Ole Gunnar Solskjaer knows he will be fired if his Manchester United side lose their next game against Tottenham Hotspur, according to The Sun.
The report references a quote from a source claiming the boss held talks with his squad after Sunday’s draw with Villa in which he admitted he fears for his future.
The source claimed:
Ole was a little bit emotional and told them that if they don’t get two results this week, he could be gone.
It is the worst time to be facing Spurs with Jose coming back.
Ole told the players all his and their focus now has to go straight to the Spurs game.
He was not being critical of Jose in any way but made it clear to the players just how much their old boss will want to win.
United have a difficult week coming up with games against Spurs and City, and they could find themselves lingering in the middle of the bottom half of the table if things go poorly.
