Manchester United has reportedly called for an emergency board meeting following the side’s embarrassing 4-1 defeat away to Watford.

It comes as the biggest sign yet that Solskjaer could be relieved off his duties at the United manager. It is reported that the Glazer family have called for an urgent gathering to determine the direction of the club. Also, as part of the agenda, the family is to discuss whether Solskjaer should remain in charge after the latest unexpected setbacks.

It is also claimed that United and the Glazers are now stepping up their interest in the Legend, Zinedine Zidane as they see the Frenchman as the obvious replacement for Solskjaer should he be axed.

With United now turning to Zidane, it was previously understood that the Frenchman had no desire to take the reins at Old Trafford during mid-season. Although, it is rumored he is set to be greeted with a charm offensive as United looks to bring him in.

In further news, Solskjaer has already said his goodbyes to the players after the brutal defeat with the inevitable axing now on the horizon. The Manchester Evening News even claims that people in the United camp were in tears following the end result at Vicarage Road and that the United players also believe it’s time for the head coach to go.

Speaking immediately after the defeat to Watford, Solskjaer refused to be drawn on questions regarding his immediate future. However, he said, “I’m working for and with the club. I’ve done that for 18 years. We’ve got good communication and if the club were thinking about doing something, then that is between me and the club”.

“The results are not good enough. We know that. We’ve gone 30 games unbeaten away from home and now we’ve lost two on the bounce and conceded four goals in both of them. So of course, something’s wrong”.

“We know we are in a very bad run and a bad situation. But that’s football and I know they’ll support whoever is on the pitch every day. And, sometimes, you’ve got to say sorry”.
