United backing Solskjaer

Manchester United are absolutely committed to ole Gunnar Solskjaer remaining as manager.

That is according to comments made by Ed Woodward, the club’s executive vice-chairman in the club’s first-quarter results which have just been published.

There was intense speculation that United were thinking about a change after their mixed start to the season, with Mauricio Pochettino seemingly poised in the wings ready to take over, but Woodward’s remarks would seem to have put an end to those rumours for now.

United are 14th in the table, having won three and lost three of their opening seven Premier League games, and whilst they beat both PSG and RB Leipzig in the Champions League, they suffered an embarrassing loss to the Turkish side Istanbul Besaksehir.

The United figures revealed a drop in revenue of nearly 20#% over the same period last year, with matchday income significantly impacted by having to pay matches behind closed doors. Commercial revenues also showed a decline.
