His words “I decline to comment on such a thing. It is early on. Opinions are there all the time. We have to stay strong,” he told reporters.
“I am employed by the club to do a job and I’m doing that to the best of my ability with my staff.”
When backing the former Celtic and Liverpool manager to pick the job at Old Trafford, he said told talkSports that he would back Leicester City boss for the job.
“He’s done a brilliant job at Leicester. Yes, he’s had money, but I don’t care, look at the table as well.
“He is top class,” he added.
Meanwhile, the Red Devils are yet to make any statement about the negative results but their body language hints that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer still has the backing of the club to turn things around.
Nevertheless, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has looked calm over the speculations and stated that he was given a job and he is focused on achieving.
