Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reviews Manchester City defeat

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is refusing to quit amid his increasing Old Trafford woes, despite discontent from star players over his tactics.

Speculation that the Red Devils boss will be replaced before the end of the season ramped up over the international break, as Brendan Rodgers and Zinedine Zidane were linked with taking over.

But Solskjaer, who reportedly believes his work at the club deserves more recognition, is standing firm and has been taking training ahead of United’s Premier League clash with Watford on Saturday.

The Red Devils travel to Vicarage Road looking to get back to winning ways after a dismal 2-0 Manchester Derby defeat at the hands of rivals City.

The Sun claim that a number of big-name players are growing disillusioned with Solskjaer’s tactics and team selection.

Paul Pogba has been sent to Dubai to recover from an injury but the club have ‘given up’ hope of the Frenchman, who is out of contract in June, signing a new deal.

Fringe players such Donny van de Beek and Jesse Lingard are said to be confused by their lack of game-time, with both set to consider their future in the January transfer window.

However, the report adds that, while Solskjaer accepts his job is being judged on results, he is frustrated there is not a ‘greater acceptance’ of his positive work at Old Trafford.





The Norwegian and executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward, set to depart before the end of the year, agreed to take a long-term approach in 2019, following the chaos of Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho ‘s respective reigns.

Taking into account United’s league finishes and the squad turnover, Solskjaer has done a decent job by most metrics.

He is now bidding to put a run of six defeats in 12 games in the rear window and after his team’s trip to Watford, the Red Devils can secure Champions League knockout qualification by beating Villarreal.







Man Utd have lost six of their last 12 games



Premier League clashes with rivals Arsenal and Chelsea follow, preceding the always-testing festive period.

The United manager has already challenged his players to come back stronger, declaring post-Derby defeat: “Players are human beings and when you lose a game of football there’s no better remedy than winning a game, getting your confidence back.

“Hopefully, the ones who go away [on international duty] do well.

“For us, it’s all about Watford. We have to come out against Watford like a proper hurt animal and get back to what we know we can be. That’s the only way to approach this and attack the situation.

“The short answer is yes, [the international break] has come at a good time for us now.

“As a group, we’ve had a difficult spell. We’ve come through it but this was a big step backward.”
