Things aren’t looking too good for Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer right now and following some dreadful performances from the Red Devils this season, many are calling for him to be sacked.
The leading UK bookmakers have unanimously slashed the odds on Red Devils manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer becoming the first Premier League managerial casualty of the 2020/21 campaign after his side slipped to a humiliating defeat to Tottenham Hotspur last time out.
United have collected just three points from their three Premier League outings and the 6-1 thumping by Spurs was the last straw for many. It’s likely that the club board will be seeing this as a warning sign that silverware won’t be forthcoming this season and the likelihood is that they will end what many have seen as an experiment before long.
The bookmakers reacted immediately following the weekend embarrassment and the odds on Solskjaer becoming the first managerial casualty in the top-flight this season have been decisively slashed, some bookies going as low as Evens that he finds himself on the scrap-heap before long.
Punters have also been quick to pile onto the Red Devils manager and as such the likelihood is that these odds will shorten even further before United next kick a ball in anger following the international break.
There has been some relief for Fulham boss Scott Parker, the former market favourite now down to a general 3/1 in the Sack Race betting market, ahead of Sean Dyche at 6/1 and Slaven Bilic at a general 11/1.
