Who is to blame for Manchester United’s present woes? The precedent set by David Moyes, Louis van Gaal, and Jose Mourinho seems to indicate that the problem extends way further than just the men who call the shots from the touchline.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer did little wrong during his spell as interim gaffer. However, ever since his appointment as the full-time manager of the Red Devils, the going has been tough.
Ousting from the FA Cup and the Champions League has now been worsened by the fact that the club may not be able to secure a top-four finish by the end of this season.
Now, the lack of Champions League football for the next campaign may have bigger repercussions than initially expected.

According to the Guardian, David De Gea, Paul Pogba, and Romelu Lukaku are all contemplating changing their future plans if Manchester United fail to qualify for Champions League football next season.
What makes this lot of players particularly interesting is their present context. All three are already quite unsure of their presence at Old Trafford, based on reports.
De Gea has been negotiating a possible extension to his contract from months now, with a massive wage bump being the point of contention between the Spaniard and the English giants.
Pogba, on the other hand, may find the possible lure of Real Madrid and Zinedine Zidane too strong to say no to.
As for Lukaku, the Belgian’s agent has already confirmed that the striker may consider other destinations in the summer.
However, on paper, these three players occupy the three most pivotal spots in United’s present roster. However, they have been in far from their peak form in the recent weeks, and more than one supporter is of the opinion that the club could do without their toxic and uninspiring presence.
What will be Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s decision regarding them – honor their choices or render squad depth and brand value as more vital?
