Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has responded to questions over his future.
United were wretched in defeat against City, totally outclassed at Old Trafford. The 2-0 scoreline flattered United.
Pressure will grow on Solskjaer’s future, with fans calling for him to go.
Solskjaer says he does not believe he is on borrowed time.
In a post-game interview with BBC Sport, Solskjaer cited his good relationship with the board and says he hopes to turn this around.
United are now heading into a two-week international break and this is an ideal time to make a change.
The problem is the lack of a standout, obvious candidate to come in right away.
United passed on Antonio Conte last week, who went to take over at Tottenham.
United might take the view that Solskjaer has to go regardless, and then figure it out from there.
You can rely on United’s incompetent board to make a mess of it and probably make the wrong appointment.
But carrying on like this seems unsustainable. United could be 11 points off the top by the end of the weekend.
With just five league wins all season from 11 games, United are going nowhere.
Solskjaer sounds like a manager who is in denial. Fans are turning against him and the team needs a fresh approach. He seems to have run out of ideas.
