Ed Woodward has offered assurances that Ole Gunnar Soljkjaer’s job as Manchester United manager is safe.
Manchester United have made a disappointing start to the Premier League campaign, as they sit 14th after seven games.
This start has included defeats to Crystal Palace and Arsenal, as well as their 6-1 loss at Old Trafford against Tottenham.
Man Utd have picked up some decent wins along the way against Newcastle United and Everton. They also made a great start in the Champions League.
The Red Devils picked up impressive victories over PSG and RB Leipzig, who both reached the semi-final stage last year.
But their latest outing in the Champions League ended in a surprising 2-1 defeat to İstanbul Başakşehir. After this latest damaging result, the pressure was seemingly mounting on Solksjaer.
But Man Utd’s executive vice-chairman has come out to squash talk of Solksjaer’s job being under threat. In his statement, as cited by Manchester Evening News, Woodward said:
“On the pitch, while there is still hard work ahead to achieve greater consistency, we remain absolutely committed to the positive path we are on under Ole as the team continues to develop.
“We miss playing in front of our fans and we are working hard together with our governing bodies and relevant authorities to ensure that fans can safely return as soon as possible.”
Mark Smith and Matt Stead know all about disappointments. Join them to discover that Chelsea are the only Big Six club without representation on this week’s top ten.
