Man Utd STILL not planning to sack Solskjaer and will get Watford match to turn it around amid axe calls

MANCHESTER UNITED boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is reportedly set to STAY in charge – for the Watford game at least.

The Red Devils fell to a lacklustre 2-0 home defeat to fierce rivals Manchester City at the weekend, in a game they never looked like getting anything out of.

That came after Cristiano Ronaldo rescued them with a last-second equaliser in a 2-2 Champions League draw at Atalanta.

But according to The Athletic 'there remains no indication from the club hierarchy that a change is imminent'.

That means the Norwegian will take charge for United's next Premier League game at home to Watford on November 20.

The club's owners, the Glazer family, still want Solskjaer to succeed, 'but it is unclear for how long that desire can override reality'.

And former United star Gary Neville has given his reasoning as to why Solskjaer will NOT be sacked just yet.

He thinks Ed Woodward won't want his final act as CEO to be firing a manager.


Neville tweeted: The situation at United is made more complicated with Ed W leaving in weeks .

"He gave OGS a 3 year contract months ago and he won’t want his final act to be sacking a manager."

Although, Neville did also see a reason Woodward might want to fire Solskjaer.

He added: "He [Woodward] knows an incoming CEO could throw him overboard by doing just that [sacking Solskjaer] and blaming him!"

Woodward announced that he would be leaving Man United at the end of this year, in the wake of the European Super League scandal back in April.

The Red Devils then handed Solskjaer a new three-year contract in July.
