In dialogue with Sky Sports, the former footballer with a past at Arsenal in England from 1985 to 1997 referred to the departure of the Norwegian after the 4-1 defeat against Watford, team that fights relegation: “I’m sorry for Solskjaer because it was clear that he had a well-defined plan for the team, from the end of last season, when they finished second. In the summer, he finally got Sancho and you could see what he wanted: Sancho on the one hand, Rashford on the other, Cavani running the attack, Greenwood joining the team… Youth, speed, dribbling and lots of energy ”.
In line, he assured that the arrival of the Portuguese disrupted what was planned by the player they paid 85 million euros to Borussia Dortmund: “On the last market day, Cristiano Ronaldo arrived and that ruined all his work. Everything was thrown away because Manchester United did not become a better team because of him. With Ronaldo you could no longer play the counterattack, for which they hired Sancho. This season, Bruno Fernandes, last year’s best player, barely touched the ball and everything went against Solskjaer “
Finally, he lowered the decibels and avoided arguing with the main figure of a team that is eighth in the Premier League with 17 points in 12 rounds, 12 behind leaders Chelsea and that their classification is played to the next instance of the Champions League this Tuesday against Villarreal with an interim coach (Michael Carrick): “Don’t get me wrong, Ronaldo is one of the best players in the world but he is the Achilles heel of this team. He is a legend, but Manchester United have to play as a team to win titles, they don’t need anyone to score 20 goals ”.
