Man Utd players demand board stands by Solskjaer

Manchester United players are urging club chiefs to stand by manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The Times says United's senior stars told the club's board that Solskjaer is the man to bring success back to Old Trafford before their win over Tottenham.

Established members of their squad have pleaded with United's decision makers to give Solskjaer time in order for him to rebuild the club.

Mauricio Pochettino and Massimiliano Allegri have been linked with the club during recent weeks but United's players would be against a mid-season managerial change.

The club's board are also keen to give Solskjaer time as the club legend looks to clean up the mess made by David Moyes, Louis van Gaal and Mourinho following Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement in 2013.
