Man Utd coaching staff unhappy with Solskjaer delegating

Some members of Manchester United coaching staff are unhappy with the delegating of manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The Irish Independent says certain United coaches are becoming frustrated by the number of duties Solskjaer is delegating to other members of his staff.

The Norwegian reportedly prefers to take more of a backseat and observe from the sidelines, tasking first-team coaches Michael Carrick and Kieran McKenna with delivering the main tactical briefings.

Carrick, 40, and McKenna, 35, are typically on hand to devise and conduct training sessions at Carrington, while 29-year-old Eric Ramsay is in charge of set-pieces.

All three men are very early into their careers as coaches, meaning Solskjaer is essentially entrusting an inexperienced trio with the majority of United's preparations on the training ground while adopting a more hands-off approach himself.

This is said to have irritated certain members of the coaching staff, who believe they are being left to face the accusation of overseeing one of the most under-coached and poorly-drilled sides in the Premier League this season.
