Manchester United will allow Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to continue as manager, as the board could not reach a unanimous decision to replace him with Antonio Conte, ESPN reports.

However, Solskjaer has been told in clear terms that his job is very much under threat.

On Monday, the 48-year-old met with executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward and managing director Richard Arnold, 24 hours after the humiliating 5-0 defeat to Liverpool at Old Trafford.

But the day ended with Solskjaer still on the job.

However, his fate is almost certain to be sealed during the forthcoming international break, except he can oversee positive results against Tottenham, Atalanta and Manchester City.

The Norwegian will remain in charge for Saturday’s trip to Tottenham, but he has been given no guarantees beyond that.

Solskjaer signed a three-year contract in the summer, but after winning three of their first four games, United have lost five of their last nine and conceded nine goals in their last two Premier League games.
