Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has come under intense pressure to improve at Manchester United after weeks of unsatisfactory results at Old Trafford – and it reports are to be believed, he has also had warnings from Old Trafford chiefs about his performance in the hotseat.
United have only won two of their last six fixtures against uninspiring opponents and can consider themselves lucky having only claimed their two wins in the dying embers of both of those games.
A shock loss at Young Boys in the Champions League has been compounded by losses to West Ham and Aston Villa and a draw against Everton.
United clinched a last-minute win at West Ham in the league, in which the Hammers missed a last-minute penalty to equalise, and a victory over Villarreal courtesy of a last-minute Cristiano Ronaldo winner.
And with fans losing their patience, bosses at Old Trafford have reportedly sounded him out with a warning about his long-term future at the club.
Having only signed a new contract in July to take him to 2024, it is unfathomable to think United could sack him so quickly.

But according to Fabrizio Romano, United bosses have warned Solskjaer that if results don’t improve then they may be forced to revisit the situation.
Talking to The United Stand, Romano stood by the fact United saw Solskjaer as their man for the future, although there was an inkling of doubt.
“As of now, they are not speaking with any other manager,” Romano said.
“They are backing Ole 100 per cent and supporting him. They gave him a new contract in the summer so the message was clear.
“There are keeping the idea of continuing the project with Solskjaer but of course they expect something different, this is part of the game.
“They expect something different in the Premier League and they were lucky in the Champions League against Villarreal.
“They will have Atalanta next who are a hard game and not easy to play, so that will be a good test to understand the state of United.

“But as of now they are with the manager, they are happy – although they expect Ole to change the situation in the next couple of weeks.”
United have been linked with Antonio Conte and Zinedine Zidane in recent weeks should Solskjaer be axed.
And it is likely the duo will be watching United’s next fixture against Leicester City in twelve days’ time as pressure slowly increases on Solskjaer.
