Jamie Redknapp sends Solskjaer words of advice after Liverpool thrashing


Jamie Redknapp has told Ole Gunnar Solskjaer why his star studed Man Utd side are not passing muster

United are eight points adrift of top-of-the-table Chelsea after nine games of the Premier League season.

The players are not listening to manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer - and it's all the Norwegian's fault. That is the verdict of former Liverpool captain Jamie Redknapp.

The Red Devils narrowly escaped a three-game in a row setback in the Champions League but crashed out of the Carabao Cup at the first time of asking.

Their latest results came worst as bitter rivals Liverpool scored five times unanswered in Old Trafford.

Redknapp believes there is no structure or organisation amongst the United squad and players are not listening to the Solskjaer.

A claim backed by reports that midfielder Paul Pogba ignored the manager's demands to not get sent off before his red card against Liverpool.

"When you look at Man Utd now as a team and an organisation, the defeat to Liverpool didn't surprise me at all," Redknapp told the Essential Football Podcast.

"Obviously the scoreline was something you wouldn't predict before the game, but I didn't expect anything other than a Liverpool win.

"When you look at the two sides, one is an organised, well-oiled machine and the other is a team full of quality players and individuals, but I don't think they've got a structure or organisation in place and it doesn't feel like they're playing for each other right now.

"The players are playing too individually, not collectively, and I do think that comes down a lot to the manager.

"It's a situation right now at Man Utd where players look like they're not taking information on board, and it certainly isn't working.

"I know there's talk about giving Ole more time but I don't know how you can say 'we're going to give a manager until the end of the season' when right now you can see everything is unravelling."

The former  Liverpool and Southampton midfielder added: "I've been in dressing rooms before when things aren't working for the manager and that's what it looks like to me.

"It looks like that dressing room, in the kindest way, it feels like it would be a bit of a holiday camp. I can't imagine Solskjaer is going in there pointing his finger telling players what they've got to do.

"Everything just seems too nice. Players are getting away with things and that's a recipe for disaster in football.

"They've bought themselves a bit of time but if they lose against Tottenham and then lose a couple more games, I'm sorry, but he can't stay."
