Manchester United midfielder, Nemanja Matic, appears to have liked a comment on social media, criticizing manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
United fans took to the social media over the weekend to express their concerns, following the club’s third successive match without a win in the Premier League this season.
Solskjaer’s side were held to a 1-1 result by 10-man Southampton, and have now only picked five points from possible 12. It is their worst start to a new season in 28 years.
The 31-year-old has not played for United this season, as Solskjaer prefers Scott McTominay and Paul Pogba’s partnership in the midfield.
Following the latest draw, one supporter commented on Matic’s pre-match Instagram post along with a caption which slammed the United manager.
“Matic if Ole Gunnar Solskjaer don’t want to future you in his team please leave the team I think that man is so myopic that he doesn’t know he needs you in the mid field, I am beginning to hate Ole,” the Instagram user wrote.
A supporter then noticed the comment was ‘liked’ by Matic, however, it is not likely that the player read the content of the message.
It is not the first time a United player has been involved in such an incident, after Eric Bailly was forced to explain why he had ‘liked’ negative comments about Marcus Rashford and Paul Pogba on Instagram earlier in the summer.
The Ivorian took to social media following the incident, to explain his account had been hacked as an explanation for the bizarre activity
Bailly explained: “I just want to confirm that my account has been hacked and the Instagram likes some of the media are stating I made were not made by me.
“My brothers @PaulPogba and @MarcusRashford know how highly I think of them.”
