Speaking after the 2-0 Manchester derby defeat at Old Trafford, United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer faced questions about his future after a fourth league defeat in six games; Asked if he feels like he is on borrowed time, Solskjaer told Sky Sports: “No, I don’t start to feel like that.”
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insists he is not on borrowed time after the humbling 2-0 derby defeat to Manchester City at Old Trafford.
It was another dismal display at home for United following the 5-0 thrashing by Liverpool and their fourth defeat in six Premier League games.
Solskjaer, who described the derby performance as “passive”, is now facing an enormous amount of pressure as speculation about his future builds.
Asked if he is beginning to feel like he is on borrowed time, Solskjaer told Sky Sports: “No, I don’t start to feel like that.
“I have good communication all the time with the club that’s very up-front and honest about the situation.”
Solskjaer hopes the international break will offer some respite for his team, who were on the end of some tough criticism in the Sky Sports studio for their performance against City.
Roy Keane said he had given up on the United players, singling out Luke Shaw, Harry Maguire, Eric Bailly, Fred and Aaron Wan-Bissaka for criticism, before warning Solskjaer he could not rely on this squad.
