Ole Gunnar Solskjaer ”angry” at Manchester United board as he refuses to step down as coach

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has refused to resign as Manchester United manager, claiming that he is ‘frustrated’ that he hasn’t been given enough credit for his work at the club.

Despite humiliating defeats to Manchester City and Liverpool in recent weeks, the Norwegian is set to be in charge for Saturday’s trip to Watford.

United is currently in sixth place in the Premier League, nine points behind leaders Chelsea. Solskjaer has lost the backing of his players as a result of their poor form, with senior players such as Cristiano Ronaldo and Bruno Fernandes reportedly furious with him.

Rio Ferdinand suggested Solskjaer should resign following the defeat to Pep Guardiola’s men, saying it’s time for the ‘baton to be handed over’.

‘I was always deep down a bit skeptical. Could he take us on to be champions? I wasn’t fully convinced, I hoped he would be able to do that. But what I’ve seen this season I just feel it might be the time now for the baton to be handed over to somebody else who can take us on now,’ said Ferdinand.

However, according to The Sun, Solskjaer has no intention of stepping down as manager of the Theatre of Dreams and is certain that he can turn things around.

According to the source, Solskjaer is enraged that his reign is being judged solely on the basis of the start of current season, and he believes that people are overlooking his achievements.

The board’s preferred candidate to replace Solskjaer is Brendan Rodgers, but the Norwegian might be given till the end of the season if he can turn things around.
