It has emerged that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was openly questioned by one of his own players following a recent defeat for Manchester United, according to the Telegraph (subscription required).
James Ducker damningly reports that Solskjaer, who is facing the sack after a dismal run highlighted by an embarrassing 5-0 defeat to heated rivals Liverpool, was challenged by Eric Bailly.
Bailly vented towards his under-fire boss after the decision to start Harry Maguire against Leicester, despite the Red Devils’ club captain having just one training session under his belt following a calf injury.
Maguire endured a nightmare against his former side, looking sloppy for three of the Foxes’ goals in the 4-2 defeat.
The Telegraph report that Bailly asked Solskjaer “why he picked a centre-half who was not fit” to face off against the east Midlands outfit, as the Ivorian questioned some of the boss’ choices before the shaky victory over Atalanta.
