Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says The Sun’s report this morning on his future at Manchester United is full of “blatant lies”.
The Red Devils boss has come under increasing pressure with Man Utd in a poor position in the Premier League following their bad start to the season.
And The Sun newspaper claimed on Tuesday that Solskjaer was only two losses away from the sack, quoting a ‘source’ that said an ’emotional’ Solskjaer told his players ‘he could be gone’ if they don’t pick up results this week.
“No, it doesn’t make me more concerned,” said Solskjaer when asked about the story in The Sun. “I’m just focusing on my job and that’s doing as well as I can, look forward to the next game, look long term and plan things with board.
“I’m good, absolutely no problem, sometimes you laugh when you read stories about what I’ve said, but at least I know the sources are not sources and are just made up, blatant lies.
“It’s that time of year, it’s never nice to see your colleagues lose their job in a very short space of time.
“With some of them, you can talk about VAR all day long. You don’t know the reasons, but one result, Southampton against Watford, with the handball, and we’re talking about something completely different. Sometimes you have luck, sometimes you don’t.
“We’ve had too many draws for my liking, some defeats of course, but draws we should have turned into wins and football is a results business.
“I’m not happy, I know we can do better and are working hard. The work is always geared on us improving but we’re not getting all the results we’ve deserved.”
