The decision of Manchester United’s board to part company with head coach Jose Mourinho could allegedly see a number of first-team players re-consider their role at Old Trafford.
The Portuguese had a lot of options at his disposal during his spell at Man United, which often led to a limited or no playing time for senior players of the club.
Among those stars were Matteo Darmian, who only played 17 games across all competitions last term, while he has been limited to onlyt four outings so far this calender year.
Accordinr to Calciomercato now though, it’s claimed that Antonio Valencia, Darmian, Marcos Rojo, Alexis Sanchez and Paul Pogba will all see serious uncertainty over their respective playing futures disappear for the main time.
Former club striker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was announced as Manchester United’s caretaker coach for the remainder of this campaign on Wednesday morning in an official statement by the club, and so it’s quite understandable that the first-team members will want to see his own plans moving forward before deciding on any big plans over their future.
Only time will tell what the new tactician decides to change from what was experienced and seen under Jose Mourinho, but he could surely give a new start to the likes of Matteo Darmian which will then possily rule out an imminent departure to seal a prominent role somewhere else.
Paul Labile Pogba was left on the bench for recent matches with North London club Arsenal, Fulham and Merseyside giants Liverpool, and he is surely the most high-profile case that the Norwegian boss will have to contend with to get the Frenchman back playing his best game consistently.
