English Premier League (EPL) Manchester United (Man United) key defender Harry Maguire (28, England) emphasized that players should also be held accountable for the manager’s sack.
Manchester United sacked manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on the 21st. Solskjaer stepped down from Manchester United’s managerial position after about three years since taking the helm in December 2018. Poor sexual performance was the hard cause. After losing successively to rivals such as Liverpool (0-5) and Manchester City (0-2), they also lost 1-4 to Watford.
While the manager has been sacked, United will play Group F of the 2021-22 season UEFA Champions League Group F to be held at the Estadio de La Seramica in Villarreal, Castellon, Spain on the 24th (Korean time). They will face Villarreal in the second leg. Manchester United will be coached by coach Michael Carrick.
Maguire attended a press conference ahead of the match against Villarreal. “We had a lot of respect for Solskjaer,” Maguire said. It is a very difficult time for us as a player because of the things that[Solskjaer]has done for us while staying here for two years and six months.”
Maguire continued, “We went to an away game together. It’s not at all nice to see someone leave the team. “It’s a very difficult feeling,” he said. Unfortunately, Solskjaer paid the price alone. Athletes have a big responsibility.”
After the sacking, Solskjaer also revealed a message. He said, “Solskjaer said he would support us and wish us well. “He said we need to get on the right track and focus on Villarreal,” he said in a message to the squad. .
