Former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is a legend for the club and the best ever the Premier League has had.
The 79-year-old is still very passionate about the club and wants the club to still be at the top. However, it has been suggested that Ferguson isn’t happy with Solskjaer’s decision making against Everton.
United missed an opportunity to climb to the top of the league as they played out a 1-1 draw with Everton over the weekend.
Solskjaer faced massive criticism for dropping star man Cristiano Ronaldo to the bench as he rotated his squad for that game. It was a move that backfired as United could only get a point against the Toffees.
Asked whether he regretted his decision to bench Ronaldo against Everton, Solskjaer claimed it was the right call as he said: “No!
“You make decisions throughout a long, long season and you have to manage the players workload and the decision for me was the correct one.
“Anthony Martial came in and did well, scored a good goal. Edinson needed minutes, he got an hour and could have had a goal. It was a great cross and good chance for him. We have to make those decisions at times.”
Meanwhile, Ferguson is of the opinion that Solskjaer should always start his best players. Ferguson had told MMA legend Khabib Nurmagomedov that ‘you should always start your best players’.
Ferguson was filmed talking to Khabib at Old Trafford after Saturday’s game and said: “But I also think that they [Everton] saw Ronaldo wasn’t playing…”
Khabib replied: “Yeah, but he came on in the second half…”
And the Manchester United legend responded: “I know but you should always start with your best players.”
Meanwhile, Jesse Lingard has told fans and critics that the players too are human beings and not robots, as he revealed that so many off pitch incidents can affect players performance as well.
“I think people on the outside think we’re robots, but we’re human beings at the end of the day,” he said.
