Even as Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer made it clear that he does not feel that he is running out of time as the manager at the club, as soon as he was spotted at Manchester Airport flying to his home country with his family for a short break, social media started speculating whether he had been shown the door.
Despite there being no such indication either from the club or the man himself, some fans have had enough and are demanding him to be sacked with the hashtag #OleOut. This is because the Red Devils just have not been consistent enough this season.

Their talisman Cristiano Ronaldo has bailed him out of trouble a few times and helped him draw a few matches and win a few others but the team as a whole has lacked in some key areas which was once again exploited by Manchester City when they registered a 2-0 win in the derby game at Old Trafford.
Earlier, United had also received a 0-5 thrashing against Liverpool in the Premier League where they find themselves at the sixth position in the points table with 17 points from 11 matches.
However, when Ole was asked if he was beginning to feel like he was on borrowed time, this is what he said.
“No, I don’t start to feel like that. I have good communication all the time with the club that’s very upfront and honest about the situation,” he told Sky Sports.
“I’m sure when we come back the players will be fresh in their minds from internationals, and of course the demands on the players, on me, are going to be high,” he added.
“We’ve just got to get back to what we started to look like and what we were for a while. We’ve got the players to do that,” he further said.
“We’ve been through this a few times. Since the last game we played here [Liverpool defeat], it’s been a very difficult period and we’ve gone away from what we used to be. We need to be on the front foot more, I can’t look at myself and say this is the way I want Manchester United to play,” he stated.
Here are some of the reactions of the fans on Twitter:
