Solskjaer price cut in Premier League Sack Race after Rochdale performance

Published

on

The pressure is really starting to build on Manchester Utd boss Ole Gunnar Solksjaer after his side were taken to penalties in their Carabao Cup tie with Rochdale last night, with bookmakers taking plenty of bets on the Norwegian to be the next manager to be sacked.

Rochdale, languishing in League Two had little to lose, but an equalising goal in the 76th minute by Luke Matheson created a collective moan amongst the 58,314 home crowd, and a nerve jangling final 20 minutes.

United triumphed in the penalty shootout, but it was a result which did little to impress pundits and fans, and did little to inspire confidence or lift the air of doom and gloom around the Old Trafford club.

Whataretheodds.co.uk spokesman Spencer James –

“Its clear there are big problems at Manchester Utd and the pressure is really starting to build on Solkjaer – he really needs a good run of results to turn things around and install some confidence around the club. The Norwegian was as big a price as 12/1 at the start of September to be the next manager to go but that price is now into 4/1. Punters are pretty shrewd animals – the wolf is definitely at the Old Trafford door”

A disappointing 2-0 Premier League defeat to West Ham last time around would have been a body blow to the club, who now find themselves in eighth place in the Premier League, while things do not get any easier as Arsenal arrive at Old Trafford on Monday 30th September.

Another defeat would see that price on Solkjaer shorten once again.
