Manchester United meet Everton this Saturday in a crucial match for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. With rumours of possible replacements for the manager, a defeat at Goodison Park could be the last straw for Old Trafford’s management.
Manchester United made a big splash in the final stretch of last season and seemed to have finally found the path to greatness in the hands of club legend Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The Norwegian, who took over the reins of the club at a difficult time, had hit the jackpot. Or at least that was the sensation until the start of the season saw bad form return to United.
Manchster United find themselves in a delicate situation in a Premier League in which they have only gained seven points in six games after two wins, a draw and three defeats.
These numbers have the team in 15th position in the table and the ‘Baby-faced Killer’ (nickname of Solskjaer in his time as a player) with a question mark next to his name.
In England there is already speculation about his future, although the club has neither confirmed nor denied anything, a defeat against Everton, a direct rival this season for a place in the Champions League, could lead to his departure.
“The team will respond in Goodison Park. We must rise. Wearing the shield of this shirt is not just anything,” said the coach at the press conference prior to the match. A phrase that only his players can decide if it was a strong statement or his last request to the locker room as United manager.
