Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been under a lot of scrutiny recently. On the back of a string of poor results, there have been fears that the Norwegian could be fired as Red Devils manager, but Manchester United have no plans to fire Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Question has been raised about Solskjaer's ability to lead the team during his time at Manchester United. However, after the club 5-0 loss to Liverpool at Old Trafford last month, he was put under even more pressure.
After that, it was stated that Solskjaer was given three more games to turn things around. Following a win over Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester United failed to pick up three points against Atalanta and Manchester City in successive encounters.
Atalanta held Manchester United to a 2-2 draw in the Champions League last week. The Red Devils subsequently lost 2-0 to Manchester City in the Manchester derby at the weekend. The defeat to the Citizens on Saturday should have placed Solskjaer's position at Old Trafford in jeopardy.
However, Solskjaer appears to be set to remain as Manchester United manager now. According to sources, despite a string of poor results, the club's management has no plans to fire the Norwegian.
Solskjaer is thought to have the support of the majority of Manchester United's board members. The Red Devils have not contacted any other managers in the hopes of replacing the 48-year-old.
For the time being, Solskjaer's job as Manchester United manager is secure. According to sources, Joel Glazer is one person who has the ability to change the situation.
Manchester United's co-chairman is Joel Glazer. He is said to have the authority to make decisions about the manager's dismissal.
Joe Glazer, on the other hand, has shown no signs of losing faith in Solskjaer. It'll be interesting to see how long the Manchester United administration is willing to give Solskjaer a chance to turn things around.
Meanwhile, there are reports that there is a Manchester United locker room uprising against Solskjaer. Following the loss to City at the weekend, Cristiano Ronaldo and Bruno Fernandes are leading the revolt against the former Cardiff City manager.
