Some Manchester United players and staff were in tears after Saturday’s humiliating 4-1 defeat against Watford. United were dismantled by the newly-promoted side at Vicarage Road, with many of the dressing room now expecting the club to sack Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The Hornets outfought Solskjaer’s spineless side, who have tasted defeat in five of their last seven Premier League outings.

Josh King, Ismaila Sarr, Joao Pedro and Emmanuel Dennis all found the net on one of Solskjaer’s darkest days as manager yet.

Donny van de Beek’s consolation goal off the bench was somewhat fitting, given the prolonged reluctance to offer him opportunities since his arrival last summer.

And emotions were running high in the dressing room as the squad reflected on another dire display.

According to the Manchester Evening News, some players and members of Solskjaer’s coaching staff were crying after the defeat.

Many players now expect Solskjaer to be shown the door, following reports suggesting he has lost the belief of his squad.

And The Times claim the Glazers have told club officials to intensify their efforts to lure Zinedine Zidane to Old Trafford.

United may look to persuade the three-time Champions League-winning boss with an improved financial package.
