Ed Woodward backs Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

According to The Independent, Manchester United vice-chairman Ed Woodward has thrown in his weight behind Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The United boss has been under the spotlight after what was a poor start to the season. United lost three of their first seven games and are yet to pick up three points at home in the Premier League this season.

It led to speculation that the Norwegian was facing the sack, with Mauricio Pochettino potentially being lined up. A comprehensive win away to Everton last week appears to have eased the pressure off Solskjaer somewhat.

Speaking on the release of United’s quarterly financial results, Woodward revealed that Solskjaer retains the full support of the club.

While he admits there is work to be done on the pitch, he also says there is no lack of faith. The Red Devils have shown numerous times as to what they can do at their best. However, we have lacked a measure of consistency.

“We remain absolutely committed to the positive path we are on under Ole as the team continues to develop.”

With the noose off his neck, Solskjaer can now work to ensure the promise shown at Goodison Park is carried forward.

Despite being in 14th spot, United have a game in hand and are just eight points off the top. A good run of results can help us clsoe the gap on the summit.

With the game against an abject West Bromwich Albion at Old Trafford next, United have the chance to secure their first home win of the Premier League season.

Woodward’s vote of confidence should ease Solskjaer’s mind and help him focus on the on-field matters. United need to figure out how to reproduce their best on a regular basis.

Now that he has apparently been given the time to do so, it is up to the Norwegian to prove that placing faith in him was not misguided.
