Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano has outlined what could happen in the coming months that may cause Manchester United to sack Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
While speaking on his own YouTube channel, Romano confirmed that the powers that be within the Manchester club are ‘backing’ Solskjaer.
However, he also explained that the ‘situation could change’ potentially in the near future if the manager can’t turn around his club’s form.
Romano said: “They are backing the manager. They want Solskjaer to change the situation, but if the situation will collapse and Man United will keep going not at [the] top-level, maybe the situation could change.
“So as of now, they are protecting the manager, they are with him. And the message – I want to be so clear – from Man United is, ‘Solskjaer is our manager, we are with him’.
“But of course, we know that in football things can change, and if Manchester United are not changing their results, maybe the situation could change in a few months.”
TIF Thoughts on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Manchester United…
Having signed the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane over the summer, it would be fair to assume United have the type of quality that should see them pushing for titles.
Will Solskjaer still have his job by Christmas?
Still, eight games into the new Premier League season, this team doesn’t quite look like it has enough about it to really push for a top-of-the-table finish the season.
Indeed, they sit in sixth spot in the league table, five points off the summit – and this latest loss to Leicester means they’ve already lost two games and drawn two more.
