Ole Gunnar Solskjaer not fearing for job amid Manchester United struggles

The Ivorian has been sidelined with a serious knee injury suffered in pre-season but is in contention to face Rovers after proving his fitness.

Executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward and the club's owners the Glazer family have come under enormous criticism over United's recruitment in recent years.

Simon Jordan: "Ole Gunnar Solskjaer doesn't talk like a leader or an elite manager ... because he's not!"

"Eric has had a couple of behind-closed-doors games here", said the United boss.

"You need to knock the house down, you don't just start with the roof, we've had some rainy days and wish that the roof was on, but we can't hide".

"This generation coming through, with astro turf and nice pitches, they get lazier in the heads". "It's the second day today [after Burnley], recovery".

"Victor will be available again", Solskjaer told MUTV.

"I have not thought "Oh, I wish I had kept him".

Axel Tuanzebe is still on the treatment table, with Solskjaer revealing the centre-back will not return until mid-February.

'We are looking to improve, we have got our targets, ' Solskjaer said.

"I've got to make sure that when we spend the money now it's on the right players and the right types, who will be here in the long run and will add quality now".

The Red Devils have been left short on options up front for the remainder of the 2019-20 campaign after losing Marcus Rashford, who has been ruled out of action for potentially three months with a stress fracture in his back.

According to The Times, Solskjaer believes six signings are required including a full-back, two central midfielders, a No.10, a winger and a striker.

Nemanja Matic could be handed a well-earned rest so Andreas Pereira may be asked to operate in a deeper role while Jesse Lingard will line up at No 10.

Mauricio Pochettino will be the favorite for this job should Solskjaer be released from his duties - but the mail claims that Southgate also plays a big role in United's eyes and is seen as an ideal manager for continuing to support the club's youth development.
