Manchester United fans have called for the sacking of manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer following the Red Devils’ failure to win the Europa League title.
The Premier League side bowed 11-10 on penalties to Villarreal after the scores stood at 1-1 after extra time in Poland.
In the marathon shootout, David De Gea’s penalty was saved by Yellow Submarine’s keeper Geronimo Rulli who guessed the right way.
With this, the Old Trafford team finished the 2020-21 campaign without silverware. Though, they will be featuring in next season’s Champions League having finished second in the Premier League.
Since replacing Jose Mourinho on December 19, 2018, the Norwegian manager has failed to lead United to any title. With that in mind, the club’s fans have taken to Twitter to ask him to quit his role as they crave a new beginning.
In contrast, there are also Manchester United fans who have thrown their weight behind the embattled Red Devils legend while taking positives from the defeat to Villarreal. We have provided you with social media comments reflecting both views.
Manchester United have been patient enough with Ole. They have accorded him the respect a club legend deserves but it's now time to leave!!! The club has to move forward. Conte, Allegri and Zidane are free to be signed. #OleOut— Eluyera Oladipupo (@Olowokuti1) May 26, 2021

Next trophy we can win is February 2022. That means Ole is trophyless for 3 years and 3 months, despite being in the EUROPA LEAGUE twice. At a club the size of Manchester United. NeW cOnTrAcT WoRtHy AcHiEvEmEnTs #OleOut— ⚡™️ (@AniUTD) May 26, 2021
