Ole Gunnar Solskjaer now the FAVORITE to be fired after his Manchester United party lost to Burnley while leading the Premier League pocket race
- Manchester United lost 2-0 to Burnley on Old Trafford on Wednesday evening
- It means that they have now lost three of their last four games in the Premier League
- The bookmakers now have Ole Gunnar made Solskjaer's favorite to be fired
Solskjaer's side went behind Chris Wood's head for Jay Rodriguez doubled the Clarets' lead with a phenomenal strike to give Burnley a 2-0 win over United in Old Trafford.
And now the bookmakers have dropped the chances that the Norwegian will be the next manager fired in the Premier League.
VOLGE NDE MANAGER TO BE SHIPPED
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer – 8/11 [1 9459013]
Eddie Howe – 7/4
Dean Smith – 3/1
No manager to leave – 8/1
Daniel Farke – 7/1
The odds have fallen to just 8/11 with William Hill for Solskjaer to become the next man to lose his job.
The longest chances are only 2/1 with that of Betfair and Paddy Power.
It means that Solskjaer has overtaken Eddie Howe as the favorite to be rejected, with the Bournemouth manager as long as 4/1 with SkyBet to leave the Vitality Stadium.
Right behind them is Dean Smith, with the Aston Villa manager 8/1 who is then fired in the Premier League.
Solskjaer has been at a difficult point with United, losing to Liverpool at Anfield on the weekend for the humiliation of Wednesday night.
They have now lost three of their last four Premier League games, putting him in a difficult position and finishing in the top four now looks unlikely.
After the game, the 46-year-old admitted that the performance & # 39; not good enough & # 39; used to be.
& # 39; The players give everything, they have done absolutely fantastic this season, but they know it wasn't good enough tonight & he said.
& # 39; The boys looked mentally tired towards the end, we didn't find that creativity.
& # 39; We cannot feel sorry for ourselves. When you are at Man Utd, you are privileged because you play for the best club in the world.
& # 39; Sometimes you go through such periods and it is a test that I am sure they will get through. & # 39;
Gary Neville wonders why the Glazers didn't fire Ed Woodward because of his & # 39; UNFORGIVABLE & # 39; transfer record after the defeat of Manchester United against Liverpool … because he insists that club a & # 39; mess & # 39; remains until & # 39; best in class football operators & # 39; were brought in
After being fired from Barcelona, Ernesto Valverde focuses on a job in the Premier League … he was overlooked by Chelsea in 2016, but will now not be admirers
- Ernesto Valverde was shot by Barcelona this week despite being top of the La Liga
- He will now be on the market for a Premier League job and will not be short of offers
- Valverde is unlikely to find a job between now and the end of the season, although
- the Spaniard in June is probably England.
Ernesto Valverde will be on the market for a job in the Premier League next summer after being fired by Barcelona and a double winner of La Liga who speaks English fluently, it is unlikely that he will be short
The 55-year-old only became the second coach in La Liga's history who was fired on Monday while standing at the top of the table. He won 97 of his 145 games, losing only 16. He is unlikely to take on a job between now and the end of the season, but his favorite destination in June is probably England.
Sportsmail understands that Valverde was considered by several English clubs before moving to Barcelona.
Michael Emenalo even wanted him in Chelsea in 2016 and advised Roman Abramovich that there were few better football managers in Europe. The owner of Chelsea wanted a bigger name and he was overlooked by Antonio Conte.
Valverde was in tears during the farewell on Tuesday when players who had taken social media to wish him goodbye said goodbye.
Gerard Pique had previously tweeted: & # 39; It was an honor to work for you and I hope everything goes well for you. It's always a pleasure to work with people like you in life. A hug, boss. & # 39;
And Lionel Messi added: & # 39; I am sure you will do well wherever you go because you are a great professional and a great person. & # 39;
Little far moving Barcelona coaches leave for this acclaim and the answers contribute to a feeling in Spain that Valverde's reputation has not been affected by his two and a half years in the Nou camp.
Valverde won three competitions in Greece and brought Espanyol to the UEFA Cup final before starting the biggest job of his career at Athletic Bilbao. When he coached them to a Spanish Super Cup success over Barcelona in 2015, it helped him confirm as a potential Barca manager.
Valverde expected the bag this week after the noise around the club that he could be replaced grew to grow after the Barcelona exit from the Spanish Super Cup.
Barcelona had dominated the match against Atletico Madrid in Saudi Arabia and had risen 2-1, but was denied several possible goals due to VAR decisions and then awarded twice late.
It is understood that the coach thought he would be fired at the end of last season after a defeat by Liverpool in the Champions League.
There were many voices in Barca's boardroom making a change at the time, and it was President Josep Bartomeu who insisted that he stay.
The defeat by Liverpool was never forgotten and continues to be undone. Barcelona had risen 3-0 in the first leg when Ousmane Dembele missed a chance to make it 4-0 at the last minute.
The Liverpool comeback in the second leg denied Barcelona a shot in the treble that the club may have won with Tottenham in the final in Madrid.
Because the Barcelona season fell apart, they were defeated by Valencia in the Copa del Rey final.
Ernesto Valverde is SACKED by Barcelona, despite the La Liga summit, while Spanish giants queue Setien to replace him after being rejected by club legend Xavi
The shock decision comes in the aftermath of the last Spanish Super Cup semi-final defeat of Atletico Madrid in which Barca threw a late lead to lose 3-2.
That result accelerated a move for club legend Xavi to replace Valverde, but after their former midfielder was turned down to return to the Nou Camp, they are now ready to appoint Setien, awaiting a possible move for Mauricio Pochettino.
