Manchester United manager, Olé Gunnar Solskjaer, has asked to be held responsible for the slow start his side have made this season.
The Red Devils have picked up just three points from a possible nine so far, and have suffered humiliating defeats to Crystal Palace and Tottenham Hotspur.
Calls have come from fans for the Norwegian to be relieved of his duties, and he also seems to believe he should be blamed.
Speaking recently ahead of United’s trip to Newcastle, Solskjaer said, “The spotlight should be on me because I’m the manager and I’m responsible.
“I hold my hand up that you do have the spotlight on me.
“Last season was also hard, we played nine games and won two of the first nine, which was difficult. But, if you are part of Man United as player or staff you’re used to this and you have to be mentally strong and, for me, this period is another chance to prove and tell the players how much we believe in them.”
The Red Devils also won just two of their first nine games last season, and still went on to finish third, so we cannot give up hope just yet, but we also expect the team to challenge for the title this season, and if that will happen, every match must matter.
