As specifics of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s sack position emerge, United chiefs ‘expect change’ from him.
Manchester United’s recent form has been dismal, and manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been under fire as a result of recent failures.
After weeks of dismal results at Old Trafford, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has come under strong pressure to improve at Manchester United – and if rumors are to be believed, he has also received warnings from Old Trafford chiefs about his performance in the hotseat.
United has only won two of their past six games against boring opponents, and they can consider themselves fortunate to have won both of those games in the dying embers.
A shock Champions League loss to Young Boys has been followed by losses to West Ham and Aston Villa, as well as a draw against Everton.
In the league, United earned a last-minute win over West Ham, in which the Hammers missed a last-minute penalty to equalize, and a win over Villarreal thanks to a Cristiano Ronaldo winner at the death.
With fans losing patience, Old Trafford bosses are said to have contacted him and him a warning about his long-term future at the club.
It’s incomprehensible that United could sack him so fast after signing a new contract in July that will keep him at the club until 2024.
United management have warned Solskjaer, according to Fabrizio Romano, that if results do not improve, they may be obliged to reconsider the situation.
In an interview with The United Stand, Romano reiterated that United saw Solskjaer as their guy for the future, despite some skepticism.
“They’re not speaking with any other management right now,” Romano added.
“They are completely behind Ole and are rooting for him. The message was plain when they granted him a new deal in the summer.
“They want to keep the project going with Solskjaer, but they’re expecting something different, which is part of the game.
“They expect something different in the Premier League, and they got lucky against Villarreal in the Champions League.
“They’ll play Atalanta next, who are a difficult and difficult team to play against, so that will be a good test of United’s current state.
“But for the time being, they’re with the manager, and they’re happy – but they anticipate Ole to change things in the next few weeks.”
