Can Cristiano Ronaldo and other Manchester United players save Solskjaer's job?

In football matches, only the players are permitted to play but the coach of the team is always responsible for the technical and tactical aspects of the game. When the team fails to win, the manager is also said to have failed even though he is not allowed to play. Actually, the performance of the players influences the rating of the coach.

The scenario described above underlines the importance of Manchester United players in the fight by the team's manager to retain his position as the Manchester United manager. A convincing performance by the team could be all Ole Gunner Solskjaer needs to save his job. On the contrary, should the team perform poorly in the coming matches, the team manager may receive the exit order.

Manchester United players have shown great commitment in winning matches even when it seems like the team has lost everything. In the champions league match against Atalanta in the mid week, Manchester United went down 2:0 in the first half of the match. In the second half, the players put up superlative performance to ensure that they secure the 3 points. A task they performed diligently and it helped in reducing the pressure on the team's manager.

Although the team was 2:0 down against Atalanta in the first half, the players came into the second half determined to change the score line in their favour. A 53rd minute goal from Marcus Rashford set the tone for the home team, while Harry Maguire got the equaliser 22 minutes later. The 'come back' was completed by Cristiano Ronaldo on the 81 minute with a sensational header.

Although the Atalanta match was not the only time Manchester United won a match after conceding first. Cristiano Ronaldo and other Manchester United players can save Ole Gunner Solskjaer's job by putting in their best performance and win matches especially when playing against teams like Liverpool, Manchester City or Tottenham.
