What is going on?

Manchester United's board kept supporting Solskjaer, even after his horrific defeats, Including a 5-0 loss against Liverpool and a 2-0 loss against Manchester City. However, there was the belief that the Norwegian was the man of choice to work and perform with the project they have been building for nearly three years. 

Now with incoming Premier League News, it is expected that Solskjaer will be sacked following their defeat. It is visibly clear that he is not expected to guide United's next match against the Spanish side Villarreal.

The club's official held conversations regarding that Solskjaer's staff would remain at the club if he gets sacked. There was also a discussion about the payout Solskjaer will receive for his dismissal, with those details still to be finalized.

However, it is more likely that Darren Fletcher or Michael Carrick will take charge of the team after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer gets relieved of his position.

Solskjaer was asked during his post-match press conference about him being the right man for United.

He replied: "I always have belief in myself, of course, at the minute it's a difficult time for us. I can see, I can trust every single one out there to give their all. The staff is fantastic. But the results are difficult. I believe we can turn this around."

How did the players react? 

After the full-time whistle, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer went out on the pitch at Vicarage Road. To applaud and put his hands up to apologize for another defeat to their fans.
