Man Utd board standing by Solskjaer - into next season

Manchester United chiefs are backing manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to the hilt.

The Sun says the Old Trafford board are committed to backing Solskjaer in this transfer window AND in the summer.

Executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward and the owning Glazer family will not waver from their plan to reboot the club based on youth, with Solskjaer at the helm.

Woodward has come under fire from United legend Gary Neville, who said he should be sacked for the club's failings.

It has been claimed former Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino is waiting for a call from Woodward to take over from Solskjaer.

One agent has even checked with Poch what his requirements would be to go to Old Trafford.

The club, however, are not considering him at the moment having invested so much trust in Solskjaer.
