Revealed: The Solskjaer team talk Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo was left ‘aghast’ by
An insight into Cristiano Ronaldo’s view of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as Manchester United manager has been provided recently.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was officially sacked by Manchester United earlier this month.
The Norwegian left the club after a pretty humiliating defeat at the hands of relegation-threatened Watford.
The Watford loss, though, was just the tip of the iceberg, with Manchester United already well off the pace in the Premier League, out of the League Cup and putting in some less than convincing displays in the Champions League.
Why Ronaldo was left aghast by Solskjaer
One of Manchester United’s most embarrassing showings under Solskjaer this season came in their first Champions League game of the campaign.
United failed to make it into the knockout rounds of the competition last term, and though they have since done so thanks to a 2-0 win over Villarreal with Michael Carrick in the dugout, the way they started their campaign suggested this would not happen.
The Red Devils were drawn in a group with Young Boys, Atalanta and Villarreal.
Of said trio, Young Boys were clearly the weakest side and it was expected United would pick up wins in both meetings with the Swiss outfit.
However, Man United actually lost their opening bout against them by two goals to one.
Following the game, the Mirror, citing The Times, have revealed that Cristiano Ronaldo has left aghast by Solskjaer’s post-Young Boys team talk:
Cristiano Ronaldo was left aghast by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after the former Manchester United manager delivered a baffling team talk.
The report adds that Solskjaer told his players he was ‘really happy’ with their efforts against YB and that he ‘liked the way they played’.
Ronaldo is said to have not been able to get his head around OGS’ post-match team talk and is believed to have challenged him by branding the performance ‘awful’:
