Manchester United could sack their manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer if they lose to Cardiff in their next game, according to former Arsenal midfielder Paul Merson. The Norwegian replaced Jose Mourinho in 2018 and even though he started off very well when he was in charge of the club on an interim basis, things have deteriorated ever since he became the permanent manager.
As a result, Merson thinks that should Ole fail to win against Cardiff, anything could happen as the Norwegian’s contract may not have a hefty termination clause like Mourinho’s did.
“Nothing surprises me in football, if they lost to Cardiff who knows what would happen,” he said.”I wouldn’t know. I don’t see Solskjaer being on a Mourinho contract, where you’d have to pay £15m to get him out of it – I think there’ll be serious meetings if they don’t win this game.
