Ed Woodward confirms Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sack decision

No matter what Manchester United fans think, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is here to stay.

Man United chief executive Ed Woodward will not sack Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, despite his side’s hapless performance against their bitter rivals Manchester City on Tuesday night.

Norwegian manager was heavily criticized by the fans for lacking appropriate mentality and tactics to counter Pep Guardiola’s rampant side, however, the reports suggest Woodward thinks otherwise.

The Red Devils were nowhere near their best throughout the game at Old Trafford and fans were furious with former Manchester United forward for his managerial decisions.

Manchester United have had a string of unsuccessful managers in the form of David Moyes, Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho at the club as none of them were able to live up to the expectations, however, none of them had as bad of a start as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

While Solskjaer has the worst record of the lot since being made permanent manager back in March, the Daily Star claim Woodward is still keen to back his man.

United have been sold by the Norweigan’s vision, something that saw him land the job despite Mauricio Pochettino having admirers at boardroom level behind the scenes.

And Woodward is keen to avoid another managerial casualty on his watch.

The United chief reportedly thinks winning silverware would give the team a lift – and ease pressure on Solskjaer in the process.

It’s not going to be easy for Manchester United to secure a silverware under these circumstances though. What do you think?

  1. I love the idiotic comments of united fans. talk about giving us a bad name. is this not the same manager that beat the same city in the league a matter of weeks ago. I fond ole to be struggling at the minuite but infully support what he is trying to do. I suggest as a united fan of 25 years and I look around at a large amount of so called united fans and think you need to get a grip. get used to being out the top 4 for a good few years. we are ot the same team as we were 10 years ago. liverpool are the new power in england and that’s the way it is…do I like it ?hell no but I’m a united fan not a anti city fan or anti liverpool fan. players want to go to city n liverpool they dont want to come to anymore. why would they? let’s just support our team every week and stop focusing on everything else around us. GGMU

    • OLE needs time / players that fit his style of play but Ed Wood,ole gave them the list of players but teams are buying them. We need more attacking mid fielders /central defender

  2. Olie is doing a great job we need new midfielders When mctomeny and maguire our out due to injury the whole team suffers.

  3. May not be a football mgr of any club but i am sure everyone who know abit abt football will tell you UNITED NEED A COUPLE OF MIDFIELDERS.

  4. Give him time he’s trying to rebuild with young players Rome wasn’t built in a day next season we will be playing better hopefully be in top 4 but in 2 years we will be playing to be even better but we have a great Liverpool side and man City side to beat at moment I’ve supported man utd 50 years ups and downs and still here

  5. Ive been a Man U supporter for over 35 years and im proud to say that Iv seen the best of them over the years or some of their best moments… Is it right to now start having doubts about this great team because they have been having bad games… NO… As a supporter we need to support our team through all periods of the clubs wins and losses…. I dont believe that its always the managers fault.. Yes they play a major role but the players need to also accept responsibility for listening and execution… We have almost a new team filled with youth and abilities however we lack experience with these up and coming stars… I have now doubt that our game will improve overall and we will certainly be the tram to beat in seasons to come.. UNITED SUPPORTER FOR LIFE

  6. Been a utd fan 46yrs and this is probably one of the weakest sides I have seen. Is it OGS fault, of course not he inherited the majority. Look who has come and gone since OGS took the helm and I feel its getting there. Give him 2 or 3 more Windows and let’s see where we are then. COYR.

  7. Manchester united has the biggest weakness in midfield and defence especially the left flank.Since the departure of Patrice Evra united has never got a replacement.Paul Pogba should be sold.

    Whilst agreeing it’s not totally Ole’s fault,i wonder and get sick when i get to see any of the quartet of Lingard, Lindelof,Shaw and Jones in the line up…..I rather an academy product play ahead of those jokers….the earlier Ole and backroom staff realise this the better for Manchester United

    The problem of Man Utd is not OLE but the idiot Ed Woodward. Why cant he approved buying better midfielders and extra defenders? Pogba should be sold as he’s contributing nothing to the club.
