Despite defeat against Villarreal, Man Utd will keep Ole
Posted On May 28, 2021
There are signs that Man Utd will keep their coach, Ole Gunnar Solskjare at Old Trafford, even though they lost to Spanish club Villarreal in the UEFA Europa League.
There have been calls from Man Utd fans for the club to fire Ole, but the latest report revealed that the Red Devils hierarchy led by Ed Woodward would sign a new deal with Ole that could see him remain at Old Trafford for another three year.
Remember that Ole joined Man Utd in 2018 temporarily to replace Jose Mourinho. However, he got a firm contract in 2019 and has been their coach ever since.
As the 48-year-old had a year left on his current contract, the UK Telegraph reported that Man United have decided to extend his stay despite his inability to win silverware in his time.
Solskjaers led Man Utd team had the chance to break the duck, but lost to Villarreal 11-10 on penalties in Gdansk on Wednesday night.
It seems that Ole’s faith in the youngsters at Old Trafford is part of the reason they want to keep him at the club.
We will have to wait until the summer transfer window to see the new deal that will be handed over to Ole.
