Manchester United fans vented their frustrations on with the club’s owners and executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward during FA Cup fourth round which resulted to United team thrashing Tranmere 6-0 on Sunday.
This came after United surprisingly lost 2-0 to Burnley at Old Trafford in premier league on Wednesday for the first time since 1962.
According to reports from frujusports.com.ng, calls were made for Solskjaer to be sacked but the club continued to support the manager with faith he will improve on Sunday’s FA Cup fourth round against Tranmere.
Their faith was justified as Solskjaer led the team to thrash Tranmere a whooping 6-0, three goals within the first 16 minutes by Harry Maguire, Diogo Dalot and Jesse Lingard.
Phil Jones and Anthony Martial scored in the 41st and 45th minutes respectively before Mason Greenwood completed the sixth goal with a penalty in the 56th minute to lead United to the fifth round.
This is the first time United scored six goals since 2011 when Alex Ferguson was manager.
Still, United fans weren’t satisfied as they chanted their displeasure against the Glazer family and Woodward, who was not at the game, with “We’re Man Utd, we’ll sing what we want”.
Their anger came from the fact that Woodward and co have not invested in the team, especially in the current transfer window with the team fifth in the Premier League and in obvious need of reinforcements yet no signings have been made so far.
Solskjaer, who still enjoys fans’ goodwill inspite of everything, spoke to BBC Sports after the game:
“A lot has been said and written about this pitch. We played it well. We didn’t want to make it a long-ball fight – we got the ball down and scored nice goals.
“We have good footballers. They give everything in every game.
“It’s important we spread goals through the team. We’ve lost Marcus [Rashford] for a little while. Our two strikers scored – it is a confidence boost for everyone.
“You can see everyone wanted us to fail but it doesn’t bother me. I can’t be up and down [emotionally]. I’m happy but won’t relax. There are two big games coming up.”
Meanwhile, United travel to Manchester City for the second leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final on Wednesday while Tranmere host Sunderland on the same night in League One.
