Solskjaer still furious with the transfer decision Louis van Gaal made while at Man United

Published

Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has told the club to solely focus on securing Jadon Sancho rather than also monitor his alternatives.

Solskjaer: Jonny Evans should still be at Manchester United

According to the Mirror, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is not a fan of Louis van Gaal’s decision to sell Jonny Evans while manager at Manchester United.

Solskjaer was still a United player as Evans was rising through the youth ranks at the club. Evans made his debut in 2007/08 and was part of three Premier League winning sides under Sir Alex Ferguson.

He eventually made 198 appearances for United scoring seven goals and assists apiece before being allowed to join West Bromwich Albion in 2015. (h/t Transfermarkt)

He did not feature in Van Gaal’s plans and was sold for a meagre £6m that even shocked Ferguson. The Northern Irishman has, however, continued to impress away from Old Trafford, eventually earning himself a move to Leicester City in 2018.

He is now a key cog of Brendan Rodgers’ Foxes side that is actively competing with United to finish second. His performances have been good enough to annoy Solskajer who wishes the player was still at Old Trafford.

“You know, Jonny Evans should have been a Manchester United player now, of course. Sometimes football takes you other places when changes in management happen.”

No love lost!

Solskjaer’s side will go up against Evans’ Leicester later tonight in the FA Cup quarter-finals. Despite having left the club six years ago, Solskjaer believes the defender still has a fondness of his time at United.

“I’m sure that Jonny Evans has feelings for Manchester United and we have feelings for him too.”

Evans was not a flashy player but an effective one. He patrolled the backline with a no-nonsense attitude and gave it his best. While it may not have been enough at times, one cannot fault his effort.

Evans may well hold fondness for United, however, little will be on show when he takes the field against us. The consummate professional, one cannot expect him to give anything but his best to knock us out tonight.
