Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is coming under increasing pressure at the club amid a poor run of form, which has seen his side claim just one point from their last four Premier League games.
The Norwegian boss was a dejected figure in the five-goal thumping against Liverpool last weekend and although some reports claim Antonio Conte has been sounded out as his replacement, there are now suggestions he will remain in charge of the team for the game against Tottenham on Saturday.
Manchester United’s deteriorating form has led to some fans calling for the manager’s head but the Norwegian is set to avoid the sack – for now.
That’s according to The Athletic, who claim that Solskjaer still has the support of the Manchester United hierarchy but defeat to Tottenham on Saturday could risk the situation unraveling.
The publication also ponder over potential replacements, with former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte flagged as a possible candidate. The Italian manager is out of work since leaving Inter Milan over the summer, and although he usually would be reluctant to take a job mid-season, the Old Trafford gig is an exception.
