Moyes delivers damning message to under-fire Man Utd boss Solskjaer

David Moyes has hinted that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is right to be under pressure at Manchester United for not winning enough games.

Solskjaer is under intense pressure at Old Trafford after United fell to a 2-1 defeat against Istanbul Basaksehir earlier this week.

Up until that point, the Champions League had been Solskjaer’s saving grace, earning impressive wins over PSG and RB Leipzig.

But in the Premier League, the Red Devils have already lost three times, all of which have come at home.

Starsport revealed that the Norwegian could lose his job, if United fail to beat Everton at Goodison Park on Saturday.

That’s the same ground that Moyes managed his final United game, losing 2-0 to his former club in 2014.

And Moyes, who has had to fight against similar criticism at West Ham, has said that while teams are struggling to get results, managers will be under pressure.

"All managers are under pressure," Moyes told reporters this week.

"At Manchester United there is more pressure than any club in the world. It comes with the job.

“We know what happens if you don't win enough games."

United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward is said to be reluctant to sack Solskjaer, due to his emotional attachment to the club.

However, defeat to Carlo Ancelotti’s side could see them drop to 17th and force Woodward to pull the trigger, with Maurcio Pochettino waiting in the wings.

Pochettino has already been sounded out about taking the post at Old Trafford – and it is understood he is keen to take on the role.

It is understood Pochettino has told United he is not prepared to wait forever and that he is also interested in taking charge of Paris Saint Germain should the French champions decide to sack Thomas Tuchel.
