Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is under the most pressure to keep his job since his appointment some two years ago.

His team has made a bad start to the new campaign and that has understandably led to calls for him to be sacked.

The Red Devils are in the bottom places on the table after a start to the season which saw them lose their opening games at home.

Solskjaer and his players have just one win from three games played. The Manchester United manager could do without a few successive bad results with tough league games like Newcastle United (away), Chelsea (home) and Arsenal (home) on the horizon.

Recent reports claimed that Ed Woodward won’t hesitate to sack Solskjaer if results degenerates from bad to worse with former Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino seen as his instant replacement.

The future of Pep Guardiola is not clear at Manchester City and Pochettino is also a contender for that job if Guardiola leaves at the end of his present deal next summer.

French journalist Julien Laurens of the ESPN said that Pochettino will make two demands for him to take up the Manchester United managerial job.

The Argentine tactician would want a Sporting Director and greater control in the transfer market.
