The United manager seemed visibly upset as questions arise on his team selections and tactical consistency. He took the fall for his side’s defeat, also speaking about the future of his employment.

“I’ve heard nothing else. Still thinking about tomorrow’s work. Of course, we are low now. I can’t say now that we feel any worse than this. This is the worst I have been. The lowest I have been. I accept the responsibility and that is mine today, and it’s mine going forward,” said Solskjaer.

The team is winless in four PL games even as Cristiano Ronaldo pulled them out of their misery on several occasions.

Although they have many talented players, team chemistry and morale are down. Players are facing questions about their commitment to the club from pundits and fans. Ronaldo’s arrival was supposedly a turning point for the club, but things have gone down south ever since.

It’s been three years since Ole is at the wheel and United has not won a trophy since. With the likes of Zinedine Zidane and Antonio Conte in the market, time is not a friend of the Norwegian coach. Courtesy of poor results, the manager now faces inquest at his coaching and the ability to lead a big club.

The next three games will be crucial for the club and the manager. They play an away game against Tottenham Hotspur next weekend while going to Italy to face Atlanta in the Champions League. Soon after, they face arch-rivals Manchester City. Undoubtedly, if Solskjaer doesn’t get his team up and running, it might signal the end of his stay in Manchester.
