Man Utd legend Roy Keane has warned that players will get Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sacked if results don’t improve.
The former United hit man has insisted there are ‘too many jokers’ in the squad.
Man United have conceded 11 goals in three Premier League games so far in 2020/21.
They were recently thrashed 6-1 at home by Tottenham last weekend.

Prior to that they had been disgraced by Crystal Palace in another home defeat and were just lucky enough to beat Brighton.
In the wake of the Spurs defeat, rumours circulated that United officials had already contacted Mauricio Pochettino about the possibility of taking over.
Much criticism has been directed at the United executives for failing to build on a positive end to last season in the summer transfer market.
Instead, they spent all summer pursuing Jadon Sancho, only to fail and complete four deadline day deals instead.
There is now a sense of déjà vu dating back to 2018 when Manchester United finished second in the Premier League, but failed to build.
This caused the previous boss Jose Mourinho to be sacked a few months into the next season when everything went bad.
Keane has even warned that the same players whose performances led to Mourinho getting sacked two years ago are still at the club and could cause Solskjaer to be sacked.
“You all have bad days in football. Some of the players were a disgrace to the Man United badge,” Keane said during ITV’s coverage of England’s international friendly against Wales.
An ESPN report earlier this week claimed that United missed out of all of Solskjaer’s primary targets over the summer.
Which echoes a familiar criticism former manager Louis van Gaal has previously aimed at the club’s hierarchy following his own frustrating spell at Old Trafford.
Confidence and morale in the squad has looked extremely low in the opening few games, perhaps fuelled by the disappointing of a lack of expected reinforcements.
But this group was good enough to qualify for the Champions League only a few months ago, while there is also an onus on Solskjaer to better coach and develop the players than the level currently showing.
