Man Utd legend Sir Alex Ferguson 'wants to give Ole Gunnar Solskjaer one last chance against Tottenham' after talks

SIR ALEX FERGUSON wants Manchester United to give Ole Gunnar Solskjaer another chance, according to reports.

Pressure is mounting on the Norwegian after Sunday's 5-0 horror show against Liverpool.

SunSport exclusively revealed, however, that following a board meeting yesterday – Solskjaer WILL remain in charge against Tottenham on Saturday.

The 48-year-old took training this morning, with clear the air talks planned with his glum players.

Fabrizio Romano adds that Sir Alex Ferguson was a key member of the United board that campaigned for Solskjaer to remain in the job.

The Scot, 79, was spotted stony faced in the crowd during Sunday's match, wearing a look of disbelief.

But the legendary former manager has stuck by his old striker.

United have started making contingency plans, however, having drawn up a four-name shortlist to potentially replace Solskjaer.


Chief among them is former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte.

And Romano adds that the Italian would accept the job at Old Trafford if offered it.

Ex-Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane also features – alongside Leicester gaffer Brendan Rodgers and Ajax's Erik ten Hag.

Solskjaer, 48, admitted on Sunday that his side had hit 'rock bottom'.

But he refused to give up on his project.

Gary Neville slammed the Red Devils for being 'too easy' to play against, while Rio Ferdinand believes that they have 'lost their identity'.

Defender Luke Shaw claimed that the result 'had been coming'.

And David de Gea blasted his side for 'conceding s*** goals' and 'playing like kids'.
