Manchester United Fans Are Not Happy With Ole Gunnar Following His Latest Statement

United on Sunday afternoon draw critical points in the fixture against Leeds United. Supporters had high hopes that the Reds will clinch the three points in the Elland Road. But the absence of Paul Pogba and Edinson Cavani in the Starting eleven lineup contributed to the goalless match.

There is something that happens during the clash that wasn't captured. Fred during the match appeared offended by the United skipper Harry Maguire for making a dangerous play that almost gave Leeds United a goal.

It is reported that Maguire's retaliation was not good because being decided to insult Fred. According to our sources, the pitch microphones recorded the England defender hurling unprintable words to the Brazilian midfielder. It is alleged that the skipper called Fred "****king idiot".

But today when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was asked about the incident, he was quick to jump to the aide of the England defender. According to him the incident like those are good for the development of a team. He went ahead to claim both players wanted the best performance from each other.

"We have a group that demands a lot of each other," Ole said when asked about the argument between the pair. The standards are high, in training and the game. It’s not just about being a nice guy and cajoling each other," the Norwegian Manager added.

However, this statement by the Norwegian Manager has elicited angry reactions among Manchester United fans. Some believe that the manager could just avoid the question rather than defending the skipper.
