Roy Keane warns Solskjaer players will get him sacked after disgraceful display
Manchester United ’s players will ultimately get Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sacked, Roy Keane has warned his former team-mate.
The Red Devils were thumped 6-1 by Tottenham at Old Trafford in their third Premier League match of the 2020/21 season on Sunday.
And it left the club in crisis heading into the international break after a dismal summer in the transfer market too.
Deadline Day on Monday saw Edinson Cavani and Alex Telles brought in, but neither was a top target of Solskjaer’s.
The manager had made clear to Ed Woodward how he wanted Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho, but no deal was ever agreed after a prolonged pursuit.
The saga highlighted the disarray behind the scenes at Old Trafford, and after clinching third spot in the Premier League post-lockdown, the disappointment has now transpired onto the pitch.
Home defeats to Crystal Palace and Spurs have not set United up well for the new campaign.
And Daily Star Sport understands long-term target Mauricio Pochettino has been sounded out to replace Solskjaer, who has until November to prove he deserves to stay.

Keane is not surprised if the players are turning on the Norwegian, as he outlines many did the same to former boss Jose Mourinho, who’s Tottenham side humiliated them at the weekend.
Speaking on ITV ahead of England’s game with Wales at Wembley, Keane said: “The performance against Spurs was disgraceful.
“We’ve all had bad days, but I thought it was a disgrace to the badge some performances.
“Too many bluffers and ultimately I think they will cost Ole his job.
“The players he’s got there, they through the previous manager under the bus, they’ll do exactly the same to Ole.”
Solskjaer’s team are next in action in nine days when they travel to St James’ Park to take on Newcastle on Saturday, October 17.
United currently sit 16th in the Premier League table, having won just once thanks to their last-minute winner at Brighton from the penalty spot.
