Manchester United’s boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s future has been up in the media over the past few weeks, and his job seems uncertain.

Following the defeat to Newcastle just before the international break, Solskjaer’s sack rumours kept making the round as United sit in 12th place and are just 2 points above the drop zone.

Manchester United defender Victor Lindelof believes Solskjaer won’t be sacked and that his job is safe.

“He’s very good,” Lindelof told Swedish outlet Expressen.

“A coach that is easy to talk to and discuss with and who has a good balance when he should be tough and when he should not be tough.

“Since then he has been in the club himself as a player and knows what it takes to succeed there and he has a lot of control.

“You are used to criticism. When you are in United, everything gets much bigger.

“There are more people watching, more people writing about the club than any other club.

“For him it is probably nothing new, he himself has been a player there, then things went a little better for the club, but he knows exactly what it takes to be a player and how much pressure there is on us.

“There is probably no danger to him.”
