Harry Maguire has insisted that the players and everyone else at Manchester United must take responsibility for the events that led up to the departure of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer from the club.

Solskjaer was sent packing from his role as manager, after a string of poor results in the UEFA Champions League and Premier League.

United’s 4-1 defeat to Watford at Vicarage Road on Saturday, was the latest of a disappointing run, that included defeats to Premier League rivals, Liverpool and Manchester City at home.

Michael Carrick has been appointed caretaker manager for our upcoming games, starting with the UEFA Champions League tie away to Villareal, and speaking ahead of the game, Maguire reiterated that everyone must share in the responsibility of the events that led up to Solskjaer’s sack.

In his own words, “The players need to take responsibility for everything.

“We are the ones that cross that white line, we were in this together, management, staff and players.

“The manager has paid the price and we are all so disappointed. We haven’t been good enough, individually, as a team, but we have got to look forward and get the club back to where it once was.

“Ultimately the recent performances haven’t been good enough. We take a large amount of reasonability for that. We know that.

“The manager came in and spoke to us. It was an emotional, day. Everyone has got a huge amount of respect for Ole and what he has done. One thing he did say was that he’ll be supporting us and wanting us to win every game.”
