I lost my job yesterday! – Solskjaer mocks sack rumours


Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, would not be drawn on his side’s title chances after their dramatic late win at West Ham, joking he had “lost his job yesterday” after their midweek disappointment in Europe.

Solskjaer went into the game on Sunday under a bit of pressure, after a disappointing 2-1 defeat to Young Boys in the Champions League.

But the Red Devils bounced back with a drama-filled 2-1 victory to stay level on points with Chelsea and Liverpool at the top of Premier League.

Solskjaer, though, is remaining level-headed as he reminded reporters that some people were questioning his future a few days ago.

“You’re not gonna get me on that one now,” he replied when asked about his side’s title prospects. “It’s five games into the season. I was probably down and out and lost my job yesterday. That’s the way it is at Man United.

“We deserved three points. It’s a hard place to come, here. Hopefully these points can make a difference. Let’s see [about the title] when we get towards April and May.”
