Man Utd icon Sir Alex Ferguson 'personally intervenes' on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sacking


Sir Alex Ferguson has reportedly told Manchester United to give his former player Ole Gunnar Solskjaer the chance to turn things around against Tottenham. Despite intensive speculation regarding the manager’s future, the Red Devils are now expected to stand by Solskjaer for at least one more match, presenting him with an opportunity to prove his worth following the 5-0 defeat to Liverpool.

While Conte is keen on the job, he is still yet to hear from United despite some suggestion in Italy that initial contact has been made.

Solskjaer himself remains adamant he is the right man for the job as he went on the defence after his side’s alarming collapse against the Reds.

“We’ve come too far as a group and we’re too close to give up now,” he said on Sunday.

“I’ve heard nothing else [about a potential departure]. This is the lowest I’ve been, but as I’ve said, I accept the responsibility.

“I do believe in myself, I do believe that I am getting close to what I want with the club, I think what we’ve done, what I’ve seen, the development, of course, the results lately haven’t been good enough.

“But I’ve got to keep strong and I do believe in what we’ve been doing, the coaching staff and the players.”

Solskjaer is now expected to take training as normal throughout the week as he prepares his side for Saturday’s trip to Spurs.

Graham Potter has also emerged as a wildcard, potential long-term option for the Red Devils if Solskjaer is dismissed, according to The Athletic.
