Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says Man Utd form "is part of football" in defiant message

Manchester United may have called an urgent meeting over the future of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, but the Norwegian boss was in defiant mood after their latest defeat.

The former Cardiff and Molde coach insisted that he and the club will continue working hard to get their season back on track, despite being 12 points from top.

Solskjaer also insisted that their "very bad run" and "bad situation" are a part of football – but many of his former supporters were not in agreement.

"It's a definite big, big challenge for everyone at the club," Solskjaer told Sky Sports after the embarrassing 4-1 defeat.

"The results are not good enough, we know that. Of course something is wrong. I feel for the fans. I feel the same as the fans. We are in a very bad run and bad situation. But that is part of football."

Adding when asked about his future: "I am working for and with the club. Of course we have a good communication and if the club are thinking of doing something that is a conversation between us."

And concluding when asked how low he is feeling: "Very."
