Manchester United: Alan Shearer says players have ‘lost respect’ for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer amid Watford defeat

Alan Shearer has criticized coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, claiming that Manchester United players have lost respect for him after their 4-1 loss to Watford on Saturday.

The Red Devils were impressed by humble Watford thanks to two goals in each half by the Hornets, in a result that has Norwegian coach Solskjaer on the brink of capture.

United goalkeeper David de Gea called his team’s display “embarrassing” and said “we don’t know what to do with the ball,” a statement Shearer highlighted about how bad things have gotten at Old Trafford.

“It’s pretty clear from his attitude and his performance that the players don’t want the coach,” Shearer told Match of the Day on Saturday. They have stopped running for manager. They have lost respect for the coach.

‘And when you have a player who comes out and says they don’t know what to do with the ball, they really lie and the coach’s feet because that’s not a plan or a tactic.

“But the players can go out, they can run, they can have fun and they can have an attitude, but there was none of that. So that tells you what they think of the manager. ‘

The result means that Solskjaer’s United have failed to win five of their last seven Premier League games, a streak that includes a humiliating 5-0 home loss to Liverpool in October along with a 2-0 humiliation of their rivals Manchester City this month.

United fell to seventh in the top flight table, 12 points behind leaders Chelsea after 12 games, and could advance further in the league if Tottenham and Everton clinch victories on Sunday.

The Red Devils lost to a Watford team that had been beaten in four of their last five games, and the Hornets couldn’t find the net in any of those losses, but found themselves with a quick 2-0 lead through the goals from Joshua. King and Ismaila Sarr.

Half-time substitute Donny van de Beek halved the deficit just minutes after the half-time break, but United’s job became more difficult when Harry Maguire was sent off for a second cautioned offense.

Watford went wild in injury time thanks to goals from substitute Joao Pedro and forward Emmanuel Dennis to put the finishing touches on a memorable victory at Vicarage Road.

United goalkeeper De Gea, who saved a penalty from Sarr in the first half to limit the humiliation, was full of negative adjectives for the Red Devils ‘performance such as’ very poor ‘,’ low level ‘and’ nightmare after nightmare ‘.

“It was embarrassing to see Man United play like we did,” De Gea said. “The way we played and did things is not acceptable.

“It’s easy to blame the coach or the staff, but sometimes it’s the players. We need to show much more of what we are doing. Shameful first half: we could have conceded four goals in 45 minutes.

“It was difficult watching the team play today, it was nightmare after nightmare after nightmare. Is not acceptable.

“I have had difficult moments with this club, but we are in a difficult situation, we don’t know what to do with the ball. It’s a horrible time. We are trying to do our best and fight for the team, but surely something is very wrong. You can see in the games: it is very low level, very poor. I feel sorry for the fans, once again.

‘There are difficult moments and we have to be strong in body and mind. They pay us to play for United and do better. This is not Manchester United or the way we should play, it’s hard to say more than that. ‘

Jamie Carragher, meanwhile, claimed there is now a way back for under fire boss Solskjaer after the result, but he also pointed to some of the “embarrassing” performances by United players.

“I have not been a coach, but if you have a crop of those players, and I don’t care what they tell me, Manchester United have quality players, you cannot lose to Watford 4-1. You can not ‘ said on Sky Sports.

It doesn’t matter how the coach has prepared you, if he has a presence in the dressing room, if the players respect him or not, who knows?

“ Regardless of how you set them up, those players – some of the performances they’ve given this season are an absolute disgrace. That is one of the most expensive templates in world football. One of the highest paid squads in world football. ‘

Meanwhile, Solskjaer refused to discuss the possibility of being fired after the Watford loss, but hinted at some sort of communication with the Red Devils hierarchy.

“I am working for and with the club and have been doing it for 18 years,” Solskjaer said in his post-match interview. “We have good communication and if the club was thinking of doing something, that is between the club and me.”
