Former Arsenal star, Paul Merson, has said Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is lucky to still be Manchester United manager.

 

Many expected the 48-year-old to be fired following a 5-0 defeat to Liverpool on Sunday.

 

However, after senior officials met earlier in the week, Solskjaer has been given three games to save his job.

 

Merson told Sky Sports: “I don’t like seeing any manager get the sack but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is very fortunate to still be in a job. He’s as lucky as you can become as a manager.

 

“I don’t care what anybody says but if any other manager at any other club in Europe lost 5-0 at home to your biggest rivals, the manager is gone. If Chelsea or Arsenal lost 5-0 at home to Tottenham, the manager would do well to still be there on the Monday morning.

 

“Manchester United have won just one Premier League game in five, that just isn’t acceptable, and yet the manager has still got a job. I don’t know what’s going on at the club.”

    1. Manchester United have accepted that their midfielder, Paul Pogba, will leave the Red Devils on a free transfer at the end of the season, ESPN reports.

      Man United’s hierarchy have felt for several months that Pogba would not sign a new contract at Old Trafford and are now resigned to losing him on a free transfer next summer.

      The report added that the Premier League giants will not be looking to secure a transfer fee for the 28-year-old by selling him in the January window, and are planning to keep the midfielder for the remainder of the season.

      Man United are also said to be already making plans for Pogba’s exit and will strengthen their midfield options next summer.

      Pogba has entered the final year of his contract at Man United and has so far failed to agree on a new deal with the club.

      The France international has drawn the interest of Real Madrid, Barcelona, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain in the past.

      Speaking on Pogba’s future earlier this week, the player’s agent, Mino Raiola said:
