Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay has claimed he and his team-mates are behind Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, after rumours circulated that Bruno Fernandes had lost faith in the manager.

The 23-year-old insists the Norwegian still has the backing of the United dressing room, despite a poor start to the season.   

The Red Devils have lost two of their opening three league fixtures and the pressure is building on Solskjaer.

United finished in third place last season but thus far have been incapable of building on their encouraging post-lockdown form. 

After a home defeat on the opening day to Crystal Palace, Solskjaer’s side picked up a bit of momentum by beating Luton in the third round of the Carabao Cup before securing back-to-back wins against Brighton in the Premier League and the fourth round of the league cup. 

Any impetus garnered from those three successive wins was obliterated after a rampant Tottenham team thrashed them 6-1 at Old Trafford before the international break.

They are already a massive nine points behind league leaders Everton, although they have played a game less.

Fernandes scored for United from the spot in that defeat, taking his tally for the club to 14 in 26 appearances since he arrived in January. 

The midfielder who joined from Portuguese side Sporting Lisbon for an initial fee of £47million, reportedly has become disillusioned with his manager’s ability to take the club forward. 

And he was left bemused at the United’s failure to significantly strengthen during the summer transfer window. 

McTominay however has rejected any notion of disharmony at Old Trafford. 

‘The whole club is behind him,’ the Scottish international told TV2 while on international duty. ‘We believe in every word he says, and it’s not just him.

‘We trust every word from Mike Phelan, Kieran McKenna, Michael Carrick and the entire support staff.’   

When asked to to give his own thought’s on his manager’s two and a half year tenure he added: ‘Fantastic. You see it in the way he has developed me and given me playing time and how I have played. That is a lot to his credit.’ 

United are back in Premier League action away at Newcastle on Saturday, before their focus shifts to their Champions League group stage opener against Paris Saint Germain three days later.

The shocking revelation – in the final game of the already beleaguered 2020 season – raises questions about MLB’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic, and threatens the feasibility future sporting events as the disease continues to spread.

Turner – a talisman in the Dodgers squad – was grouped with fellow players in the dugout and on the field throughout the game, which was played in an empty stadium.

The win for the Dodgers is their first World Series victory since 1988 and comes after eight consecutive post-seasons.

Malu, who has 8.5million Instagram followers, has also given her side of the story.

She said: “I met up with him because he was a very nice guy, he was very sweet.

“Yeah he told he had a kid, but he never told me that he was engaged and he never told me that he had another baby coming.

“But he’s a really nice dude and I didn’t know that.

“Let’s just not get into that. I just woke up and I’m seeing all this s***.

“Did not know he was engaged and I texted him and ask him why he didn’t tell me and he said because they’re on and off.”

Garcia is preparing for his return to the ring on December 5 when he will face Luke Campbell for the WBC’s interim title.

The American has an incredible record of 20-0 including 17 knockouts so far.

KIDS’ food champion Marcus Rashford shows he’s a bit of a beefcake himself as he launches Nike’s latest underwear line.

The Man United and England forward took a break from campaigning for free holiday meals for poorer schoolchildren to share this snap on Instagram.

The busy 22-year-old has a lot on his plate.

Earlier this week, it was reported that the footballer is set to miss out on a BBC Sports Personality of the Year nomination, despite his remarkable charity work.

Rashford is odds-on favourite with the bookies for the award after earning plaudits for his tireless campaigning for disadvantaged children to receive free meals during school holidays.

But the reports claim the star is likely to be overlooked as the Beeb’s guidelines state only ‘sporting achievements’ can be considered – despite the name of the award.

That would leave Formula One superstar Lewis Hamilton a strong contender after the Mercedes ace beat Michael Schumacher’s long-standing wins record at the Portuguese GP.

Rashford forced the Government into a U-turn over the summer holidays after fighting for the free school meals programme to be extended in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

And he took on ministers again as many vulnerable children head into the half-term without the safety net of food provided at school.
