Sky Sports’ James Cooper, meanwhile, says that United have told him that they are not looking to axe Solskjaer despite claims they are in contact with Solskjaer’s representatives.
“From what I’m being told, Manchester United still see Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as a long-term project and somebody who should be given the backing and support to do this job,” he said.
“I don’t think anything’s changed. What’s their reaction to the last couple of days? I think it’s not good.
“A week ago, we were all saying what an amazing coach and how things have changed under Solskjaer. He out thought RB Leipzig when they won 5-0 at Old Trafford and everything seemed to be changing.
“The flipside to that is, how on earth did those players beat Leipzig 5-0 and then put in the performances that we’ve seen over the last couple of games?
“There are major question marks. You saw Solskjaer last night – he was furious with what happened in Istanbul. He protected his players, didn’t criticise them too much.
“But I think you can see that he’s expecting a big turnaround against Everton at the weekend.
