Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar solsjkaer has come under increased criticism following his side’s poor run of form in the last few matches.

However, former club chief Ed Woodward insists that the club hierarchy are fully supportive of the Norwegian manager and he also believes that Solskjaer is the man to take the Premier League club forward.

Woodward said (via Mirror): “We significantly strengthened the squad over the summer, with the addition of Cristiano Ronaldo, Raphael Varane, Jadon Sancho and Tom Heaton.

“These signings have demonstrated our continued ability to attract some of the world’s best footballers to Old Trafford, and our firm commitment to helping Ole deliver success on the pitch.

“While squad-building is a constant process, we are more confident than ever that we are on the right track.”

The Red Devils have failed to win three of their last four matches across all competitions and the Manchester United manager is in the firing line right now.

Solskjaer was heavily backed during the summer transfer window and he will be expected to deliver results this season.

However, the manager has not been able to get the best out of his new signings Raphael Varane and Jadon Sancho yet.

With the kind of talent at his disposal, the Norwegian will be expected to win a trophy with Manchester United and it will be interesting to see if he can turn things around in the coming weeks.

The manager’s decision to bench Cristiano Ronaldo during the draw against Everton also attracted a lot of criticism and the Portuguese international was upset with the decision as well.

Manchester United made an impressive start to the season but their form has dipped in recent weeks. There is no reason why they cannot go back to firing on all cylinders again.
