According to Daily Mail, Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward is unwilling to sack manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer because he is protecting his own legacy at the club.
Many expected Solskjaer to be sacked following the 5-0 defeat to Liverpool at Old Trafford but Solskjaer held onto his job and eased some of the immediate pressure by overseeing a much-needed 3-0 win over Tottenham on Saturday.
Woodward is expected to leave his role from the club towards the end of the year and doesn’t want to fire another manager.
Despite calls for Solskjaer to be sacked, he believes sacking the Norwegian will be a big dent on his legacy at Old Trafford.
Instead, he would likely prefer incoming United’s managing director Richard Arnold to make the decision on Solskjaer’s future.
Until Woodward leaves Manchester United, Solskjaer’s position as Manchester United boss will remain safe irrespective of results on the pitch.
Woodward has been a controversial figure behind the scenes at United, with many fans pointing the finger at him for many of the club’s troubles.
