MORNING UNITED FANS
Cristiano Ronaldo is preparing for new twins – but there’s no kidding about over Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s future.
United legend Ron announced partner Georgina Rodriguez is expecting his fifth and sixth child.
But manager Solskjaer could have far less to cheer about if United fail at Tottenham tomorrow.
And former Chelsea chief Antonio Conte is reportedly ready to say ‘yes’ should the Red Devils come calling.
Gazzetta dello Sport also claim ex-Inter boss Conte would relish trying to get the best out of top names like Ronaldo, Paul Pogba, Mason Greenwood and Jadon Sancho.
The Old Trafford board’s backing for Solskjaer might break if United slump against Spurs in the Premier League and at Atalanta in the Champions League on Tuesday.
And skipper Harry Maguire is telling his team-mates to banish Sunday’s ’embarrassing’ 5-0 home loss to Liverpool to the past
He told ManUtd.com: “It’s a tough one to move on from but we need to move on.
“It’s been a tough week obviously, you can’t just brush these things aside, especially when you lose to your rivals.
“We’ve obviously had big discussions. We know as a group of players we need to make sure we’re together and we’re positive… as a group and a club.”
But Sky Sports pundit Jamie Redknapp claims United’s dressing room is ‘like a holiday camp’ and that Solskjaer can’t have the rest of the season to turn their crumbling fortunes around.
The ex-Liverpool midfielder told the Essential Football Podcast: “The players are playing too individually, not collectively, and I do think that comes down a lot to the manager.
“Everything is unravelling… When you look at Man Utd now as a team and an organisation, the defeat to Liverpool didn’t surprise me at all.”
Finally, the Red Devils are tipped to vie with Liverpool for Leeds’ England midfielder Kalvin Phillips next summer.
