Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reviews Manchester City defeat
A small section of Manchester United fans shouted “Ole out” in the direction of Red Devils legend Roy Keane while he was analysing England’s 5-0 win over Albania.
The loud taunts were referencing United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who is under increasing pressure after overseeing a dismal run of form at Old Trafford.
Keane, who is a friend and former teammate of Solskjaer’s, was part of ITV’s coverage of the Three Lions contest, but matters quickly turned to Man Utd after the full-time whistle when the shouts started.
The fans could be heard loud and clear as speculation continues over the future of Solskjaer, who received huge financial backing in the summer only to guide United to sixth after 11 league games played.
HAVE YOUR SAY! Should United sack Solskjaer? Comment below
Roy Keane was heckled by fans as he tried to analyse England’s win over Albania Keane has been particularly fair in his assessment of Solskjaer’s tenure at United, opting against blindly defending a former teammate to provide a balanced view.
He has also diverted his attention to the players themselves, particularly the United players who also represent England – claiming there is ‘something amiss’ between them.
Speaking prior to kick-off at Wembley, Keane said: “Every case is different, [Jadon] Sancho hasn’t been getting many minutes recently.
“The issue I suppose with [Marcus] Rashford and [Mason] Greenwood is that whenever they’re selected it seems to be an issue.
“I know they’ve had injuries, I understand that, but we know their quality and when Gareth is asked about them he says ‘yeah I spoke to Marcus…’ It seems like a big conversation.
“It’s as if there’s something going wrong, there’s something amiss with some of these United lads.”

Though Keane originally focused on United and England’s attacking players, his attention was quickly diverted into the path of United captain Harry Maguire for all the wrong reasons.
After the Red Devils skipper opened the scoring for his country with a powerful header, his celebration appeared to be pointed towards those who have criticised him in recent weeks.
Maguire wheeled away with his fingers in his ears, suggesting he was not listening to those who had been questioning him in recent weeks.
Harry Maguire was seemingly sending a message with his goal celebration after scoring for England It was a move that did not go down well with Keane, who used the half-time interval as a chance to berate the defender for his stunt.
“He puts his hands to his ears like he’s shutting his critics up… it’s embarrassing,” Keane blasted.
“He’s been a disgrace last few months for Manchester United, he scores and he thinks he’s going to shut his critics up, it’s embarrassing.”
