Sky Sports reports that the Norwegian will not leave the club as opposed to rumors surrounding his future. The Manchester United board is understood to have discussed the future of his manager yesterday.

The sudden news of stay has raised tension to his squad which the telegraph publication says they are confused over the style of the play they have been adopting.

It alleges that during the Liverpool clash at home Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had directed them to adopt pressing mode of play but they were not clearly briefed on the way to co-ordinate.

To now several replacements have been lined up with former Inter Milan coach Antonio Conte, Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers, Zinedine Zidane, and Ajax coach Ten Haag.

In his post-match briefing, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said that he was not close to giving up hinting a no resignation.

He said; “I have come too far to give up. I am not built that way. “The feeling we have had is we were getting where we wanted to be but in the last few weeks results haven’t come and we have hit a brick wall. We have conceded too many easy goals and that is a concern.”
