Calls by Manchester United fans for Solskjaer to be sack for opting to rest talisman Cristiano Ronaldo despite his good form is not good for a club like Manchester United. One thing many Manchester United fans forgot to understand is that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is the manager of the club and he alone knows which player is at their best to represent the club. 36-year-old Ronaldo is no longer a young, vibrant player.
The coach and his staff know which player performed well during training, he is the one with them. While it's not out of place for supports of any club to make their feeling know, they should at least give the coach some benefit of the doubt for bringing them this far.
Cristiano Ronaldo might be a returning hero, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's decision should be the final when it comes to matters of the club. It is not easy to coach a big club like Manchester United, and the vast majority of United fans who are furious won't understand how much work the coach has invested to bring out a squad list every weekend.
Ex-Manchester United defender turned Sports Pundits Rio Ferdinand best explained the situation as he backed the embattled Manchester United boss.
Speaking while on air in the BT Sport studio Rio said: '𝘠𝘰𝘶 𝘳𝘦𝘴𝘵 𝘙𝘰𝘯𝘢𝘭𝘥𝘰 𝘢𝘵 𝘵𝘪𝘮𝘦𝘴, 𝘩𝘦’𝘥 𝘦𝘹𝘱𝘦𝘤𝘵 𝘪𝘵 𝘢𝘵 36. 𝘕𝘢𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯𝘢𝘭 𝘵𝘦𝘢𝘮 𝘨𝘢𝘮𝘦𝘴 𝘢𝘧𝘵𝘦𝘳 𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘴. 𝘩𝘦’𝘴 𝘣𝘳𝘪𝘯𝘨𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘪𝘯 [𝘌𝘥𝘪𝘯𝘴𝘰𝘯] 𝘊𝘢𝘷𝘢𝘯𝘪, 𝘴𝘰𝘮𝘦𝘰𝘯𝘦’𝘴 𝘸𝘩𝘰 𝘨𝘰𝘵 𝘨𝘰𝘢𝘭𝘴 𝘭𝘢𝘴𝘵 𝘴𝘦𝘢𝘴𝘰𝘯 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘸𝘩𝘰’𝘴 𝘢 𝘭𝘦𝘢𝘥𝘦𝘳. 𝘔𝘰𝘳𝘦 𝘴𝘶𝘳𝘱𝘳𝘪𝘴𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘪𝘴 𝘵𝘩𝘢𝘵 [𝘑𝘦𝘴𝘴𝘦] 𝘓𝘪𝘯𝘨𝘢𝘳𝘥 𝘥𝘦𝘴𝘦𝘳𝘷𝘦𝘴 𝘢 𝘴𝘵𝘢𝘳𝘵.'
Every since his return Ronaldo has scored five goals in five games, but what if he gets injured out of lack of proper management. The Portuguese won't continue his blistering momentum if he starts slowing down with the club that needs him the most. Ole has tried to manage the best way any coach can, agitations by fans can be well understood but the league only just getting started.
