Ole Gunnar Solskjaer refuses to be drawn into discussing his Manchester United future
The Norwegian’s position at Old Trafford would have been further weakened after the loss to Istanbul Basaksehir yesterday.
“I decline to comment.”
Rather than just the result, questions have to be asked regarding the tactics and the defensive setup. Our backline was all over the place and none can come up with an excuse for Demba Ba’s opener.
Solskjaer believes everyone has an opinion and it is too early to make a call. He went on to add that it is up to him to do his best.
“I have got to stay strong. I am employed by the club to do a job and will do it to the best of my ability.”
He admitted that yesterday’s defensive display was unfortunate. The Red Devils were constantly caught out by the Turks, who took advantage of our shoddy defending.
It was our fourth loss of the season and our second straight such result in four days. Solskjaer will be under pressure to reverse the trend when we take on Everton this weekend.
A trip to Goodison Park is never easy. But given our troubles at home, maybe it is the best time to play the Toffees. United have picked up just one point from their four home games in the Premier League so far.
Everton are coming off two losses in a row. This has put a dent on their excellent start to the season. United should do their bit to show the Toffees their place.

It remains to be seen if Solskjaer is fighting for his future. His comments do little to inspire confidence otherwise.
The Norwegian recently defended his players after comments from Roy Keane. It is fair to say there was little favour returned on the field yesterday.
