"Sometimes you laugh when you read stories about what I've said and stuff," Solskjaer said. "At least I know the sources everyone is talking about aren't sources, they are just made up, blatant lies."

"It doesn't make me more concerned, I'm just focusing on my job and doing as well as I can. I'm looking at the next game and also looking long term, planning things with the board.

"It is that time of year, it is never nice to see your colleagues lose their jobs. It's now three in a very short space of time. But it doesn't make me anymore concerned that it's December, no.

"I don't think whoever the manager or the opposition team is will change their motivation. They are motivated to do well for Manchester United because they know it is about proving it every time you step on to the pitch that you should be part of this long term."
