BREAKING: Man United Considering SACKING Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Before Tottenham Clash
MANCHESTER UNITED are considering SACKING Ole Gunnar Solskjaer before this weekend's game against Tottenham, according to reports.
The under-fire Norwegian boss, 48, watched in horror as his side was ripped apart by Liverpool at Old Trafford on Sunday. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could be sacked before Saturday's game against Tottenham, according to reports.
And now, Manchester Evening News claims the club is considering axing Solskjaer.
The ex-Cardiff chief could be given the boot BEFORE Saturday's game against Tottenham, with Antonio Conte and Zinedine Zidane linked with taking over.
United have the week off having crashed out of the Carabao Cup at the hands of West Ham last month. That gives club bosses a six-day window between the Liverpool thumping and clash with equally beleaguered Spurs to make a decision.
Man Utd's flops were held behind at Old Trafford for TWO HOURS after the staggering, record-breaking defeat. Managing Director, Richard Arnold reportedly canceled all of his Monday appointments to hold crunch talks with owners, the Glazers. Solskjaer has now overseen five defeats in his last nine matches.
United are also without a win in four Premier League games with their title ambitions already crumbling.
The Red Devils have now slipped to seventh in the league, eight points adrift of leaders Chelsea.
And the 5-0 mauling against Jurgen Klopp's rampant Reds goes down in history as the club's worst EVER home defeat - with Sir Alex Ferguson looking pained as he watched on from the stands. Man Utd players are believed to have Monday off to recover, with no midweek cup action for them.
And they will attempt to bounce back on Saturday when they travel to North London to take on Spurs.
Solskjaer was awarded a new three-year contract in the summer after guiding United to second in the league last term, behind only neighbors Manchester City.
At the time, a United statement claimed 'clear progress had been made under the Norwegian. But despite signing Cristiano Ronaldo, Raphael Varane, and Jadon Sancho in the summer, the club appears to have regressed.
United appears to have no real style or tactics and rely on moments of magic from their superstars. Losing 5-0 to Liverpool appears to be the final straw with Solskjaer potentially set for the sack this week.
After the Liverpool humiliation, he said: "I do believe in myself, I do believe that I am getting close to what I want with the club. "I think what we've done, what I've seen, the development, of course, the results lately haven't been good enough, it's hands up and that brings doubt in anyone's mind probably.
"But I've got to keep strong and I do believe in what we've been doing, the coaching staff, the players. "Today's rock bottom, low in confidence.
"Next week is Tottenham away, it's a Champions League game Atalanta, the next team who visits us is Man City. "We have to look forward, sort our frames of mind out and make sure we go into the next training session in the right frame of mind."
