Michael Owen reacts to Manchester United defeat and gives Solskjaer verdict

Manchester United’s defeat to Watford was another humiliation, and one too many for fans to stomach.

To lose 4-1 at the Hornets was a disgrace, with United’s under performing captain Harry Maguire sent off for good measure.

Former United forward Michael Owen says he is of the firm belief Solskjaer has to go.

Owen wrote that he felt Solskjaer’s sacking would be imminent.

The Times reported last night that United were set to hold an emergency board meeting over Solskjaer’s future, and The MEN claimed a decision had been made to fire the boss – although yet to be made official.

Speaking after the game, Solskjaer had told the club website he was hopeful of leading United to bounce back.

He said: “I always have belief in myself but, of course, at the moment it’s a difficult time for us. I can trust every single one out there to give what they have, the staff are fantastic but the results at the moment, are difficult, of course. Yeah, I believe we can turn this around.”

The problem is that Solskjaer has been saying he is going to turn it around for weeks. And he can’t.

United are stuck in a deep rut and the players clearly have lost belief, in themselves, and in the coaches.

Whatever is being said behind the scenes, it is not working, and it is time to move on from Solskjaer and try a new approach.
