Man United is silent on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, how to fire Mourinho, after backing him

Manchester United are silent on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, much like when they fired José Mourinho, after backing him previously … and may even face the boot this week amid fears that he is too soft on his stars.







Manchester United are silent amid mounting speculation about the future of manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

United have been thrown into crisis by Sunday’s catastrophic 5-0 loss to bitter rivals Liverpool at Old Trafford, casting further doubt on Solskjaer’s position.

It is not the first time that the future of the Norwegian has been questioned since he returned to the club to succeed José Mourinho almost three years ago.

While United sources have previously offered Solskjaer unequivocal endorsement, however, the silence at Old Trafford on Monday was deafening. Given the repeated opportunities to offer the manager a vote of confidence, none have been presented.

Sportsmail understands that Solskjaer was in Carrington for two and a half hours at lunchtime despite the players and coaching staff having a day off. Raphael Varane, Nemanja Matic and Phil Jones were the only players on the training ground along with goalkeeping coach Richard Hartiss.

Solskjaer is preparing for Sunday’s trip to Tottenham, but there are no guarantees that he will remain in charge as Presidents Joel and Avi Glazer hold talks with Executive Vice President Ed Woodward and Managing Director Richard Arnold on how to handle the crisis.

There is concern that Solskjaer does not have the experience to get out of trouble and is too soft on his players. Mike Phelan is understood to be a more peripheral figure now despite having recently signed a new contract, and coaches Kieran McKenna and Michael Carrick, who have yet to agree to new deals, are also too inexperienced.

United’s humiliation at the hands of Liverpool was their fifth loss in the last nine games, and the first time they have lost 5-0 at home in 66 years. It equaled his record loss to Liverpool in 1925.

Four of the next five league games are against Spurs, Manchester City, Chelsea and Arsenal, raising fears that the crisis could only get worse.

Solskjaer insisted that he would not resign after Sunday’s debacle, despite describing it as his “darkest day,” but admitted that the decision is out of his hands.

“I haven’t heard anything else (from the club) and I’m still thinking about tomorrow’s work,” he said.

Of course, we are all low. I can’t say now that I have felt worse than this. It’s the worst I’ve ever been, the lowest I’ve ever been, but I accept the responsibility. That’s mine today and it’s mine in the future. ‘
