Manchester United is not a happy place all of a sudden. How can it be after a 5-0 loss to Liverpool?

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is fighting for his future as manager.

And seemingly a few of the players are ready to embrace change.

ESPN report players are losing faith in Solskjaer and there has been frustration with his tactics and team selection behind the scenes.

Former star Gary Neville is not impressed at all.

Neville’s tweet suggests the players are in self preservation mode, and are looking to shift the blame entirely onto Solskjaer.

Solskjaer has large fault here, no doubt. And the point referenced about the lack of link up between Mason Greenwood and Cristiano Ronaldo is a valid one.

 

But the motivation and reasoning for these leaks is concerning to Neville.

It suggests a group of players unable or unwilling to accept their responsibility for the shambles of performance.

The situation is not a good look. It shows a split dressing room, and players losing faith in Solskjaer, and this is going to be near impossible for the manager to fix.

United are being pushed nearer to making a change. Once the manager loses the dressing room, it’s over.

But its not the end. As Neville notes, United’s failure belongs to the men above Solskjaer more so than the manager.
