Former Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino and RB Leipzig coach Julian Nagelsmann are among the names in the frame if Solskjaer cannot turn things around but he believes he is still the right man for the job at Old Trafford.

“Yeah, why shouldn’t I be?” Solskjaer told a news conference on Friday. “If I don’t trust my beliefs and values and staff’s quality and players’ quality, who else should?

“I don’t look at one or two results and fall like a house of cards. It’s a setback, definitely. There’s been too much made of not scoring against Arsenal and Chelsea. There was nothing in those games and it’s not long ago we were the best thing since sliced bread against RB Leipzig and PSG.

“You have to have that belief. The club have been very positive and shown me their character and strong leadership.”
