Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed that he has the backing of the Manchester United board despite a torrid start to the 2020-21 season.
A generally underwhelming start of the season with back-to-back defeats, pressure continue to mount the Norwegian as his sack is not far from talk at the Theater of Dreams.
Man United will face Everton at Goodison Park today, Saturday, looking to register just their third win of the new campaign, and many has viewed the clash as a potential make-or-break for the club legend.
Solskjaer has however revealed that he has had a long-term discussions with the board of United.
“I am going to say all my conversations with the club have been planning long term,” Solskjaer said ahead of the clash at Merseyside.
“Of course we want results short term but I’ve had positive good dialogue with the plans we have put in place.
“We have planted a seed, the tree is growing. Some clubs just rip up that tree and see if it is still growing and see if it is still getting water underneath.
“For me I have had a backing all the way since I’ve come in on the bigger picture. And the club needs to look at the bigger picture, we can’t go thinking and reacting to one or two results, we have got to look further back and [ask] what is the direction we are going”.
United are currently on the 15th on the league table.
