Under-pressure Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer revealed he has spoken to the club’s board but has not sought any assurances about his future.

Solskjaer’s future has been the subject of widespread speculation following United’s lean recent run, capped by Sunday’s 5-0 home thrashing at the hands of rivals Liverpool.

Senior United officials were said to have held a Monday meeting following the Liverpool loss, with executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward joined by managing director Richard Arnold and co-chairman Joel Glazer.

“I’ve had communication with the board and I don’t expect them to come and give me assurances,” Solskjaer said. “When you have a performance and a spell like we’ve had, that’s not what I call about and say.

“My job is to put things right and that’s what I’m trying to do. I’m not here to ask for assurances.”

United, who play Tottenham in the Premier League on Saturday, have only managed one point from their past four league matches and have slipped to seventh, eight points behind leaders Chelsea.

“It’s been a very difficult week. I’ve not had a problem sleeping because when you go to bed at night if you’ve done all your work then you don’t have much thinking there,” Solskjaer said.

“You need time to have your decision-making and you need to do that when you’re staying awake. I’ve slept okay but It’s been a hard week in that respect.”
