After Saturday’s disappointing 4-2 loss to Leicester, United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer dominates the headlines from over the last 24 hours.
Ole’s job is safe
Despite many Manchester United fans believing this may be the end of the road for him, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s job appears to be in safe hands.
The Athletic have reported that the Norwegian, despite only winning two out of the last seven games, will not be sacked by United as he has a lot of credit in the bank amongst the board.
United now see themselves drop out of the top four and with the likes of Liverpool, Tottenham and Manchester City all to come in the weeks ahead, the situation could become drastically worse.
Solskjaer will have plenty to do in order to get the United faithful back on side but it seems he has the full support and backing of the board.
Manchester United have spent heavily again in the summer bringing in the likes of Jadon Sancho, Raphael Varane and Cristiano Ronaldo to the dressing room and the spending is unlikely to stop there.
According to The Daily Star, the Manchester club will have a further £70m to spend in the mid-season transfer window but that money will only be available to Solskjaer if the board feel the club are in a position to sustain a title challenge.
The report suggests Solskjaer knows if United are in the hunt for glory by Christmas he will be rewarded with further financial backing to continue a major push in the run-in.
Neville slams United performances
Former United right-back Gary Neville is never one to shy away from expressing his opinions and today’s no different.
Off the back of United’s poor result at the King Power Stadium on Saturday, Neville discussed his former team’s recent performances. He told Sky Sports: "The performances have been so shoddy all season in terms of team performances. There's been some good results and some great individual goals, but the overall performances and the unit in and out of possession have been shoddy.”
"It's scrappy and scruffy to watch," added the United legend. “When you play a team with a clear organisation and a methodology, you're going to get pulled apart and that's what happened."
"Manchester United at this moment in time are imbalanced. The performances are now getting what they deserve in terms of the results. It needs to change. The performances need to be a lot better," he said.
Don’t hold back, Gary!
