Manchester United are still fully committed to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. And have no plans to sack the club legend as manager despite the team’s indifferent start to the season.
The Norwegian coach is yet to win a trophy since originally taking over as caretaker manager in December 2018. And has seen his side suffer three defeats in their last four games across all competitions. The Red Devils have only won two of their last six matches in all competitions.
At the end of last month, Manchester United were dumped out of the EFL Cup by West Ham. While they suffered another home defeat last weekend to Aston Villa. Solskjaer’s side dropped more points on Saturday in a 1-1 draw with Everton. The result saw Cristiano Ronaldo storm straight off the pitch at the final whistle. To sum up the feeling of many supporters.
Club still backing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer
But the Norwegian manager is still not under any immediate danger of being replaced, according to Fabrizio Romano. The message coming out of Old Trafford is that ‘nothing has changed’. With the club still backing Solskjaer to end United’s wait for a trophy this season. Manchester United chiefs are said to be willing to give Solskjaer more time to improve the team.
Manchester United went into the new campaign on a high after the signings of Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane. And, when Cristiano Ronaldo returned from Juventus on transfer deadline day. It had many tipping them for the Premier League title. But it has gone south really quickly.
With the likes of Antonio Conte and Zinedine Zidane available. Some fans have called on Solskjaer to be relieved of his duties. The 48-year-old has won 75 of his 140 matches in charge of United since being appointed permanent manager.
But Manchester United’s owners the Glazers and Ed Woodward are both in support of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Despite the club’s recent poor form.
