Manchester United Chairman ‘Overrules’ Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Decision To Sell Star Player, Says He’s The Club’s ‘Pele’
If Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is hoping to get rid of some of the players who don’t work as hard this summer then he might have a problem on his hands because co-chairman Joel Glazer believes Anthony Martial is the team’s Pele.
When Jose Mourinho was sacked by Manchester United back in December most people understood that the manager was far from the only, or biggest, problem at the club but he was the easiest to fix.
Things did turn around for the better under Solskjaer initially but by the end of the season the team drew with relegated Huddersfield Town and lost to relegated Cardiff City, amongst many poor results.
One huge problem has been the perceived lack of effort from some of the players. Chief amongst those has been Anthony Martial, with Mourinho wanting to sell the Frenchman last summer.
Now Solskjaer has reportedly had similar thoughts but, according to the Mirror, any effort to sell the forward would be blocked by co-chairman Joel Glazer who sees the 23 year old as the ‘club’s Pele.’
