Gary Neville’s prediction over the likelihood of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer getting sacked by Manchester United is set to frustrate fans who have been calling for his firing.
The Red Devils have won just two of their last seven games in all competitions, leading some United fans to question whether Solskjaer is the right man to lead the side.
Their latest poor result came on Saturday when Leicester City claimed a 4-2 win over United at the King Power Stadium.
The defeat saw United fall out of the top four of the Premier League table, with the pressure now ramping up on Solskjaer.
But former United captain Neville had a prediction that the fans calling for his head will not like when he was questioned about the state of the Red Devils.
The pundit believes that United will continue to back Solskjaer, insisting that summer signings Jadon Sancho, Raphael Varane and Cristiano Ronaldo are still settling in.
“The pressure will build on the manager, the pressure will build on the players. They won’t do anything with the manager,” Neville told Sky Sports.
“I think that ultimately the club are stable in that respect with what’s happened in the last 10 years. I think they recognise they’re going to go through these moments.

“They are integrating Sancho, Varane, Ronaldo – and I think they’ll see it through. But there is massive pressure, and it’s not coming by the way, it’s here.
“It was here before the international break and even more so today. And it’s not going to go away that.
“It should be there, it’s Manchester United and they spent a fortune, and they’ve got some of the best players in the world.”
United have a challenging run of Premier League games coming up, which includes trips to Tottenham and Chelsea.
Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester City will also all visit Old Trafford by the end of November, with crucial Champions League games against Atalanta and Villarreal in that period.
