Ole Gunnar Solskajer has told Manchester United players that he has two games to save his job.

There are murmurings out of Old Trafford that Solskajer has told his players he is facing the sack.

It is understood that if the team doesn’t get results against Tottenham and Manchester City in the next two Premier League games, he could be facing the sack.

According to the Sun’s sources, Solskjaer spoke to the layers after the poor performance against Aston Villa, where the manager himself said: “The team were not good enough and didn’t deserve the win.”

The Sun’s source said:

“Ole was a little bit emotional and told them that if they don’t get two results this week, he could be gone.”

“It is the worst time to be facing Spurs with Jose coming back.”

“Ole told the players all his and their focus now has to go straight to the Spurs game.”

” He was not being critical of Jose in any way but made it clear to the players just how much their old boss will want to win.”

It was initially thought that Solaskjaer wold get the time needed to rebuild the faltering giants.

However, Mauricio Pochettino out of the blue is now available and long thought to have been Ed Woodward’s number one choice.

The goalposts have apparently moved and Solskajer is under more pressure than ever.
