Solskjaer still odds on to get United job full time

Ole Gunnar get it?

Manchester United may have one foot out of the Champions League but our traders still reckon Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will get the manager’s job full-time.

The Red Devils lost 2-0 to Paris-Saint Germain last night but are Evens to grab a top-four place in the Premier League.

Solskjaer has guided his charges to 10 wins out of 12 since his arrival in December 2018 and is the 1/3 favourite to be United manager on opening day of next season.

His nearest challengers to the throne seem to be Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino at 9/2 and former Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane at 9/1.

“Solskjaer’s first defeat last night hasn’t done his long-term prospects too much harm in our eyes. We still make him the heavy favourite to be in the dugout for their first Premier League game of the 2019/20 season,” said Coral’s Harry Aitkenhead.

A key consideration for the Old Trafford will be whether Solskjaer does secure Champions League football for next season.

Aitkenhead added: “If he can steer United into the top four he will have done a brilliant job and we now make them shorter odds than both Chelsea and Arsenal to do just that.

They’re evens now to secure a Champions League spot and it’s a remarkable turnaround from the 10/1 they were when he took over from Jose Mourinho.” 

Man United’s next Premier League game is a week on Sunday when they host fierce rivals Liverpool.

Solskjaer could make a huge step to securing the job on a permanent basis with a win at 19/10.
