Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Is Refusing To Step Down At Old Trafford And He’s Frustrated

Published

on

The Norwegian is expected to be in charge for Saturday’s trip to Watford, despite humiliating defeats to Manchester City and Liverpool in recent weeks.

United sit sixth in the league table, nine points adrift of leaders Chelsea. Their form has seen Solskjaer lose the support of large swathes of the dressing room, with senior players like Cristiano Ronaldo and Bruno Fernandes said to be particularly angry.

Rio Ferdinand suggested Solskjaer should resign following the defeat to Pep Guardiola’s men, saying it’s time for the ‘baton to be handed over’.

‘I was always deep down a bit sceptical. Could he take us on to be champions? I wasn’t fully convinced, I hoped he would be able to do that. But what I’ve seen this season I just feel it might be the time now for the baton to be handed over to somebody else who can take us on now,’ said Ferdinand.

But the Sun claim that Solskjaer has absolutely no intention of stepping down at the Theatre of Dreams and is adamant that he can turn things around.

Added to that, Solskjaer is said to be angry that his reign is only being judged by the start of this season and he feels people are forgetting the success he’s had.

United have finished third and second in Solskjaer’s two full seasons in charge, while they lost to Villarreal in the Europa League final last term.

Solskjaer feels he’s built up enough credit to see out this rough patch but a failure to qualify for the last-16 of the Champions League would surely see him sacked.

Brendan Rodgers is reportedly the board’s favourite to replace Solskjaer but the Norwegian could be given until the end of the season to see if he can reverse results.
