United fans react to Eric Bailly reportedly challenging Solskjaer
The pressure is ramping up on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. His job as never looked less secure.
We are at the stage now where multiple reports are emerging detailing the problems at Manchester United.
Players who have not been playing recently are understandably disgruntled and the Telegraph have published a report on United’s ‘dressing room unrest’.
They claim that Eric Bailly has not been impressed with the way Harry Maguire has been rushed back into the side after his injury.
Maguire played against his former club Leicester on the back of one training session and was way below par as United lost 4-2.
Bailly apparently openly challenged Solskjaer after that defeat and asked the him ‘why he picked a centre-half who was not fit’.
The Ivorian was reportedly one of several players to cast doubt on Solskjaer’s decisions before the 3-2 win over Atalanta.
The Athletic also report some United players have questioned the man-management involved in handing Bailly a new contract in the summer, before overlooking him when Maguire was injured.
Some United fans on Twitter feel that Bailly was within his rights to question the decision.
We wrote at the time that Solskjaer’s treatment of the Ivorian could make him consider a January exit.
We also said after the loss at Leicester that it is fair to question his man-management skills, especially regarding the players who often do not play.
Here is now the report went down on Twitter…

Ole offered him a contract extension though right? If so why keep him if you are not gong to trust and play him?— Benyam Ahferom (@BenyamAhferom) October 26, 2021

I’d of asked him the same tbf. Maguire was awful and clearly not ready, as still shown yesterday. Poor selection.— JLP FPL 🔴🇾🇪 (@jamesleachpoet) October 25, 2021
He has every right to demand his manager who overlooked him for a clearly unfit maguire.— Rohith (@sairohith4) October 26, 2021
It was all because of favoritism. I believe partnership of Bailly and Varane can be perfect for us.— john tiger (@johntiger88) October 25, 2021
