Manchester United’s hierarchy are concerned about the inconsistency of the club under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, a bold report said. The Norwegian had a positive start to the season with his second championship lead. Even so, it seems that there are some concerns behind the scenes at Old Trafford.
United have made progress under Solskjaer since he replaced Jose Mourinho as manager in December 2018.
He did not initially manage to lead the club into the top 4. The Red Devils finished sixth in the table when Manchester City won the title.
But Solskjaer led United third to last semester and was currently in second place with City above them.
They continue to fight to win the FA Cup and Europa League, trophies they haven’t won since the Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho eras.
With all that said, The Sun says some board members have concerns about Solskjaer and the inconsistent results his team has achieved during this tenure.

United had control of the group stage but were eliminated and lost three of their six games in competition.
Solskjaer recently insisted he was unimpressed with his future, saying, “We live in an earnings business and all I want is for Man United to improve as a team and as a club.
“I have a very good dialogue with the club all the time.
“You have to think long-term and short-term – and I would never think that this is my chance to prove a point and that it’s all about me.
“That is not the point here. Every decision I make is for the good of Man United.
“For me it’s about results and if we keep improving we have a very good chance because this team and this squad are on the right track.”
Woodward has vowed to support Solskjaer on the upcoming transfer windows and said at the start of the season: “What happens on the field is clearly our top priority and while it is not the same without fans in the stadium we have had many since our time Heights seen. ” Last meeting in April, with that unbeaten run of 14 games, third place in the Premier League last season and great wins against PSG and RB Leipzig on our return to the Champions League this season.
“Of course we recognize that there is more hard work ahead of us to achieve the consistency it takes to win trophies.
“However, we are seeing positive signs on the field and on the training ground that strengthen our belief in the progress of Ole, his coaching team and the players.
“I told this forum back in April that we will continue to work to strengthen the cadre while remaining disciplined during the pandemic.
“I think we achieved this. With the additions made in summer, we have increased our total net spending to over 200 million euros since summer 2019 – more than any other major European club during this period.
“We will continue to support Ole with a planned, long-term recruiting approach that focuses on the summer windows.”
United are in action against West Ham on Tuesday night.
And they hope to beat David Moyes’ side for the second time this season.
