Manchester United stars reckon Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s future hinges on the next two games.

United have been briefing that Solskjaer’s position is safe and club bosses still believe he is the man to take them forward despite a poor run of results.

But some players view Wednesday’s Champions League clash with Atalanta and Sunday’s Premier League showdown with Liverpool as crucial to the future of the manager.

A source told SunSport: “Some of the players think Solskjaer has two games and that if United don’t win these two games, he could leave.

“They’re such important matches for the club in the Champions League and Premier League.

“It is a bad situation at the moment. It’s hard to see a big future for Solskjaer if United don’t win these games.”

The mood in the United dressing room is said to be similar to what it was back in March, following another beating by the Foxes.

In the wake of the FA Cup Sixth Round loss to Brendan Rodgers’ team, players expressed concern that Solskjaer was not the man who could lead the team to Premier League or Champions League glory.

But as has happened more than once in Solskjaer’s reign, the former United striker oversaw a series of good results just when he needed them

After that FA Cup defeat by Leicester, United won six of their next seven games including a 6-2 thumping of Roma in the first leg of the Europa League semi-final.

Although United went on to lose the final to Villarreal on penalties after a limp display, that run and finishing second in the Premier League was enough to earn Solskjaer a contract extension to 2024, with the option of another year.

Sacking a fourth manager since Sir Alex Ferguson’s departure in 2013, especially in mid-season, would be a bad look for United.
