Manchester United head coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer laughed off questions about his future after the Red Devils’ Champions League defeat to Istanbul Basakshehir. United lost to Instanbul with a 2-1 score on Wednesday night.

Anthony Martial scored for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side however it was not enough to collect any points. This was United’s second straight defeat, as they lost to Arsenal in the Premier League on Sunday.

And asked if he fears for his future after the loss, Solskjaer  said: “I decline to comment on this. Of course it’s early on and opinions are out there all the time.

“I’m employed by the club to do a job – and I do that to the best of my ability with our staff.”

He added: “Not good enough, the full game. We started off in the first 10 minutes…

“We had some space and looked like we could find some decent openings but then we left ourselves wide open for two goals and that was disappointing.

“Good response and good goal after their second [goal] and in the second-half you think we can push on and create chances but we just couldn’t break them down.

“You play a short corner and everyone forgets the players we’re playing against. Demba Ba gets in behind us, lack of communication and lack of decisions.

“You don’t usually see those goals at this level, you shouldn’t concede easy goals like this, you know how hard it is to create chances and create goals.

“And when you give easy and soft goals [away] like the ones here today it makes it a lot harder.”
