Bruno Fernandes and Mason Greenwood pay tribute to Solskjaer
More Manchester United players have paid tribute to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer since his departure from the club was confirmed.
Star man Bruno Fernandes had particularly poignant words for the manager who signed him.
Fernandes says there is no bitterness on behalf of the players amid the poor result, and is grateful to Solskjaer for bringing him to United in the first place.
The Portuguese star was United’s top scorer last season, but unfortunately his form has slid off over the past few weeks, like several others.
Fernandes had kind words for Solskjaer as he followed Paul Pogba in reflecting on the manager’s departure.
Fernandes acknowledges there is plenty of blame to go around, as there should be amid the recent shocking results.
United have lost five of the last seven Premier League matches, gaining just four points since the win over West Ham in mid-September. A 4-1 loss at Watford was the final straw.
Mason Greenwood pays tribute
United youngster Mason Greenwood made his debut under Solskjaer back in 2019.
He has gone onto score more than 30 goals for the club since and establish himself as one of the most exciting young forward in world football.
Greenwood had a short tribute for Solskjaer in reflection on his departure.
Into the unknown
Both players are entering unchartered territory at Old Trafford.
Greenwood has never played under another United manager, although he did train under Jose Mourinho.
Fernandes has not known another United boss other than Solskjaer.
Both of them are going to have to work really hard to retain their importance to the team over the next 12 months.
They will each have to impress an interim boss and then a permanent boss, each of who may not care for reputation, and will give everybody a clean slate.
