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?
