Manchester United squad remain behind Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and told the club’s board to stick with him, before their 2-1 win against Tottenham, according to the UK Times.

The 46-year-old has overseen over United’s worst start to a season since 1989, but beat Jose Mourinho’s Spurs ahead of this weekend’s Manchester Derby.

Mourinho took over from Mauricio Pochettino and the Argentine’s availability has only increased pressure on Solskjaer.

United’s executive vice-chairman, Ed Woodward, spoke to the squad when Mourinho was manager, to measure their happiness.

The players admitted they felt “mentally drained” and the Portuguese was sacked.

However, the reviews of Solskjaer were positive, with the squad begging senior club figures not to sack the Norwegian.
