A day after English Premier League giants Manchester United suffered a shock 2-1 defeat at Istanbul Basaksehir on Wednesday in an UEFA Champions League group stage match, the crestfallen fans are demanding that the coach be fired.
This was their second consecutive defeat in a span of four days as the Red Devils suffered a 1-0 defeat to Arsenal at Old Trafford on Sunday.
Basaksehir’s victory over the Reds was their first ever in the Champions League, and the defeat has mounted more pressure on United coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The frustrated fans reacted furiously to the defeat and now want the coach to be booted out.
Ole is out of his depth. Always hoped he will succeed but then you have got to know when it's over.— JAYLINGZ (@Slickyjayy) November 5, 2020
Ed should act fast before this season gets lost and the next coach will be here to pick up the pieces. We can't go back to Europa league again. #OleOut

Despite the pressure, the Norwegian manager remained tight lipped about his future at the club.
"I decline to comment on such a thing", Ole said while adding that, "The performance wasn't good enough against a team that worked and ran and they hit us on the break a couple of times and scored two goals like sometimes you do in Europe when you don't defend well enough."
