Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Shrugs Off Man Utd Sack Speculation As Red Devils Return To Training

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer appears in good spirits as he fights to save his job at Manchester United.

The United boss is under increasing pressure at Old Trafford with his side languishing in 12th in the Premier League table.

Sunday’s defeat to struggling Newcastle saw United’s campaign hit a new low, with chief Ed Woodward growing increasingly frustrated with his side’s poor form.

A heavy defeat to arch-rivals and Premier League leaders Liverpool after the international break could be the end for the Norwegian.

But Solskjaer is optimistic he can turn things around as he gave a thumbs-up upon arrival at Carrington on Wednesday morning.

While some clubs have given their players a week off for the international break, the United boss has hauled his misfiring squad in.

Those players that are not away with their country or are injured all reported for training on Wednesday.

Among them were Anthony Martial and Luke Shaw, whose absence has been felt with United struggling in recent weeks.

Fellow sidelined players Jesse Lingard and Eric Bailly also arrived as they continue their respective rehabilitation.

Juan Mata was also back at Carrington and has urged his fellow senior players to do more to help United’s youngsters.

Solskjaer has included a host of starlets in his first-team squad this season with Mason Greenwood and Axel Tuanzebe particularly catching the eye.

A lengthy injury list has forced Solskjaer to call on the youngsters more often in recent weeks with Tahith Chong, Angel Gomes and Brandon Williams all on the bench at Newcastle.

“We have young players coming through and sometimes I see myself in them,” Mata told Sky Sports.

“I remember when I was at Valencia at 18 or 19 years old, I had some difficult moments because I didn’t play a lot in the beginning but I had some older players helping me.

“That’s what I think experienced players have to do with young players.

“They have, hopefully, many years to grow as a player and many games to enjoy their football at this club and we as older players we are here to help them.”
