Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward is prepared to stick with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for the campaign unless the club go through a catastrophic period.
The Red Devils have been average with their displays in the first half of the season and they are currently eight points behind the top four ahead of the festive schedule.
For the next two games, the club will be up against the likes of Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City and there have been calls from some fans for Solskjaer to be sacked, should the players fail to show up in those matches.
However, according to Goal.com, Woodward has given Solskjaer his entire backing and the club won’t consider sacking the Norwegian from the helm even if they finish in mid-table and miss out on European football.
In recent days, there has been the talk of Mauricio Pochettino probably succeeding Solskjaer as the next United manager but that seems unlikely to happen, barring the club going through a wretched run of form.
United have drawn their last two games against Sheffield United and Aston Villa but they have still managed to keep up with the top four due to Chelsea failing to win their last two matches.
