EPL: United have finally made a decision on Solskjaer’s future


Despite being beaten 2-1 by Istanbul Basaksehir in the Champions League on Wednesday, Sky Sports News reporter James Cooper reveals that Man United board will not sack Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The Red Devils lost their last Premier League game at Old Trafford against Arsenal last weekend and were beaten by the Turkish outfit in the Champions League, raising fears and speculations that the Norwegian manager would be sacked.

Reports have it that former Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino is already in contact with Man United chiefs for a possible deal as long as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer continues to produce negative results.

The Argentina International also fuelled the speculations by declaring his readiness for the job and already gave a hint of how he intends to get the job done at Old Trafford.

However, Sky Sports News reporter has revealed that the Red Devils are unmoved by the results and have backed the former player for the job

“From what I’m being told, Manchester United still see Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as a long-term project and somebody who should be given the backing and support to do this job. I don’t think anything’s changed.

When asked about his future at Man United, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was unmoved by all that is speculations as he noted that he is employed by Man United to a job which is being done in the best of his ability.

His words “I decline to comment on such a thing,” he said in his post-match press conference. “Of course, it’s early on and opinions are out there all the time.

“You’ve got to stay strong. I’m employed by the club to do a job and I do that to the best of my ability with my staff.” He said

Perhaps Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is being protected as a former player but no doubt the negative results will not be acceptable with time.
