- Man United have made their worst start to a league campaign in 30 years under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer
- Solskjaer is now under pressure to quit his role, barely a year after succeeding Jose Mourinho
- It has proved costly for the Red Devils to sack managers in recent years
Premier League giants Man United will have to part with a whopping £7million should they decide to sack underfire Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Solskjaer has come under immense pressure at United following the club's poor run of results in the new season.
The Red Devils have picked just two wins in eight matches, with struggling Newcastle handing them a 1-0 defeat in their last league match.
The Manchester outfit now sit 12th on the standings with just nine points, an astonishing 15 points behind leaders, Liverpool.
The woeful performances have seen club fans turn their heat on Solskjaer, with a section of them demanding for the sacking of the tactician.
A defeat to Liverpool in United's next match could leave the club's top brass with no option but to hand the Norwegian marching orders.
But how much would it cost the Old Trafford dwellers to fire the baby-faced assassin?
In recent years, it has proven a little costly to axe managers, with Jose Mourinho and his backroom staff among the greatest beneficiaries.
Ed Woodward, United’s executive vice-chairman, announced record revenues of £627m in September but the figure included a £19.6m pay-off for Mourinho and his team following their departure in December 2018.
The club paid up David Moyes’ contract following his exit in 2014 and Solskjaer could now be in line to receive a £7m pay-off.
The tactician's wages are understood to be around £6m-a-year, and the Norwegian would receive one-year severance pay should he lose his job.
Legit.ng reported earlier that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer claims he prefers to be without a striker than have Belgium star Romelu Lukaku at Man United.
The Old Trafford dwellers offloaded the Belgium forward during the summer transfer window, with Inter Milan coughing out £74m, but the Norwegian insists Lukakau’s "head was not there".
