Only one Manchester United executive, and it is not Ed Woodward, has the final say on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
According to reports, Manchester United chief executive Ed Woodward is hesitant to fire Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, but the decision rests with another member of the hierarchy.
According to reports, Ed Woodward will not be the one to decide whether Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be retained or fired.
When his current contract expires at the end of the calendar year, the Red Devils’ chief executive will step down.
With so little time left in his job, reports suggested that Woodward was hesitant to appoint another manager to join David Moyes, Louis van Gaal, and Jose Mourinho in being fired.
However, that decision appears to be beyond his control, with another United executive bearing responsibility.
According to The Athletic, co-chairman Joel Glazer makes major decisions on behalf of his family’s ownership, such as firing a manager.
Despite the fact that Woodward is in charge of the majority of the day-to-day operations at Old Trafford, this is the case.
This season, neither Woodward nor Glazer have been frequent visitors to games.
However, the former, who is in the final weeks of his reign, was present at the club’s recent victory over Tottenham.

His successor is expected to be managing director Richard Arnold, a fellow senior executive, but no formal announcement has yet been made.
Arnold has been with the club since 2007, and he is a natural replacement because he worked closely with Woodward.
United don’t have that luxury for Solskjaer.
He is still in charge due to a scarcity of qualified candidates for the position.
According to the latest report, the 20-time Premier League champions appear to want to keep their current lineup until the end of the season.
With league leaders Chelsea nine points ahead of them, the goal now appears to be qualifying for the Champions League for the 2022/23 season.
Their weekend loss to Manchester City dropped them to sixth place in the table, five points behind the top four.
