Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may be getting sacked soon

The United board has set an ultimatum for Solskjaer. The next three games will determine his future with the club. However, the next three games see them visiting Tottenham Hotspur next weekend, which is followed by a Champions League match with Atlanta in Italy. In the third game, they host Premier League champions, Manchester City.

Manchester City are one of the favorites for the title this season as well. The differences between the two Manchester clubs are staggering, and the game against Old Trafford might be the final nail in the coffin for Ole and his side.

What should Ole do to change the situation at Manchester United?

Even though Ronaldo has scored goals for United to take them home, there have been doubts about Sancho and Varane. Despite Varane being a talented defender, his injury record is not good on paper. Moreover, Sancho has not been featured in games as even though he was labeled a key signing for the club.

In the next three games, the focus for Solskjaer has to be on being solid defensively. A run of clean sheets would do his United team a world of good. Whether he’s the man to take them further remains to be seen.
