Solskjaer’s future in the hands of Joel Glazer, Overmars remains at Ajax after Newcastle tie, Trent’s youth league – The Athletic



Manchester United saw their season hit a new low on Saturday when they were largely beaten by Manchester City at Old Trafford, stepping up the watch around Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The United manager was once again the center of attention after his side slipped to a sixth loss in 12 appearances in all competitions. Losing the Manchester derby means United are nine points behind Premier League leaders Chelsea after just 11 games.

But despite growing speculation about Solskjaer’s future, there is no indication in the club’s hierarchy that a change is imminent. As it stands, he will be in charge of United’s next game – Watford on November 20.

City’s result follows an equally one-sided home loss to rivals Liverpool in the previous home game and is sure to test United’s leadership resolve as they have regular talks during the international break. Those in power still want Solskjaer to succeed, but it is not known for how long that desire can trump reality.

There is always a tipping point in these situations, but signs that United executives believe it has happened have yet to emerge. If the team’s form does not improve, the pressure will increase on the decision makers.
