According to reports, Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is believed to have held crisis talks with some of the club’s senior players in a bid to salvage his job.

The likes of captain Harry Maguire, Cristiano Ronaldo, Bruno Fernandes, Nemanja Matic, Luke Shaw and Victor Lindelof were the players involved in the meeting which held at the club’s Carrington training center.

Further report from the Daily Mail claim the Norwegian held the talks in order to discuss tactics after changing from a back four to a back three in recent matches and also to get ideas from the players how they can turn things around.

We have endured a frustrating start to the season winning just three of our last 10 matches in all competitions, a run which includes humiliating defeats to rivals Liverpool and Manchester City.

We face Claudio Ranieri’s Watford on Saturday at Vicarage Road and desperately need to win in a bid to get our season back on track after falling nine points adrift of Premier League leaders Chelsea.
