Man Utd could sensationally sack Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this week as the fall-out from the 5-0 thrashing by Liverpool on Sunday continues, according to reports. Solskjaer’s side were embarrassed by their north-west rivals at Old Trafford and suffered their third Premier League defeat of the season.
It has long been believed that United’s owners, the Glazer family, have full confidence in Solskjaer but that position might have been changed by the heavy defeat against the Reds.
Mohamed Salah struck a superb hat-trick and there were goals each for Naby Keita and Diogo Jota on a humiliating day for Solskjaer and his players.
Paul Pogba was sent off for a horrible tackle on Keita only 15 minutes after being introduced by his boss at half-time. The Frenchman has handed Solskjaer further issues as he will be suspended for United’s next three games.
However, there is now a chance that the Norwegian will not be in charge for much longer.
According to the Manchester Evening News, the Old Trafford hierarchy are considering sacking the head coach before Saturday’s Premier League clash with Tottenham.
