'They don't know what they're doing' – Ian Wright slams coaching at Man Utd as Arsenal legend blames Solskjaer's tactics

ARSENAL legend Ian Wright has hit out at Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, claiming the Red Devils are not being coached properly.

Wright, 57, was highly critical of Solskjaer on Match of the Day 2 last night in the wake of Man Utd's 5-0 defeat to rivals Liverpool, blaming the Norwegian for their poor performance.

He said: "It wouldn't have mattered what midfield you put in there today because they're not for me looking like they're coached to press.

"It doesn't matter if it's Pogba, Matic, Fred, or McTominay, if you're going to sit off people and not go and close them to win the ball to then get it to people with pace like Greenwood and Rashford…

"If you're not coached to do that, then you will see mistakes from Maguire and Shaw, who we saw have an unbelievable Euros, because they're playing better and they're more coached, they know exactly what they need to be doing.

"But they don't look like they know what they're doing [at Man Utd]."

Hordes of fans took to social media last night to blame Solskjaer for the defeat, with many claiming it should be his last game in charge at the club.

@TheoUTD01 said: "Under no circumstances should any Manchester United manager ever survive losing at home 0-5 to Liverpool. It's all eyes on the board, Solskjær should be a closed case for the fans."

@utdfaithfuls added: "By now, hope it's common knowledge we finished 2nd last season because Liverpool had injuries and Chelsea got Tuchel late in the season.

"Despite having Ronaldo, Pogba, Bruno Fernandes, etc.. Solskjaer CANNOT compete with Pep, Klopp and Tuchel and it's a FACT."

But some leapt to Solskjaer's defence, including @jackyhenchman, who said: "You can be Ole Out and still be respectful towards Solskjaer as he at the end of the day is one of us and has done so much good for us off the pitch.

"He might not be the best tactical manager in the world but his love and legendary status at MUFC should never ever be questioned."

The Red Devils have a series of crucial games approaching as they take on Tottenham away on Saturday, followed by a trip to Italy next week to face Atalanta in the Champions League.

After failing to win their last four in the league, Solskjaer needs a run of much needed victories to turn things around, with another crunch tie against rivals Man City coming up on 6 November.

But with the pressure continuing to mount on the Norwegian, there is growing speculation linking managers such as Antonio Conte and Zinedine Zidane to the job at Old Trafford.
