Manchester United will continue to back manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the January transfer window.
That is the message issued by executive vice chairman Ed Woodward, who has said “we will continue to support Ole with a planned, long-term approach to recruitment”.
United have had a mixed start to the season, with disappointing results at Old Trafford contrasting with their away form where they have won a record eight Premier League games on the bounce.
Their Champions League progress though hands in the balance, and they need at least a draw away to RB Leipzig next week to progress to the knock-out phases after they were beaten at home by PSG on Wednesday.
Woodward has also confirmed that United will not be joining any breakaway European Super League, which will come as a relief to the many thousands of their supporters vehemently opposed to the idea. That is despite the fact that they and Liverpool were regarded as the two leading exponents of the idea in Britain.
