Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said that he is under pressure at the moment, but that he has the backing of the club's administration. Since taking over the leadership midway through the 2018-19 season, he feels Manchester United has improved.
Manchester United's 4-2 thrashing at the hands of Leicester City on Saturday was their second Premier League defeat in three games. The loss has put them in sixth place in the Premier League table, adding to Solskjaer's burden. The Norwegian, on the other hand, believes United has improved in his two-and-a-half seasons at the club, and that the addition of world-class players has raised expectations at Old Trafford.
"We've come a long way over the years. Half-season results: sixth, third, and second. You can see how far we've come. We've brought in players who have boosted expectations, but we're in the same boat as the rest of the top teams. Of course, there is pressure on me, but we've been through this before," Solskjaer said in a press conference ahead of his side's Champions League match against Atalanta on Wednesday.
Manchester United will be keen to capture all three points against Atalanta after only winning one of their two Champions League group games so far this season.
