Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay has claimed that he still believes in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer despite Man United’s poor start to the season.
The Red Devils have endured mixed performances this season, losing two of their opening three Premier League matches.
After losing their opening fixture 3-1 to Crystal Palace at Old Trafford, Solskjaer’s men reacted superbly after they won three matches in a row in all competitions.
Just when many thought the Reds had finally found their feet following their three-game winning streak, Manchester United succumbed to a 6-1 defeat to Tottenham at the Theatre of Dreams in the Premier League and a lot have been said.
Reports emerged last weekend that Bruno Fernandes, who was substituted at half-time against Tottenham, questioned Solskjaer’s tactics during half-time talks but recent reports in Portugal have rubbished those claims.
The hefty defeat has also increased pressure on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to improve Man United’s result and several reports claim Manchester United chiefs have contacted Mauricio Pochettino about replacing the Norwegian at United.
Several reports claim the players have lost confidence in Solskjaer but TV2, a Norwegian outlet, claim the underperforming manager still has the full support of his players as they revealed some telling comments McTominay made following the thumping defeat to Spurs.
‘The whole club is behind him,’ Scott McTominay said.
‘We believe in every word he says, and it’s not just him.
‘We trust every word from Mike Phelan, Kieran McKenna, Michael Carrick and the entire support staff.’
Man United will return to action on Saturday when they face Newcastle United away from home in the Premier League.
