Jamie Redknapp has described Manchester United’s dressing room as a “holiday camp” after their resounding 5-0 loss to rivals Liverpool.

Television expert Redknapp has made a scathing criticism of the United manager, stating that he is “too nice” and that he should be fired if they lose their next two games.
The former Liverpool and Tottenham midfielder said in his column about Sky sports: ‘I’ve been backstage before when things don’t work out for the coach and that’s what I think.
“ It looks like that dressing room, in the kindest way, it feels like it’s a vacation camp. I can’t imagine Solskjaer going there pointing a finger telling the players what to do.
Everything looks too pretty. Players are getting away with it and that’s a recipe for disaster in soccer.

They’ve bought themselves a bit of time, but if they lose to Tottenham and then lose a couple more games, I’m sorry, but they can’t stay.
“It is difficult because he is Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, of course he is a very respected figure in the club. I said two years ago, it will be like shooting Bambi. But sometimes you have to look at what is best for the team. Even he will see it and say, ‘I can’t keep my job under these circumstances.’
United’s next three games against Tottenham, Atalanta and Manchester City are likely to determine Solskjaer’s prospects.
Their loss to Liverpool is just the latest in a series of poor results, with the Red Devils losing to Aston Villa and drawing against Everton at Old Trafford, before being outscored by Leicester, who beat them 4-2 at King Power. Stadium.
United’s poor start to the season comes despite the return of world-class star Cristiano Ronaldo, as well as the signings of Raphael Varane and Jadon Sancho.
Ajax’s Antonio Conte, Zinedine Zidane, Brendan Rodgers and Erik ten Hag are among the names who have been linked to work at Old Trafford, should the club decide to fire Solskjaer.
