Man United interim boss OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER has been tacitly informed by Ed Woodward that he would leave the club at the end of the season regardless of how well he does, that’s the claim of journalist Mark Ogden.
Jose Mourinho was surprisingly axed from the reign of Man United and Solskjaer was called upon to replace him on the interim.
And so far, the Norwegian has led the Red Devils to a barnstorming campaign, winning all five matches since his arrival.
United are now only six points adrift Chelsea in fourth position. There is so much confidence that they could end up in the first quartet of the league.
However, Ogden has suggested that Solskjaer will be replaced at the end of the season with a more experienced manager.
“The remit was for him to come in, steady the ship, get the results back on track, get the players happy again and he’s doing that,” he told ESPN FC.
“That was the remit until the end of the season, to make United a better job for whoever comes in.
Solskjaer has revealed that he would want the job on a permanent basis and there were reports last week that the players have also given him a vote of confidence.
It is heavily claimed that Mauricio Pochettino is the prime target of Manchester United. But the Argentinean has laid bare his desire to stay at Tottenham as long as Arsene Wenger did at Arsenal.
United face their biggest test since the departure of Mourinho when they take on Tottenham Hotspurs in the league. Solskjaer future may depend on how well he fares for against the big teams.
