Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskajer is seriously under pressure at the moment.
Although the Baby Faced Assassin enjoyed an excellent summer of recruitment, the on-field results haven’t been anywhere near good enough. So-much-so that the Reds finds themselves comfortably in the bottom half of the Premier League table right now.
Talk has been building about whether Solskjaer is experienced enough to lead United in the long-term, and I guess it was only a matter of time before the rumours started.
Well, according to Italian media outlet Tuttosport, 52-year-old manager Massimiliano Allegri is ‘very close’ to replacing Solskjaer as United manager.
According to the report, ‘Max’ Allegri will sign a deal worth a nice £6.5million a year.
The Italian is currently out of work after leaving Juventus in the summer and it seems as though he could well be back in a job if the aforementioned story turns out to be true.
Honestly, I’m not sure about this. He’s more defensive-minded than United are used to, and again, this club is showing it’s all-too-willing to sack their manager at the first sign of trouble.
It takes time for ideas and tactics to be implemented but this club is so trigger-happy at the moment. What happened to good old-fashioned stability, eh?
