The latest reports have it that Ole Gunner Solskjaer is not a happy man and the source of his frustrations comes from two players he so much believed in – Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial.
The ‘duo’ are tasked with scoring goals for Manchester United, and according to Ole Gunner he had hoped the players would perform and shine to be able to replace the stars they ‘offloaded,’ – Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku, recently transferred to the Red Devils’.
However, an article by The Athletic mentions that the boss is becoming increasingly worried, and rumors associate this to the decision.
In precise, the 46-year old boss did not take lightly last weekend’s 4-0 game against Chelsea at Old Trafford. This followed after last month’s disheartening performance, where the United saw another 0-1loss to Crystal Palace. The fans have it that this could have been the start of Solskjaer fears in the duo, which has been consistent evidence of their poor finishing strategies, despite getting exceptional chances.
The talk by fans now is that the decision Solskjaer and the team’s management made to offload Lukaku and Sanchez in the name of growing a new force of younger players is backfiring faster than not. Saddest of all which also is contrary to expectations, Rashford is yet to record a single score since his brace against Chelsea.
However, with Mario Mandzukic still with the team after his planned transfer deal to Juventus failed there is certainly some hope or light at the end of the tunnel.
Top on that, Anthony recently hinted that together with Rashford they have decided to work overtime to improve their image. “During the training, we compete against each other and reward whoever scores the most goals,” he said.
