The match against Liverpool at Old Trafford, which will take place after the national team games are over, could be crucial to the fate of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as Manchester United coach.
Norwegian coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes a defeat in Manchester United’s next game against Liverpool would result in his dismissal from the coaching position, reports the Daily Mail.
Solskjaer is under a lot of pressure in the coach’s chair, as the Red Devils have marked the worst start to a new Premier League season in 30 years, losing their last game against Newcastle.
Speaking on Sunday, Solskjaer described the Liverpool clash at Old Trafford on October 20 as the perfect match.
However, the Daily Mail reports that privately he fears another defeat would increase pressure on the club’s governing board to make changes.
The first name on United’s wish list is former Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri, who has taken an intensive English language course during this break after leaving Juventus.
