EPL: Mutinies, Rock Bottom, and Trouble at Ole’s Old Trafford

EPL: Mutinies, Rock Bottom, and Trouble at Ole’s Old Trafford

The reign of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may be beginning to unravel. Those following 12BET UK news may be familiar with what happened after Manchester United suffered a humiliating 5-0 loss at home from EPL opponents Liverpool. Although this may be the rumor, the silence from Old Trafford is deafening.

The silence is eerily and malevolently similar to the days when Jose Mourinho received the boot. Manchester’s news crew wasn’t being given any indication that the board is still impressed with their man. There’s still time for the board to say that they’re doing otherwise in the case of Solskjaer, but so far, there has been little to no news.

The Writing on the Wall

The situation at Old Trafford usually gives off a warning that something is happening behind the scenes. With how the current manager Solskjaer has been performing, this time, that silence could be concerning him. It doesn’t help that replacement managing director Richard Arnold has cancelled all his appointments Monday.

For those who haven’t been following Man U football, managing director Ed Woodward is set to go out of the club. Richard Arnold has been tapped as his replacement. However, as Arnold has cleared his appointments in order to allegedly address the situation at Old Trafford, Solskjaer’s job may be on the chopping board.

A History at Old Trafford

Proof of how Solskjaer’s job may be on the line is Arnold’s meetings with the Glazers, the club’s American ownership. Solskjaer was also called to a meeting at the Carrington training ground, while most of coaching staff, as well as the whole squad, were given a day off.

Mourinho and David Moyes received their pink slips after a Sunday afternoon defeat. Moyes lost 0-2 at Everton, which effectively brought them outside the top four. Mourinho was a victim of Liverpool as well, losing 3-1 to the Premier League club.

Great as a Person, Not as a Coach

Despite all his misgivings, Solskjaer was considered a person that’s genuinely great to be around. That did not mean that he was a great coach. The dressing room had vastly different opinions around him and there’s also the fact that he’s been questioned and the negative opinion did not go away.

Whatever the events that are going to transpire as 12BET Sports watches Solskjaer’s career closely, word is that Darren Fletcher will be taking over as interim manager while replacements are being reviewed. Those included in this field are former Real Madrid player and manager Zinedine Dizane, Ajax’ Erik ten Hag, and PSG coach Mauricio Pochettino.
