ED WOODWARD is prepared to sack Ole Gunnar Solskjaer if the club’s poor run continues, according to reports.
Manchester United have lost two of their opening three Premier League games this season.
Executive vice-chairman Woodward will not hesitate to end Solskjaer’s reign if things do not improve, claim The Mirror.
The report goes on to add that former Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino is the firm favourite to replace him at Old Trafford.
Solskjaer has been in charge of United permanently since March 2018 after his encouraging spell as caretaker manager.

He guided the Red Devils to a top-four finish and they reached three semi-finals during the 2019-20 campaign.
But the 47-year-old’s future has been questioned following this season’s shaky start.
A 3-1 defeat to Crystal Palace on the opening day of the season was followed by a narrow 3-2 win over Brighton.
And he took full responsibility as they suffered a 6-1 defeat at the hands of Tottenham earlier this month.
Solskjaer, who is under contract with United until 2022, faces a make-or-break month.
United face Newcastle and Chelsea in the Premier League and will face Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League.
The under-fire manager will hope his new signings can bring back the glory days in Manchester.
He signed Edinson Cavani, Amad Diallo, Facundo Pellistri, Alex Telles and Donny van de Beek.
But agents rated Cavani and Van De Beek’s moves to United as the WORST transfers of the summer.
