Rival clubs fans in cheers as Rooney backs Solskjaer to stay put


Some rival Premier League clubs fans are happy to see Wayne Rooney leaping to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer defence amid intense pressure to quit job

Liverpool beat Manchester United 5-0 in the Premier League last week, and Wayne Rooney was not happy with the performance of the players at his old club.

Victory for Liverpool led to increasing pressure on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s services as manager, but as things stand the Norwegian remains in charge of the Reds' rivals.

Rooney left United in 2017, two years before Solskjaer took charge of the club on a permanent basis.

The Manchester United record goalscorer says it’s unfair for all blame  and criticism to be left for Solskjaer following the defeat to Liverpool, and believes the players have to take some responsibility.

"There are very educated people at the top of Manchester United," told the Daily Mail .

"I’m sure they will be looking at everything to see how they move forward in the near future, whether that’s with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer or without.

“The players have to question themselves and look at themselves. It’s too easy for the manager to take all the stick when those players are being paid a lot of money to do the job and I don’t think they’re doing it well enough.

"There is a big responsibility on those players. They are world-class players, international players and a club like Manchester United need more. Those players need to feel hurt when they lose games.

"There are high demands at that club, high pressure, and I’m seeing too many players not willing to run back, not willing to defend, not willing to put everything on the line and that’s not acceptable.

"Are you telling me that’s the manager’s fault or the players’ fault? I don't know."
