Man United

The decision by Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to give everyone a week off during the international break has left many at the club perplexed.

United are stuck in a rut, with defeats to Liverpool and Manchester City leaving Solskjaer’s career dangling by a thin thread.

There is definitely a lot of work to be done at Old Trafford, but according to the Daily Mail, Solskjaer has decided not to keep his players at the training facility and instead has granted everyone, including the staff, a week off.

Many in the dressing room are said to have been perplexed by his choice, with many players believing that the group could have benefited from some extra shifts together as they try to recover.

Solskjaer was photographed at Manchester Airport with his family before boarding a private plane to return to his hometown of Kristiansund.

Many of United’s big names have left for international duty, but there are still plenty of players who have stayed at Carrington.

Dean Henderson, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Donny van de Beek, and Anthony Martial, for example, were scheduled to work extra shifts over the next two weeks but were instead sent home for seven days to recuperate and relax.

They will meet again next week, when Solskjaer will begin preparations for the trip to Watford on November 20 – a game in which he is likely to remain in command after meeting with the club’s hierarchy following Saturday’s humiliating 2-0 loss to Manchester City.

Co-chairman Joel Glazer will make the final choice on Solskjaer’s future, and there are no hints that he will make a change in the dugout.
