Manchester United may have scheduled an emergency meeting to discuss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s future, but the Norwegian manager was defiant following his side’s latest defeat.
Despite being 12 points behind the leaders, the former Cardiff and Molde coach stated that he and the club will keep working hard to get their season back on track.
Many of Solskjaer’s former followers disagreed with his assertion that their “extremely awful run” and “bad circumstances” are part of football.
“It’s a clear big, massive task for everyone at the club,” Solskjaer said after the humiliating 4-1 loss to Sky Sports.
“We all know the results aren’t up to par. Obviously, something isn’t right. I’m sorry for the fans. I share the fans’ sentiments. We’ve had a horrible run and are in a bad situation. But it’s all part of the game.” When asked about his future, he added: “I’m a member of the club and work for it. Of course, we have good contact, and if the club is considering doing something, we talk about it.” “Very,” he concluded when asked how low he was feeling.

Only to return and say, “The team is ready, and you’ve been working for the past week.”” With the addition of a second: “For the sake of the team, he should quit. At this stage, it’s a huge distraction.” “It feels like he has finally given up,” a third added. “If he truly feels the way he says, just move aside and depart with dignity,” a fourth added.

According to the New York Times, a virtual meeting is scheduled at 7 p.m., which might mark the end of Solskjaer’s 167-game run as manager.
