Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's position at Manchester United is likely to be saved because of the club's inability to find an alternative option.
The Red Devils have come out of their difficult run of games with two shattering defeats to Liverpool and Manchester City, a scraped draw against Atalanta and a win over an uninspired Tottenham.
Three victories in their last 10 games is a damning run of form and a spell worse than the one that got Nuno Espirito Santo sacked after their encounter.
However, his job was lost because Antonio Conte was lined up to take over – in contrast, Old Trafford chiefs are struggling to muster a Plan B.
As per The Independent, there is currently no feeling that Solskjaer will be moved on, even though those above him believe a new direction is needed.
There has been murmured suggestions of bringing in former RB Leipzig manager Ralf Rangnick, who would be interested in the role on an interim basis.
However, Rangnick, currently at Russian club Lokomotiv Moscow, would demand some sort of hierarchy position after his spell in charge concludes.
Should United wait until a replacement is lined up? Let us know in the comments section.
Other than that, there are no top-class coaches who can come in at present.
After all, they didn't believe they would be in this position of need, with Solskjaer being handed a new three-year contract in the summer.
Ajax boss Erik ten Hag, who was mentioned in the conversation for the Newcastle job, has been linked to United too.
But there is a belief that he would not leave mid-season.
Ex-Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane is another name who's been heavily touted, and he is also not currently interested.
That leaves United in a worrying position where all their top rivals in the Premier League have highly-regarded managers, and they don't.
Sources close to the club feel even a basic level of coaching could transform their fortunes, which makes their predicament all the more frustrating.
