Nottingham Forest’s Joe Lolley aims dig at Rio Ferdinand over Ole Gunnar Solskjaer situation

The footballing world have been dropping their takes on the Ole Gunnar Solskjaer situation at Manchester United this week after the Norwegian was sacked by the Red Devils after a torrid run of form.

After nearly three years in charge of the Premier League giants, Solskjaer was relieved of his duties after an embarrassing 4-1 defeat to Watford at Vicarage Road on Saturday.

His future over the last few weeks has become one of the biggest talking points in world football with many people weighing in on the subject, and Rio Ferdinand is one ex-United player who has recently called for a change in the dugout.

What club does Josh Rees now play for?

The ex-England defender played with Solskjaer and no-one will forget his ‘Ole’s at the wheel’ speech live on TV as a pundit, but he recently turned on the 48-year-old and admitted recently it was time for a change.

Despite being in the ‘Ole out’ camp, Ferdinand posted a clip to Instagram stating that the players have to take some form of responsibility for Solskjaer’s departure – but Nottingham Forest’s Joe Lolley seems to have a differing opinion.

The winger responded to Ferdinand’s post and it’s clear to see that he couldn’t disagree more with Ferdinand’s viewpoint on United’s squad needing an overhaul despite Solskjaer also leaving.

The Verdict

The Solskjaer situation has obviously been a big talking point in the world of football and the likes of Ferdinand and Gary Neville’s views as they were ex-teammates have been wanted massively.

But it’s clear to see that Lolley does not agree with Ferdinand’s call-out of United’s players which must mean that he thinks the blame lies solely at Solskjaer’s feet.

Ferdinand probably didn’t expect to get called out though by a Championship footballer but after going from the ‘Ole in’ to the ‘Ole out’ camp so drastically, Ferdinand has almost made a rod for his own back to be criticised by others in the industry.
