Cristiano Ronaldo is the latest Manchester United player to speak up, following the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer from the club.

Solskjaer, who spent about three years at Old Trafford, failed to bring about the desired change at United, despite reaching the final of the Europa League.

After a fine start to the season, United slipped into a poor run of games, that have seen us win just one of our last seven matches.

The final straw for the Man United board was the 4-1 defeat to Watford on Saturday — a game that Solskjaer always knew was of some significance.

Following the Norwegian’s sack, many of Manchester United’s players and former colleagues have sent him a warm message, with Ronaldo being the latest to do so.

Taking to his instagram, the Portuguese wrote alongside a photo of the two of them, “He’s been my striker when I first came to Old Trafford and he’s been my coach since I came back to Man United.

“But most of all, Ole is an outstanding human being.

“I wish him the best in whatever his life has reserved for him.

“Good luck, my friend. You deserve it.”

Ronaldo was one of the few players who stood by Solskjaer during his troubles at Old Trafford, with the forward being his last signing as Manchester United manager.
