Wayne Rooney believes that Man Utd players must question themselves for their performances under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The former United legend has come under pressure for the team’s poor performances in the Premier League including a 5-0 loss to rivals Liverpool. They currently lie in seventh place in the Premier League table despite the high-profile signings of Cristiano Ronaldo, Raphael Varane, and Jadon Sancho. Solskjaer has been faced with a lot of pressure whether he has been picking the right line-ups.
“There is a big responsibility on those players. They are world-class players, international players and a club like United needs more,” Man Utd legend Wayne Rooney said. “Those players need to be hurt, need to feel when you lose games how much it hurts you. I’m seeing too many players not willing to run back, not willing to defend, and not willing to put everything on the line for that club and that’s not acceptable.”
“United are going through a difficult period – a difficult couple of weeks,” he added. “The Liverpool game wasn’t easy to watch but that’s football. Liverpool is a fantastic team, similar to United in world-class players, with probably the best player in the world at the minute in Mo Salah but the big difference is they are working off the ball. That’s the only difference. Obviously, there’s pressure on Ole – everyone can see that. But I know Ole and he’s a fighter. He’ll keep doing the right things, believing in what he believes in, and trying to get more out of those players.”
