Emery’s message over Solskjaer
Man United head into the game on the back of a pretty dismal run of form in all competitions.
The Red Devils would lose their opening Champions League bout of the season earlier this month, blowing a 1-0 lead to eventually lose 2-1 vs Swiss outfit Young Boys, who are arguably the worst side in United’s group.
Man United then faced off with West Ham in a Premier League game, which they only scrapped a 2-1 win in thanks to a late Jesse Lingard strike and Mark Noble missing a penalty.
Since then, the Manchester side would be knocked out of the League Cup vs West Ham and then fall to a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Aston Villa this past weekend.
Said results have put a fair amount of pressure on Solskjaer, especially when you realise that Man United would bring in all of Raphael Varane, Jadon Sancho and Cristiano Ronaldo over the summer.
However, as mentioned above, Villarreal boss Unai Emery has sent a message to United over OGS, stating that, though Solskjaer has had some negative results, it would not be wise for the club to change the vision they have for the head coach:
“He was in the Champions League last year and reached the Europa League final.
“This year he has many challenges ahead and it is true that he has had some negative results, but it wouldn’t be wise for the club to change the vision they have for the head coach.”
