Ed Woodward insists Manchester United are ‘firmly committed’ to Ole Gunnar Solskjear as his position at the club comes under scrutiny.

The Norwegian is in the firing line after the Red Devils drew with Everton at Old Trafford on Saturday as they have failed to win three of their last five games in all competitions.

Many United fans feel he has taken the club as far as he can and they need a new manager to lead them to silverware this season.

But executive vice-chairman Woodward, who is set to leave his post at the end of the year, has backed the under-fire boss and insists the club is confident that Solskjaer is the man to take them forward.

Is Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s job at risk? Comment below

He said: “We significantly strengthened the squad over the summer, with the addition of Cristiano Ronaldo, Raphael Varane, Jadon Sancho and Tom Heaton.

“These signings have demonstrated our continued ability to attract some of the world’s best footballers to Old Trafford, and our firm commitment to helping Ole deliver success on the pitch.

“While squad-building is a constant process, we are more confident than ever that we are on the right track.”









Solskjaer insists he will get United back on track after the 1-1 draw with the Toffees.

Asked if he should be getting more out of his squad, he said: “It’s the same question that was asked after Wednesday night.

“I’m very confident that we will get the best out of this squad.

“A lot has happened this month and we’ve had Raphael [Varane] and Jadon [Sancho] with us since August, and Cristiano [Ronaldo] since September.

“We’ve got loads to work on and we need to improve, we know that and I know that, but I do believe in this group of players and the coaching staff that I’ve got. So, the short answer is yes.

“I believe in these players, I believe in the coaching staff and I believe we have something going. The proof is in the pudding, we need results and you have to turn up.

“You can’t say ‘we did well against City and Tottenham last year’, we have to do it during the 90 minutes, whoever plays.

“That’s the challenge because every game in the Champions League and Premier League is a big game against a good team and every game as Manchester United is a potential banana skin, as we’re expected to win every one.”
