Ole Gunnar Solskjaer disclosed to his team that he has a chance of getting fired if they don’t win the Tottenham and Manchester City matches this week.
The club is struggling to earn their place in the Champions League next season as it is. Manchester United had faced a 2-2 draw when playing with Aston Villa on Sunday, which added more stress on Ole. As of now, Manchester United’s place has come down and are 8 points deficit of Chelsea.
Another thing for Solskjaer to worry about is that Mauricio Pochettino is up for grabs as a manager ever since he was let go by Tottenham the previous month. Ole’s position presently seems to be quite uncertain and whether he will be sacked or not by Manchester United is now a bit of a delicate situation – more like a guessing game.
‘Ole was a little bit emotional and told them that if they don’t get two results this week, he could be gone.’ An anonymous source claimed.
‘It is the worst time to be facing Spurs with Jose coming back.’
‘Ole told the players all his and their focus now has to go straight to the Spurs game. ‘He was not being critical of Jose in any way but made it clear to the players just how much their old boss will want to win.’
