After returning to the club as manager, everything that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer touched turned to gold. The Norwegian could do no wrong in the early weeks of his reign at Old Trafford, winning games left, right and centre.
However, after getting the job on a permanent basis, United’s results took a turn for the worse, and their poor end to the season last year has carried into the current campaign.
The Red Devils find themselves with just five points from their opening four games, and Solskjaer’s injury update at his pre-match press conference on Friday did nothing to lift the spirits.
The United boss confirmed the side would be missing a number of key players for the clash against Leicester, with the likes of Paul Pogba and Aaron Wan-Bissaka joining the lengthy injury list, although the latter is not definitely out.
After hearing the manager’s update, United fans took to Twitter to voice their concerns ahead of the match against the Foxes.
Many supporters of the Manchester side appeared to be in meltdown, and suggested they would be taking the “L”.
Some Red Devils fans went one step further, and said the season is already “doomed”, and that they should simply “liquidate” the club. Quite the reaction indeed.
