Solskjaer set for Man United sack after 'dreaded' development - pundit

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has received the “dreaded vote of confidence” and could be dismissed when Man United appoint a new chief exec.

So says ex-Premier League goalkeeper Paddy Kenny, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about the latest developments at Old Trafford.

As quoted by The Mirror on 3 October, Man United supremo Ed Woodward insisted the club are “firmly committed” to Solsjkaer.

But Woodward is set to leave his post at the end of the year and managing director Richard Arnold is favourite to replace him at the helm.

United are currently 4th in the Premier League table but have won just one of their last four matches in all competitions.

They face Leicester City, Liverpool, Tottenham and Man City in their next four league fixtures.

And Kenny insists that Solskjaer’s position is far from secure.

“He’s got that dreaded vote of confidence now,” he told Football Insider correspondent Adam Williams.

“They said it was a three-year project and now, with the players that they’ve signed, it’s time to produce.

“Solskjaer is expected to produce this season and win a trophy. If that doesn’t happen, I can’t see him staying there beyond this season.

“With a new chief exec coming in, that’s only going to put him under more pressure to win games. He could go at any time.

“If they aren’t doing that and the new chief exec doesn’t take a shine to him, I can see a change coming.

“They would have blown Everton and Aston Villa away back in the day and be three or four points clear at the top now.

“If they had Guardiola or Klopp, they would challenge massively.
