Solskjaer “WILL NOT be fired under Woodward”, Brozovic free transfer wanted, Cristiano Ronaldo update
MORNING, UNITED FANS
Antonio Conte is still looming in the background despite Manchester United’s 3-0 win at Tottenham.
Cristiano Ronaldo and Edinson Cavani have eased the pressure on Old Trafford boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with their new striking partnership and a brilliant goal each.
But Solskjaer will be under fire again if United fail at Atalanta in the Champions League tomorrow night.
And ex-Chelsea boss Conte is said to be high on the Red Devils and Spurs wishlists.
Conte, however, is said to be willing to bide his time for a new job until the summer, having left Inter Milan after winning Serie A last season.
Ronaldo kindly stole United’s opener on Saturday before his skillful rotation and complex pass created an equally elegant finish for Cavani.
Dropped out Marcus Rashford, Ronaldo went on to complete United’s redemptive victory, six days after Liverpool’s 5-0 win at Old Trafford.
But Ron, 36, insisted the flak United faced was ‘normal’ for such a massive club.
He told Sky Sports: “The criticism is so big, it’s always there. I don’t mind, I know one day we’re perfect and another day we’re c ** p.”
“Sometimes life is like this and we have to go through the bad times.”
Finally, marginal midfielder Donny van de Beek is once again linked with Arsenal.
The Dutch star was due to leave last summer, with a loan transfer still possible in January
