Conor McGregor slams Man Utd fan as "silly fool" in Solskjaer sack debate

Conor McGregor has taken aim at one Manchester United fan after weighing into the debate over whether to sack Ole Gunnar Solskjaer or not.

The Norwegian is fighting for his job after a 5-0 thrashing from Liverpool in front of a packed-out Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.

That has left United on the verge of a crisis with meetings already taking place over whether or not to sack Solskjaer.

Sir Alex Ferguson had to fight for his old player's job in the boardroom while he was also present at the training ground on Tuesday.

Fans are also torn on whether to dismiss the Red Devils manager with Antonio Conte reportedly waiting in the wings to take over.

And after McGregor gave his thoughts, he was hit with a number of replies from fans wanting "Ole out". And the UFC legend was less than pleased.

The Irishman is a staunch United fan and is still in Solskjaer's corner and went into detail over what his club must do in the future.

He initially tweeted: "The issue at United is it’s just bunch of young fellas talking to each other. Peers.

"You need some one above the group chat to take the helm. Ole was on the bench when Ronaldo played. A peer.

"Not enough. Love and respect Ole to the max but his role needs rearranged. My opinion."

One fan hit back demanding the manager's dismissal, to which McGregor replied: "Never ole out you silly fool.

"Ole is forever United! His role simply to needs to be readjusted, and again, someone above the group chat needs brought in.

"Someone to command the young squad. God bless."

Solskjaer was adamant he is right man to take United further despite a poor start to the season with five losses in the last nine games.

"We've come too far as a group and we're too close to give up now," he said on Sunday.

"I've heard nothing else [about a potential departure]. This is the lowest I've been, but as I've said, I accept the responsibility.

"I do believe in myself, I do believe that I am getting close to what I want with the club, I think what we've done, what I've seen, the development, of course, the results lately haven't been good enough.

"But I've got to keep strong and I do believe in what we've been doing, the coaching staff and the players."
