Man United: Fans blast Solskjaer as 'embarrassing' clip from first half in Leicester defeat emerges


Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is under serious pressure to turn it around at Manchester United.

The Red Devils made it three Premier League games without a win in Saturday's 4-2 humbling at the hands of Leicester City.

"We need to find what's the problem," Solskjaer said after the defeat, which leaves United sixth in the table.

That was, presumably, something that the Norwegian could have attempted to do during the international break.

If he found something to explain United's worrying lack of form during the break, the resolution wasn't on display at the King Power Stadium.


Ole: 'We need to be more mature'

After recovering from 2-1 down, Solskjaer's side crumbled in the final stages of the match, conceding late goals to Jamie Vardy and Patson Daka.

“To concede goals, easy goals, you can say stupid goals, when we know those games when we play on this pitch the fans are going to push, going to put pressure on us and everything," Solskjaer added in his post-match analysis.

“We need to be more mature, I think. We need to play with more experience, arrogance in a good term, meaning that we have to take the ball and play our football."

United's embarrassing effort levels

However, what will most concern the United boss won't be the reaction to Marcus Rashford's equaliser, but the effort level of his players much earlier in the game.

A clip from the first half of Saturday's match has been shared on Twitter and it shows United's players putting in very, very little effort while Leicester controlled possession.

The score was 1-1 at the time, but you'd be forgiven for thinking that Leicester were just seeing out the final few minutes of an easy 4-0 win.

There's no attempt from United to win the ball back as Leicester comfortably pass the ball around in midfield.


The clip lasts more than one minute, but United don't even get close to the ball. The Foxes eventually work it to Kelechi Iheanacho but the Nigerian drags his shot wide.

Simply embarrassing.

Man United fans react

The clip has sparked a lot of reaction from United's supporters, many of whom are keen for a change in manager.

For a team that has aspirations of winning major trophies, including the Premier League, that's just not going to cut it.
