“He was my forward when I got to Manchester United and he has been my coach when I returned to the team. But most of all, he is an amazing human being. I wish you the best in whatever life has in store for you now. Good luck, friend, you deserve it, “said Cristiano.
The dismissal of Solskjaer ends three years of management of the Norwegian in Manchester, where he arrived to replace as interim coach Jose Mourinho in December 2018.
However, just three months later he was confirmed as a permanent coach and in his years in office he has led the ‘Red Devils’ to a runner-up in the Premier League, a third place and a final of the Europa League.
For Paul Merson, Arsenal legend, the culprit of everything is the Portuguese.
“I’m sorry for Solskjaer, because it was clear that they had a well-defined plan for the team, from the end of last season, when they finished second. In summer, they finally got Sancho and you could see what he wanted: Sancho on the one hand, Rashford on the other, Cavani picking up the leftovers, Greenwood joining the team … Youth, speed, dribbling and lots of energy! said the former player.
And he added: “Then, on the last market day, Cristiano Ronaldo arrives and that ruined everything. Everything went down the drain (…). With Ronaldo you can no longer play the counterattack. This season, Bruno has barely touched the ball. Don’t get me wrong, Ronaldo is one of the best players in the world, but he’s the Achilles heel of this team … “.
