No plans to replace Solskjaer at Old Trafford

Manchester United have no plans to replace manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer despite Saturday’s defeat in the Manchester derby.

There is no indication coming from the club of Solskjaer losing his job and as things stand he is expected to be in charge to face Watford after the international break.

Speculation was intense with regards to his position following the 5-0 humiliation by Liverpool, but the focus from within the club at that time was about improving and fixing the issues.

A victory at Spurs together with a draw at Atalanta which kept United top of their Champions League group last week seemed to have calmed the situation, however Saturday’s 2-0 loss to City reignited the questions over Solskjaer’s future.

Speaking following that City victory, Gary Neville suggested a decision would not be made until after the departure of Ed Woodward at the end of the year.

No decision has been announced as to a successor to Woodward, however according to reliable sources,the process will have no bearing on any decisions which may or may not be made regarding the manager, as ultimately the board decide such decisions as a whole with the final sign-off coming from Joel Glazer.
