Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reveals why he's not concerned about being sacked

Following a poor start to the season, Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed that he is not bothered about facing the sack.

Premier League has witnessed some high profile sacking in recent weeks with Mauricio Pochettinho, Unai Emery, and Quique Sanchez Flores being shown the door at Spurs, Arsenal, and Watford respectively. 

United are ninth in the league, 22 points behind leaders Liverpool, eight off the final Champions League qualifying place, and just six points above the relegation zone in their worst start in 31 years.

United face Jose Mourinho's Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City within a week but Solskjaer is not bothered about facing the sack, "No it doesn't make me more concerned.

"I'm just focusing on my job and that's doing as well as I can, looking forward to the next game, but also look long term, plan things with board.

"It's that time of year, it's never nice to see your colleagues lose your jobs, three in a very short space of time.

Game of margins

"Some of them, you can talk about this VAR all day long, I don't know what the reasons are behind the sackings at different clubs, but one result - Southampton-Watford - with the handball, and we're talking about something completely different.

"It's a game of margins. Sometimes you have luck, sometimes you don't. But it doesn't make me any more concerned.

"We've had too many draws for my liking, defeats of course, but draws we should have turned into wins, and football is a results business, of course.

"We're not happy, we know we can do better and are working hard to get those results on the board. The work that is going on here is always geared on us improving but we're not getting all the results that we've deserved."
