A warning from Liverpool to Man Utd to take care of Brendan …

Solskjær’s team has now lost four of their last six Premier League matches and has only won three of their last ten matches in all tournaments.

The pressure is so great from fans, experts and the media that it only seems to be a matter of time before Solskjær is replaced at Old Trafford.

The newspaper adds that Rodgers, Antonio Conte, Zinedine Zidane and Erik ten Hag made up a four-man shortlist of managers that the club put together last month.

Conte has now come to Spurs, Zidane ‘would not be interested’, Ten Hag ‘did not want to discuss any hypothetical openings’, but the agent was ‘convinced they could get Rodgers out of Leicester’.

Meanwhile, former Man Utd defender Paul Parker wants to see Solskjær bring in a more experienced coach to work with him.

“He’s the head coach. In all the big teams that Manchester United have had, look at the assistants who sat next to Alex Ferguson.

“It did not bother him to have different people around him. He gained experience and that made his team better. Whoever came in made his team better, and that made him a better manager. “
