Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has had crisis talks with some of Manchester United’s most experienced players in a bid to save his job.

The meeting took place Thursday morning at the club’s training ground between Solskjaer, captain Harry Maguire, Cristiano Ronaldo, Bruno Fernandes, Nemanja Matic, Luke Shaw and Victor Lindelof.

Solskjaer has scheduled the talks to get the player’s perspective on how to turn the club’s season around, while discussing tactics after going from four to three in the last few games, according to the Daily Mail.

United have won just three of their last 10 games in all competitions, a series that includes heavy losses to Liverpool, Manchester City and Leicester City, as well as a 1-0 loss to Aston Villa.

The Red Devils travel to struggling Watford on Saturday. They are in desperate need of a win after falling to sixth in the Premier League table and nine points behind leaders Chelsea.

Solskjaer is said to be trying everything he can to turn things around and want to kick off United’s season with wins over the Hornets and Spain’s Villarreal side in the Champions League next Tuesday.

The club’s board has so far resisted the temptation to sack the Norwegian boss, but their hands could be tied if the results continue to disappoint.

Leicester’s Brendan Rodgers is among the favorites to replace Solskjaer if he is sacked, but the former Liverpool and Celtic boss has played down the rumors.

“It doesn’t frustrate me personally, as I am focusing on the next game, which is Chelsea,” he told reporters at a press conference ahead of their Premier League game against Thomas Tuchel’s side. Saturday.

“But it’s frustrating for the fans and, I would say, for my players.

“If someone read what is going on, it can be unsettling. I am the manager of Leicester City, proud to be here and fully engaged. All the other noise around it is something we can’t control.

“I have immense respect for Khun Top and for protecting his father’s legacy. I feel like I’m in the right place, with the right people.
