Spades of Manchester United fans have called for the immediate sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after the side’s defeat to RB Leipzig knocked them out of the Champions League.
As they’ve failed at the Group Stages hurdle, despite being top before today’s final round of fixtures started, they will still have some European football as they’ll drop down to the Europa League.
Angelino’s game-winning contribution makes the defeat even worse for United, as their noisy neighbours will be the only ones celebrating this evening.
Justin Kluivert then made it 3-0 in the 69th minute after some questionable goalkeeping from David de Gea. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men made an impact late on once more, but this wasn’t enough tonight.
United were awarded a penalty after a respectfully soft call, which Bruno Fernandes converted, before a contribution from substitute Paul Pogba led to Harry Maguire scoring a second just minutes later.
Here’s how some of the United faithful have reacted to the performance:
Yup in form Pogba dropped yet he scored a goal and created a chance Ole is a clown

In the morning
Get it done
Bring in a real manager

Cant help but think… What if we Lukaku? A striker (albeit his poor touch at times) that seemed to know where the goal is. Still cannot fathom selling him and not replacing him.

You might want to start showing up from kickoff and not the 70th minute ?

An absolute disgrace.

Absolutely embarrassing. Top of the group earlier and now we’re out.

Disgrace of a manager and team.

United lost to each of their Group Stage opponents – Paris Saint-Germain, Istanbul Basaksehir and RB Leipzig once each – which proved to be costly.
After a mixed start in the Premier League has left the Old Trafford outfit sixth as things stand, they’ve now subjected themselves to having to play on Thursdays in the Europa League with tonight’s result.
Solskjaer’s position will be under serious question after tonight’s result, hopefully if he is relieved of his duties, it doesn’t tarnish the legend he cemented in Manchester as a player – but it may be too late.
