Manchester United have no intention of sacking Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the immediate future and he will remain in charge for the club’s upcoming encounter against Tottenham, according to The Athletic.
The Norwegian coach is under increasing pressure at Old Trafford following a run of one win in five games across all competitions.
The Red Devils’ poor run of form continued at the weekend when they were picked apart by Leicester City and eventually succumbed to a 4-2 defeat at the King Power Stadium.
United will now have to negotiate their way through arguably their toughest set of fixtures so far, which sees them face the likes of Atalanta, Liverpool, Tottenham, Manchester City, Villarreal, Chelsea and Arsenal.
Despite the side’s struggles, The Athletic report that Solskjaer will not be sacked ahead of the club’s tough run, which means he will likely remain in charge for the encounter at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium at the end of October.
The report outlines the fact that Solskjaer has ‘a lot of credit in the bank’ at United, even though he has been unable to deliver silverware since his appointment in December 2018.

Solskjaer may want to count himself lucky to have such a strong backing after recent managerial performances. For Spurs, though, they may want to focus on bettering themselves first before looking towards the United fixture, which is still a couple of weeks away.
