Manchester United’s official TV channel was left redfaced following Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Everton after two children called for manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to be sacked and slated Jadon Sancho. The unexpected gaffe has quickly become a hit with fans online.
Saturday’s draw with the Toffees means it’s now just one win in four games for the United boss.
Solskjaer was under fire before a ball was even kicked for making the call to bench Cristiano Ronaldo for the Everton game. His replacement, Anthony Martial, did however find the net to give United the lead and seemingly vindicate Solskjaer’s decision.

Unfortunately, Andros Townsend’s equalising strike denied him a much-needed win – and has heaped the pressure on the United boss.
But things got worse for Solskjaer and United after the game with an embarrassing moment on United’s official TV channel, MUTV.
Presenter Sam Homewood allowed two children who had walked into the background as he chatted with former United academy graduate Alex Bruce to give their thoughts on the game – and the kids didn’t hold back.

“Ole out” responded one, with the second adding, “Ole out, Sancho’s crap” before quickly scuppering away.
“I’ll be honest, I expected better from children. That’ll teach me, I no longer trust any children,” quipped Homewood as Bruce attempted to hold back laughter.
Sancho was introduced in the second half but couldn’t help United find an elusive winning goal after Townsend’s strike had silenced Old Trafford.
His tough start to life in Manchester goes on following his £73m summer move from Borussia Dortmund.
And Solskjaer was slammed again after the game by talkSPORT pundit Gabby Agbonlahor for his decision to leave Ronaldo out for the Everton game – despite the 36-year-old getting United out of jail with the last-gasp winner in United’s 2-1 win over Villarreal in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

“It’s a sackable offence not to start Ronaldo in itself,” the former Aston Villa striker told talkSPORT.
“Ronaldo you have to play him, you just put yourself under so much pressure by not playing him, he has to start.
“He’s been brought in on probably £700,000 a week so to play games and win leagues for Manchester United.
“He’s in that squad to win the Premier League this season. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is not going to win the league for Manchester United.
Even the last 30 seconds of the game he’s laughing on the touchline.
“It just shows he’s happy with a draw, you shouldn’t be happy with a draw against Everton at home.”
