Manchester United owners of the Glazers have assured Ole Gunnar Solskjaer his job at Old Trafford is safe until the end of the season. However, they also set two targets for the Norwegian in order for him to fend off the sack.
Manchester United boss Solskjaer has overseen a turbulent campaign at Old Trafford, with the club winning just nine of their 24 Premier League matches this season.
That’s not how the Red Devils imagined life under the – – year-old when they named him as permanent boss back in March last year.
The specter of Mauricio Pochettino looms large over United, with the former Tottenham boss is currently available AND having support from within the Old Trafford boardroom.
And The Mirror say that, with United struggling, Solskjaer has been given the tasks of either winning the Europa League or finishing in the top four.
This was seen as vital for the club’s finances but both seem difficult to achieve at present.
