Prior to Saturday afternoon’s game against Watford, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was under huge pressure to keep his job at the helm of Manchester United following a poor run of results.
That pressure has increased now, with a 4-1 defeat to Watford resulting in huge scrutiny on Solskjaer’s safety in charge of the Old Trafford club.
In truth, the performance against Claudio Ranieri’s side was embarrassing and Solskjaer is running out of excuses. He is lucky to have kept his job for this long and should he be sacked in the next couple of days, it will come to no one’s surprise.
Following the game, Solskjaer was pressed on his job safety by interviewers and was visibly dejected. Perhaps a break from football is what he needs.
🗣️ "We have good communication. If the club are thinking about doing something that is between me and the club"
