He recently revealed that there has been several speculations about that but they are only lies to destabilize the group.
According to him, his substitution vs Tottenham at halftime was a technical decision by the manager because he felt the game was pretty much done at the time.
He added that he was not satisfied with being replaced before the end of the match but it was a manager’s decision he had to respect.
His words, “There’s been a lot of speculation about that,”
“First it was a discussion with team-mates, as it did not stick, it was a discussion with only one team-mate [Victor Lindelof], as it did not stick now, it is the discussion with Solskjaer.
“I believe it is a way to destabilise the group. What was said is in no way true.
“I was replaced at half-time, it is true, by technical option. The coach told me that the game was almost over and that we would have a lot of games ahead of us. Got it. I was not satisfied but said nothing that could harm the group.”
On Newcastle, “Do not use my name, my colleagues or the coach to make trouble at Manchester United,”
“The atmosphere is good and the team is ready to give an answer in the next game.”
