According to rumors, Manchester United’s owners, the Glazers, and Ed Woodward, both back Ole Gunnar Solskjaer despite the club’s recent dismal results. In recent weeks, the 48-year-old has presided over defeats to Young Boys, West Ham, and Aston Villa. Despite a successful summer of substantial investment at Old Trafford.
Manchester United started the new season on a high with the additions of Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane. And, when Cristiano Ronaldo returned from Juventus on transfer deadline day, many people predicted that they would win the Premier League.
Ronaldo’s first game back was a good one, with the club winning 4-1 against Newcastle on a day where Old Trafford was raucous.
However, since then, the likes of Young Boys, West Ham and Aston Villa have put them to the sword in the Champions League, Carabao Cup and Premier League respectively.
With the likes of Antonio Conte and Zinedine Zidane available, some fans have called on Solskjaer to be relieved of his duties.
After all, with no trophy to his name despite spending longer in charge than the likes of Jose Mourinho and Louis van Gaal, the jury is still very much out.
But ESPN say United have no plans to sack Solskjaer at the current moment in time.
Both Woodward and the Glazers have given the Norwegian their ‘unequivocal supporter’ and he’s the man they fully expect to bring the glory days back.
In the summer, United gave Solskjaer a three-year contract after he’d guided them to second in the league table, as well as the Europa League final.
And they’ll be hoping he can get the club back on track when they face off against Villarreal in the Champions League on Wednesday night.
