Man Utd legend Robson comments on Solskjaer

Man Utd legend Bryan Robson has criticised the club’s players as it “looked like [they] didn’t care” in their 5-0 defeat to Liverpool on Sunday.

The Red Devils have had a difficult start to the 2021/22 season. Cristiano Ronaldo has scored two late winners in the Champions League group stages as they have six points from their three games.

But they are without a win in their last four games in the Premier League. This run includes a draw against Everton and defeats to Aston Villa and Leicester City.

Their latest result was an embarrassing 5-0 loss at the hands of Liverpool. Mohamed Salah scored a hat-trick as Jurgen Klopp’s side picked up their biggest ever win at Old Trafford.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is under a lot of pressure at the moment. Former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has been mentioned as a possible replacement. 

But it has been reported that the key Man Utd directors are still supporting Solskjaer.

Robson has told talkSPORT that Solskjaer must turn things “around quickly”:

“Man United, as a club, we always give people a fair chance. Ole has now got to turn it around quickly.

“We can’t have too many more performances like that. Especially against the biggest opposition in the world for Man United.

“You can’t have performances like that and we need to turn it around quickly.

“These players have done it, been to cup finals, but to put in performances like that when you think the club is going forward was a real shock to the system. It was really poor.

“Last season, I thought Ole had got us going well. We had a poor start, but went on this long run without getting beaten away from home.

“You thought we were looking solid at the back, then the forwards we brought in like Ronaldo, you thought we were going forward.

“But it looked like we didn’t care and that’s really disappointing for the fans.

“Defensively, we were getting cut apart every time Liverpool attacked us. You couldn’t pick out one thing we did well.”
