Manchester United: why are they reluctant to sack Ole Gunnar Solskjær?

Manchester United have given Solskjaer enough time and resources. Why are they reluctant to sack him despite poor results?

If Manchester United sack manager Ole Gunnar Solskjær today, they would be justified after giving him enough resources and enough time to make things right at the club but unfortunately he hasn't and may never.

Solskjær replaced José Mourinho on an interim basis in December 2018 and quickly reassured the United faithfuls of a better time with improved results. He was made permanent after just 14 games, a decision that has been proven to be a hasty one by time and circumstances.

Three years down the line, an investment of about £450m in signings and he has nothing to show for it. His best season as manager was last season when he finished second in the league and was runners up in the UEFA Europa League.

United's result in the last weeks have been very alarming and has put Solskjaer under real pressure and if it's anything to go by he should have been sacked but somehow he's still on the job and may not be sacked anytime soon even after the weekend's loss to Manchester United at Old Trafford.
