Victor Lindelof has dismissed fears that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s job is under threat following Manchester United’s poor run of form.

The Red Devils were beaten 1-0 at struggling Newcastle last Sunday and their only victory in their last five outings in all competitions was a penalty shoot-out success over League One side Rochdale in the Carabao Cup.

United have claimed just nine points from their opening eight games in the Premier League and are 12th in the table, 15 points behind leaders Liverpool.

However, Lindelof says that Solskjaer is a good coach and that the Norwegian seems to be coping well with the pressure.

“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.”
