Manchester United will keep Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on the bench, despite the 0-5 conceded against Liverpool, before a decisive week for the ‘Red Devils’.
In just seven days, the English team will face Tottenham Hotspur, Atalanta in the Champions League and Manchester City. United will have time to prepare for the clashes by not playing the League Cup this week, as they were eliminated by West Ham United in the previous round.
Despite the severe blow of the 0-5 defeat at Old Trafford, the first time in 60 years that they suffered this result at home, United, according to the English media, have decided not to fire Solskjaer.
The Norwegian coach has United seventh in the table, eight points behind the leader, after a summer with large investments in the team, with the signings of Cristiano Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane.
Yet these additions, which should have made United a title contender eight years after they last won the Premier League, have not fixed the problems of a team that has not found glory since Alex Ferguson left.
The ‘Red Devils’ are close to completing four years since their last title, which came from the hand of José Mourinho, who was replaced by Solskjaer as a temporary solution, but who has been in charge for almost three years. EFE (HN)
