Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s mega-money payout emerges amid Man Utd sack fears

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will receive a whopping payout if Manchester United decide to axe the under-fire boss.

The Red Devils manager has found himself under serious pressure following United’s humiliating defeat to Liverpool on Sunday, the latest in a string of poor results.

Solskjaer’s side were hammered 5-0 by their bitter rivals at Old Trafford in the latest setback, with their last Premier League win coming against West Ham five games ago.

The club’s chiefs met with the owners this week to hold urgent talks and have reportedly given the heavily criticised Norwegian boss three games to save his United career.

Antonio Conte, Zinedine Zidane and Mauricio Pochettino have all been linked with succeeding Solskjaer and although the current United boss has reiterated his desire to remain in charge of the Red Devils, it wouldn’t be all doom and gloom if he were told to pack his bags.

It has now emerged just how much windfall Solskjaer would land should he fail to turn the tide and avoid the sack from his beloved United.

According to TheSun, Solskjaer stands to receive a hefty £7.5million severance package should United bosses give him the chop, a full year’s salary.

The figure makes the 48-year-old the fifth highest-paid manager in the Premier League payroll, behind only Pep Guardiola, Jurgen Klopp, Brendan Rodgers and Marcelo Bielsa.

Solskjaer faces a mammoth task if he is to salvage his United career with the tough games coming thick and fast.

Next up for United is a trip to Tottenham on Saturday before a midweek Champions League reunion with Italian side Atalanta, who Solskjaer’s side edged past 3-2 thanks to a late Cristiano Ronaldo winner last week.

The third in Solskjaer’s career-defining run is the mammoth task of facing fierce neighbours City in the Manchester derby on November 6.
