Man United’s stance on Solskjaer’s sacking emerges as the manager makes a heartfelt plea to the Glazers

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has offered the Glazers some advice in the wake of reports that Manchester United is considering firing him due to a poor run of results.

The pressure on Solskjaer has increased following Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Everton. And, despite the fact that they are only two points behind leaders Chelsea, the club will be left regretting those dropped points as well as the home defeat to Aston Villa last weekend.

Indeed, United have only won two of their last six games across all competitions. In that time, they have also seen another trophy avenue close after a Carabao Cup defeat to West Ham.

Solskjaer most likely did not help his cause by admitting how teams were able to harm them. There is clearly a problem that needs to be addressed.

All of this has increased the pressure on the Norwegian coach, whom this pundit believes is clueless and should be replaced by this world-class coach.

However, amid speculation that he may be fired, Solskjaer has made an emotional plea to United’s American owners.

“It’s the same question that was asked after Wednesday night,” Solskjaer said.

“I’m very confident that we will get the best out of this squad.

“A lot has happened this month and we’ve had Raphael [Varane] and Jadon [Sancho] with us since August, and Cristiano [Ronaldo] since September.

“We’ve got loads to work on and we need to improve, we know that and I know that. But I do believe in this group of players and the coaching staff that I’ve got. So, the short answer is yes [I should stay].

“I believe in these players, I believe in the coaching staff and I believe we have something going.”

Solskjaer, however, realises that results need to improve.

“The proof is in the pudding, we need results and you have to turn up,” he added.

“You can’t say ‘we did well against City and Tottenham last year’, we have to do it during the 90 minutes, whoever plays.

“That’s the challenge, because every game in the Champions League and Premier League is a big game against a good team and every game as Manchester United is a potential banana skin, as we’re expected to win every one.”

Glazers stance on Solskjaer sack emerges

Meanwhile, despite the poor run of results, Fabrizio Romano, a trusted transfer guru, insists Solskjaer is not in danger of being fired.

He claims the message from Old Trafford is that “nothing has changed” and that the Glazers are still “fully committed” to the Norwegian.

Furthermore, United’s owners have indicated a willingness to back Solskjaer for at least this season. And there is still hope that Solskjaer can end the club’s five-year trophy drought during the 2021/22 season.

They believe he needs time to integrate their three major summer signings and that his performance will improve over time.

However, failure to deliver a trophy this season will almost certainly result in a review of his position at the end of the season.
