UNDER-FIRE Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was seen for the first time since the shambolic defeat to Liverpool as he took training.
The 48-year-old Norwegian is believed to have held clear the air talks with the players as he clings to his job.
SunSport has exclusively revealed that the former Cardiff boss is set to stay in charge for now.
Old Trafford chiefs held talks over the past few days about his future, with the board mixed over when he goes or stays.
Solskjaer took training yesterday afternoon as he prepares his team for Tottenham this weekend.
He looked hard at work as he ordered his players around, and worked on tactics ahead of the crunch clash.
There is growing discontent among the players over his tactics and whether he can take the team forward.
United are already eight points off leaders Chelsea in the Premier League, and have struggled at times in the Champions League.
The club do NOT want to sack Solskjaer, who is a club legend and won numerous trophies at Old Trafford.

But the growing anger among supporters, and the worrying run of results has been too much to ignore.
This culminated with a woeful showing and deserved 5-0 defeat at home to great rivals Liverpool on Sunday.
SunSport also exclusively revealed that four men are already on the club’s shortlist to replace him, if he goes.
Antonio Conte is the hot favourite, with the ex-Chelsea boss admired by many in the Red Devils boardroom.
Former Liverpool and current Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers is also in the frame for the job.
Two others who they are looking at are Ajax chief Erik ten Hag and Real Madrid legend Zinedine Zidane.
