The dismissal of José Mourinho was one of the most talked about topics of the week in England, and Wayne Rooney surprised to reveal that Manchester United made the right decision.
“Something had to change and it was good to fire him, obviously the relationship between the coaching staff and the players was not good, that was obvious,” said the striker.
Regarding the return of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to the cast of Old Trafford, the historic scorer of the “Red Devils” pointed out that “the atmosphere has already changed, it also helps the return of Mick Phelan, they are smiling, happy and that’s good for everyone in the club, it’s a good move they made. ”
It has even transcended that Alexis Sánchez bet 22,000 euros with Marcos Rojo to get fired. And from England have come to light the words of Paul Pogba after learning in the locker room of his dismissal: “He wanted to dupe me and put the fans against, has fucked the wrong footballer.”
The premiere of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on the bench of Manchester United was resolved with an overwhelming triumph in Cardiff, where his team conceded 5 goals. Former man and now technical Man U commented after the game
“Football is simple if you have good players, this is a formidable group, with simply incredible quality,” said Solskjaer at the BT Sport microphones. “It has been a tough week, with a lot of factors flying over the players, and they have responded brilliantly.”
Solskjaer formed a 4-3-3, with Marcus Rashford in the post of Romelu Lukaku, down for personal reasons. Paul Pogba, in conflict with the Portuguese coach, returned to the XI along with Phil Jones, Luke Shaw, and Anthony Martial, to the detriment of Eric Bailly, Matteo Darmian and Diogo Dalot.
