Rio Ferdinand wades in on Man Utd sacking Ole Gunnar Solskjaer from hospital bed | Football | Sport

Rio Ferdinand has admitted that things are not looking good for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Manchester United passed his thoughts on a hospital bed as he watched his old side get torn down by Liverpool on Sunday.

Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has joined the debate on whether or not to fire Ole Gunnar Solskjaer amid reports sticking to his job.

Liverpool’s 5-0 win at Old Trafford on Sunday hit the club hard from top to bottom.

Even fans have started turning on Solskjaer, with many voting with their feet at halftime as the stadium emptied as the clock ticked.

The Norwegian has often been supported by his old teammates who work as experts, including Gary Neville, Roy Keane and Ferdinand.

But even he could no longer defend his buddy and admitted that the Red Devils coach is not doing well.

“It doesn’t look good for us at the moment,” he said on his YouTube channel.

“Things have to change, but I would like to be a fly on this training ground now because there has to be arguments.

“The training will be lively and if not, something is wrong with the club because you don’t have the right people.

“At all the big clubs, the players look for answers to problems and you respond to the people on the training ground because all your pride is hurt.

“I’m not saying you go around hitting each other, but there is a growl that goes around this square when you are out there and I would want to see that reaction if I was the manager now.

“It’s hard to watch, hard to be a part of.”

Antonio Conte has been heavily linked with the takeover should Solskjaer be sacked as many believe this is the time to sack the manager.

But Ferdinand has insisted that his players need to do more to help the club in their current situation.

He added: “People are calling for Ole, etc., to be fired, that is up to the club to decide.

“I’m not saying managers have to be fired, etc.

“He’s got a fantastic group of players now, but the only problem is they don’t play as a team.

“That is a manager’s job and he has to find a way to do it. Players take responsibility, but you have to be prepared to perform at your best.”
