Solskjaer says he has backing of Man Utd board despite three defeats in four

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes Manchester United still trust him to succeed as manager and will hold their nerve amid the latest Old Trafford crisis.

United have lost three of their last four Premier League games after slumping to their first home defeat to Burnley in more than half a century on Wednesday night. It has put Solskjaer under renewed pressure going into Sunday's FA Cup round tie away to Tranmere Rovers.

However, the United boss insists he is planning for the long-haul and believes he will be given time to see the job through.

'All my conversations with the club have been positive,' said Solskjaer. 'We can't react to all the noise outside. There will be criticism and you've got to take it.

'You've got to be stronger mentally. I am, the club is, the staff are very strong mentally and we're sticking to what we believe in. I've got full faith.

'I think our fans know what we have started on and I've been trusted to do that job. That rebuild doesn't go one way all the time. We're doing great.

'The foundation has to be laid and the culture properly set and laid down, and this group is a good core of players that believe in what we're doing to carry us forward with signings and players coming back.

'You need to knock the house down, you don't just start with the roof. We've had some rainy days and wish that roof was on but we can't hide.' Follow us on Twitter and on Facebook
