A number of Manchester United fans have been reacting to the news that the club’s board are still backing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to remain in the charge.
The Red Devils have had a mixed start to the 2021/22 campaign. They are just two points behind Premier League leaders Chelsea after seven games (Sky Sports), but one win in their last four matches (manutd.com), as well as a defeat to Young Boys in the Champions League, has put Solskjaer under pressure.
However, at the moment it seems that his job at Old Trafford is not under any threat. According to journalist Fabrizio Romano on YouTube (via football365.com), the board are still backing Solskjaer to get the job done at United, and he has the hierarchy’s full confidence moving forward.
Do you still back Solskjaer?
The news from Romano was relayed on Twitter by @utdreport, and it attracted plenty of attention from United supporters. These fans took to the social media platform to share their thoughts, with one fearing that veteran star Cristiano Ronaldo will end his career on a low under the Norwegian.
Let’s see what these fans had to say about the Solskjaer update
“Whenever these statements come out it means it’s only a matter of time. We’re being unrealistic to expect anything to happen now, but if by Christmas we’re out the CL and outside top 4 Ole will have a tough time convincing the board he’s the right man.”
“I think that’s absolutely insane. Ole isn’t all of a sudden going to change into Klopp. Every week is a new chance to showcase the groundwork carried out on the training pitch. Week in week out for past 3 years he’s shown majority of the time that he & coaching team are inept”
“The board only see the points, not the performances of the actual football. Which is most of the time garbage.”
“well that’s Ronaldo’s last years wasted then”
