Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer remains ‘SAFE out of the bag’


|

Betrayed Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is reported to remain safe from the looting despite his team’s scorching form.

A 4-2 defeat at the hands of Leicester extended United’s nightmare, leaving them behind the top four and stuttering in their anticipated title challenge.

However, Solskjaer will not be out in the aftermath of the latest setback while the board still throws its weight behind them, the athletic have claimed.

As the report outlines, the beleaguered Solskjaer still has “a lot of credit in the bank” as far as the hierarchy at Old Trafford is concerned.

And it is this belief in his project that will save him from another big change at the helm, regardless of United’s three-game winless run in the league.

United threw in the money to bring in players like Cristiano Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane in the summer as they seemed destined to push Manchester City to the top.

Instead, United have been accused of looking incoherent, with accusations and criticisms of Solskjaer and his coaching staff in recent weeks.

They are now also facing a test run of matches, with Liverpool, Manchester City, Chelsea, Tottenham and Arsenal in the near future.

Solskjaer was given the role of caretaker manager in December 2018 following the resignation of Jose Mourinho, and was appointed permanent the following March.

In a promising campaign last season, the former United forward was given a new three-year contract in July, with the option to extend for another year.

Should Solskjaer see his new term, he will remain in charge of United until at least 2024.

United’s defeat to King Power put an end to their 29-game unbeaten run, a league record, in a limp way.

When questioned about the performance, Solskjaer said his players had been through a ‘bad day’

“It’s always difficult when you come here and then you have to perform to get results,” Solskjaer told Manchester United’s official website.

“And of course it had to happen one day that we lost away from home.

“We didn’t earn more because we didn’t perform to get points in the Premier League.

“So we have to look at it, learn from it, which of course we have now had time during the international break to look at things we need to do better. Today we just didn’t do well enough.’

He added: ‘We didn’t deserve a point. We took the lead, Mason showed his quality and then we gave them a goal. All the goals we conceded were disappointing in the way we conceded.

“It wasn’t just midfield, but we were too easy to play through. Maybe we gave too much space, but that’s just the whole team.

“I agree that we didn’t defend well enough. Today we just didn’t do well enough.’
