Man Utd boss Solskjaer blasts flops and says: ‘You’re going to get me the sack’ – The Sun
OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER told his Manchester United flops: "You’re going to get me the sack".
And the Red Devils boss even warned them the axe could fall on him if they get thumped at home to Liverpool straight after the international break.
United have had their worst start to a season in 30 years and a 1-0 defeat at Newcastle on Sunday left them just two points above the relegation zone.
After the match Solskjaer ripped into the players and for the second week running branded their performance “embarrassing”.
Then he warned them his job is now on the line despite a public vote of confidence from Ed Woodward a fortnight ago when the club’s financial results were released.
In a no-nonsense message, Solskjaer also told the players their own futures were on the line as a new boss would not necessarily back them like he has.
Solskjaer has won just five of his last 23 games in charge.
Executive vice-chairman Woodward has supported the Norwegian’s rebuilding plans with a focus on youth but United could even be in for a relegation fight.
The hierarchy were prepared to end the reigns of David Moyes, Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho when results and performances were much better than this.
Striker Marcus Rashford is hurt by a woeful start that sees United in 12th.
Rashford has not scored from open play since the 4-0 opening-day win over Chelsea at Old Trafford.
He tweeted: “You can’t hide in football and the last few weeks haven’t been good enough — as a United fan, that hurts.”
