M.U uses an army of hot WAGs to “rescue” the player

Solskjaer coach of Manchester United (M.U) has just made a shocking proposal to want the WAGs (wives and girlfriends) of the “Red Devils” to regularly warm up husbands and boyfriends during isolation.

Mr. Solskjaer did not speak out, but suggested: “M.U has a specific program for each player to train at home. However, they also need some more special things like “the ball or pass from girlfriend or wife,” to always stay happy, balanced and energetic.”

Maybe Mr. Solskjaer wants his wife and girlfriend M.U to participate in the training program of her husband and boyfriend during the current isolation period at home, to help them always maintain the excitement.

However, the British press said that this is probably a suggestion of Mr. Solskjaer in order to want his players to balance between training and sexual activity to stay in shape due to the non-practice isolation too long.

M.U currently holds the record of unbeaten 11 matches on all fronts, including 8 wins, so coach Solskjaer does not want his players to return to the game to lose the momentum of the past.

Currently the Premier League has a deadline to play again on April 30. However, the prize may be postponed. Therefore, Mr. Solskjaer is forced to calculate a backup solution, which is that in addition to training at home, he must support the player in other sensitive and personal matters, because the situation of isolation may be prolonged.
