Manchester United are deliberating over whether to dismiss their manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer imminently, before their next game. This hurried decision-making is a result of their humiliating home defeat to their Premier League archrivals Liverpool on Sunday. After the Red Devils’ 0-5 loss at Old Trafford in Premier League football news, Manchester United are considering firing Solskjaer.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer succeeded Jose Mourinho as Manchester United’s head coach, initially as an interim choice, in December 2018. And since then, he has overseen a steady development in his United squad.
That trend continued this season, by adding Jadon Sancho, Raphael Varane (football transfers), and Cristiano Ronaldo to an already-strong side.
Plus, Solskjaer has supervised higher Premier League finishes year after year.
As a result, Manchester United even gave the Norwegian a new contract so as to continue the work he started.
However, a dismal start to the season has seen Solskjaer’s United lose three of their last four Premier League games.
This is, most recently, compounded by the dreadful performance against Liverpool.
And such poor performance of late has put immense pressure on Solskjaer and raised questions about his future at United.
Football News – Manchester United Are Considering Firing Solskjaer
On Saturday, Manchester United will travel to Tottenham Hotspur for another fixture in the English Premier League.
But, Solskjaer is under greater pressure than at any other moment in his nearly three-year tenure. So much so that the potential of United sacking him immediately before that game has surfaced.
According to the Manchester Evening News, Solskjaer may have already coached his final game as United manager.
This is because club authorities are debating whether or not to fire him in the coming few days.
With the Spurs game only five days away, United management are reportedly giving sacking their coach much ‘serious thought.’
After the game, Solskjaer, whom people regard as a United icon for his performances as a player in his time, accepted full responsibility for the team’s performance and result against Liverpool.
