Alex Ferguson blocks Man Utd from sacking Solskjaer after Liverpool defeat


Legendary Manchester United manager, Sir Alex Ferguson, has influenced the club’s decision over Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s future.

According to transfer expert, Fabrizio Romano, senior officials at Old Trafford were in an urgent meeting on Monday.

The meeting took place 24 hours after United were hammered 5-0 by Liverpool at home in the Premier League.

However, during the discussions, Ferguson made a case for Solskjaer to continue as the team prepares for a trip to Tottenham Hotspur next.

Romano tweeted: “Manchester United internal talks. Main part of board [Sir Alex Ferguson too] wants to give Solskjær another chance to be in charge for Tottenham game.

“Pressure still high around Ole. No official talks with Antonio Conte – but he’d accept the job in the next days too.”

It is understood that Solskjaer took training on Tuesday morning ahead of the fixture.
