Ole Gunnar Solskjaer appears to be on the brink of losing his job as Manchester United manager.
Ever since the Red Devils were thumped 5-0 against rivals Liverpool on Sunday, in the Premier League, the Norweigan has looked precariously close to being relieved of his duties.
However, with the club’s hierarchy seemingly reluctant to change the man in charge, reports on Tuesday morning from Sky Sports, now suggest the Norweigan is set to remain in charge – at least for now, anyway.
Although Solskjaer now faces a crucial next set of fixtures, which includes a domestic tie against Nuno Espirito Santo’s Tottenham Hotspur, the ex-striker is reported to still have senior figures who are backing him.
That’s according to a recent report from the Guardian, who claims managing director Richard Arnold, executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward and former manager Sir Alex Ferguson are three senior names all backing Solskjaer as the right man for the job.
However, it has also been noted that the trio accepts the Norweigan’s fate will ultimately be decided by Joel Glazer – the head of the wealthy family who owns the club.
Solskjaer is expected to remain in charge at least until the Red Devils have played Tottenham Hotspur.
