Solskjaer identifies player who caused him most problems as Man Utd manager

Former Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed the player who caused him the most problems during his time as manager at Old Trafford.

Recall that Solskjaer was sacked as Man United manager during the 2021/22 season.

The Norwegian failed to win a single piece of silverware during his time in charge of Man United.

But his team did reach the final of the Europa League, only losing on penalties to Villarreal.

Speaking about his time at Man United, Solskjaer said former Liverpool striker Roberto Firmino caused him the most problems as manager.

“In my last season, we played Liverpool at home,” Solskjaer told The Athletic.

“I felt the players were ready for it, just like I’d felt they were ready when we’d gone to City and won. We could have sat back and countered, but my decision was to go for it.

“We lost 5-0. It was 50/50, more or less, in possession and chances at half-time, yet we were 4-0 down. I made the wrong decision and that was my lowest point as United manager by a mile.

“Roberto Firmino was probably the opposition player who caused me the most problems as a manager. The 6-1 defeat at home to Spurs was different and affected by a sending-off.”
