Manchester United are in crisis after their latest defeat to Newcastle. Express Sport brings you all the latest developments from Old Trafford with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer under pressure.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sack latest
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is running out of time to turn the club’s fortunes around, according to Martin Keown.
“You start to look at where the system is, where the intensity is, and I think the belief now is ebbing away,” Keown said.
“I think this could be the beginning of the end for this manager.
“I don’t want to see a former player come in and leave the job.
“But there has to be a spark, there has to be a reaction.
“It seems to be just spiralling out of control at Manchester United at the moment, that was a really poor result today.”
Man Utd need to spend £300m
Lee Sharpe has told Manchester United they need to spend £300million and sign someone like Tottenham striker Harry Kane.
“I think you are looking at least £300million,” Sharpe told talkSPORT.
“You need someone like a Harry Kane for £200m/£220m that is going to score you 25 goals a season and you’ve got a different outlook in the team.
“So it is not going to be a cheap one.
“It’s difficult to keep up with the likes of Man City and Liverpool when they’ve set such high standards.
“You’ve got to stop comparing this team to Liverpool and City and great United teams of the past.
“They need to be given the chance to grow and educate themselves and become potentially what they could be in a year or 18 months’ time.”
Mason Greenip 99wood injured
Manchester United striker Mason Greenwood has handed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer another injury blow.
The youngster has pulled out of the England Under-21 squad with a back problem.
A statement on United’s website read: “Manchester United striker Mason Greenwood has been forced to withdraw from the England Under-21 squad.
“The 18-year-old, who made his debut at that level against Turkey last month, had been selected for the upcoming games against Slovenia and Austria.
“He came on as a second-half substitute in the Reds’ 1-0 defeat to Newcastle United on Sunday but has pulled out of coach Aidy Boothroyd’s group due to a back problem.”
