Solskjaer has equalled a record that made Manchester United sack two former managers after Sir Alex Ferguson
Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has always been issued with sack threats on the papers and on the lips of pundits, but the Norwegian seems to have the trust of the board after being given a recent contract.
Following the defeat to West Ham on Wednesday, Solskjaer has now equalled the run of form that saw David Moyes sacked as Manchester United boss.
Solskjaer has won just five of his last ten games in charge, losing two and drawing three of those games.
United have now won just five of their last ten matches in all competitions, and it was the same run of result that got rid of Moyes back in 2014.
In his last ten games in charge, Solskjaer has won Premier League games against West Ham, Newcastle, Wolves and Leeds this season – as well as Wolves in the final game of last term. He has however recorded draws against Fulham and Villarreal from last season, and Southampton this season. Out of the ten games, he has recorded two defeats against Young Boys and West Ham. Moyes on the other hand, had four losses and a draw as he only got five wins in his last ten games.
Louis van Gaal had a better record in his last ten games as he won 7, drew 2 and lost 1, but it wasn’t enough to keep him. His successor Jose Mourinho had a similar record to Moyes as he won just two of his last eight matches in all competitions before being sacked after a poor 3-1 defeat to Liverpool.
Manchester United have started the Premier League season well under Solskjaer. Do you think Solskjaer can lead United all the way?
