As the uncertainty around Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s future as Manchester United’s manager, multiple reports are emerging about the true situation of things.
The Norwegian is under enormous pressure to deliver, having seen United lose three of their last four Premier League games.
There seemed to be a ray of hope after the 3-0 win at Tottenham, which came off the back of successive defeats to Liverpool and Leicester City. But an uninspiring 2-2 draw against Atalanta, and a 2-0 loss to Manchester City have made things more difficult for the 48 year old.
However, according to ESPN journalist, Rob Dawson, a reliable source, despite recent events, and calls from fans for Solskjaer to be sacked, the owners want to keep him because they like him.
The only condition on which the ‘Smiling Assassin’ will be fired, is if United fail to qualify for the UEFA Champions League next season.
At the moment, we’re sixth on the league table— five points behind the fourth placed team, and there does seem to be some hope. However, another loss may be too damaging, especially considering the competitive nature of the league this season.
