Why does Manchester United keep forgiving the coach who is leaving them out of the next Champions League?

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer received backing from Manchester United to continue on the bench despite a further loss to Manchester City at Old Trafford.

Fifteen days ago, I received a momentary endorsement. Manchester United kept Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on the bench, despite a crushing 0-5 concession against Liverpool at Old Trafford, ahead of a decisive week for the 'Red Devils.

Despite the severe blow of the 0-5 defeat at Old Trafford, the first time in 60 years that they suffered this result at home, Manchester United, according to the English media, decided not to fire Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, but his continuity, was hanging by a thread.

However, the win against Tottenham seemed to accommodate a course, which had still been brewing since the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo at the club. Days later, and for the Champions League against Atalanta, he again generated the same doubts, in a timid draw in the last play that gave a little more life to the team, and coach.

Today's defeat, and even more so considering the way it happened, was once again a severe blow for a coach, who cannot straighten the boat, even with the huge players he has on his squad. Without going any further, if the tournament ended today, Cristiano Ronaldo and company would be left out of the next edition of the UEFA Champions League, something that is really inadmissible.
