Manchester United has had a worst possible start to the season, and the future of United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer seems to be shaky.

According to Daily Mail, Solskjaer is worried executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward will come under huge pressure to sack him if United lose heavily to Liverpool.

A 3-1 defeat to Liverpool last December at Anfield sealed Jose Mourinho’s fate as Manchester United boss and Liverpool might become responsible for the sack of another Manchester United boss.

Some United fans have already seen enough of the Norwegian and are calling for the club to sack him.

Manchester United are already being linked with former AC Milan and Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri as fears of Ole’s departure continue to grow.

Allegri is one of the favourites to take over from Solskjaer and is currently out of work after leaving Juventus at the end of last season, having won five straight Serie A titles.

The experienced Italian manager is open to taking over at United despite their current struggles, and Italian newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport report that he is only willing to make the move if it happens sooner rather than later.

Allegri is currently on a sabbatical and was not keen on the idea of taking over a club mid-season, Italian media outlet Gazzetta say there is already a feeling that he is becoming restless to return to management and could be tempted if an offer is made ‘in the next few weeks’, though the chances of him moving in December or later are ‘highly improbable’.
