Man United’s stance on Solskjaer position after dismal Premier league start

Manchester United have no intentions of sacking Ole Gunnar Solskjaer despite a poor start to their Premier League campaign, according to reports. 

Pressure is already growing on Solskjaer after a start to the campaign that has prompted more questions than answers.

United have made the perfect start to their Champions League campaign with group stage victories over Paris Saint-Germain and RB Leipzig, but the league form has been quite the contrary.

Solskjaer’s men have lost three of their first four league home games, and sit in 15th after six games with just seven points.

Of course, as Solskjaer will admit, that points tally is nowhere near acceptable, regardless of the fact that the season is still very much in its infancy.

But while Mauricio Pochettino’s shadow will grow larger at Old Trafford if league results don’t drastically improve, the club remain confident with the current man at the helm.

According to journalist Fabrizio Romano on his ‘Here we Go’ podcast, United are happy with the progress Solskjaer is making with the squad and are convinced the season will improve.

It’s easy to forget United improbably managed to finish third in the league just four months ago and the club still retain faith that the Norwegian is taking them in the next direction.

Romano adds that the club are planning for their future under Solskjaer rather than contemplating appointing a new manager.
