The pressure is increasing on Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after a poor start to the season, with this weekend’s defeat to a poor Leicester side particularly damning for the Norwegian boss.
Manchester United took the lead in the first half through an unstoppable strike from Mason Greenwood but the Reds failed to hold on against their brittle opponents as they conceded four goals.
Marcus Rashford’s return from injury was marked with an equaliser in the 82nd minute but in an almost comical fashion, it took less than one minute for Leicester to regain their lead before scoring their fourth goal in the dying exchanges.
The defeat leaves Manchester United with just 14 points from their opening eight games of the season and winless in their last three games – that’s after winning four and drawing one in their opening five.
Gary Neville has had his say on the questions over Manchester United’s managerial post but has ruled out the possibility of Antonio Conte, who is available, joining the Old Trafford club.
“I don’t think they’ll go for that option, personally. He’s a great manager but I think certain managers fit certain clubs and I don’t think Conte fits United personally.
“As I say, great manager but doesn’t feel right for me that one.”
