Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reportedly told his players after the defeat to Newcastle United on Sunday that they could regret their performances this season if he is sacked.
Solskjaer goes into the international break facing mounting pressure after the 1-0 defeat to Steve Bruce’s side, which kept the club on its worst away run since 1989 and left the Red Devils 12th in the Premier League table.
According to The Sun, the Norwegian boss told his players that they face the risk of being sold on by the next manager who comes in at Old Trafford, if he is sacked and they are unable to put in better performances.
The newspaper adds that Solskjaer is beginning to lose faith in his squad behind the scenes, despite insisting in public interviews that his young team are still finding their feet in the Premier League.
United were slammed by pundits following their third league defeat of the season on Sunday, with Gary Neville claiming that the club’s board was responsible for their slump in form and Paul Ince questioning David de Gea’s post-match interview.
