Ed Woodward has publicly given his backing to head coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer amid ongoing speculation about the Norwegian’s long-term future at Manchester United.

After back-to-back defeats, United gaveSolskjaer some breathing room by defeating Everton 3-1 at the weekend.

Goal understands that whatever the result at Goodison Park, Solskjaer'sposition was not under threat despite United sitting 15th in the table going into that fixture and now Woodward, executive vice-chairman at Old Trafford, has come out and backed Solskjaer.

In a statement released alongside the club’s first-quarter financial results he said: “On the pitch, while there is still hard work ahead to achieve greater consistency, we remain absolutely committed to the positive path we are on under Ole as the team continues to develop.

"We miss playing in front of our fans and we are working hard together with our governing bodies and relevant authorities to ensure that fans can safely return as soon as possible.”

It is understood Pochettino would be keen to take the manager’s job at Old Trafford and has openly spoken about his desire to return to Premier League management. However, despite United’s poor start to the campaign,Goal understands the club are committed to the long-term rebuild plan under Solskjaerandwon't be pushed into making a reactionary decision.

United now sit 14th in the tablefollowing the win at Goodison Parkbefore the international break, and have won just three of their opening seven league fixtures.

They face West Brom at home in their next game before tricky away fixtures at Southampton and West Ham sandwiched between Champions League clashes against Istanbul Basaksehir, Paris Saint-Germain and RB Leipzig, where they will be hoping to get a step closer to qualification for the knockout rounds.
