Gunnar Solskjaer believes his players should relish the pressure they are under after poor form.
United are back in action against Watford on Saturday, before facing Chelsea and Arsenal in their next two league games, and Solskjaer does not want his time to be hidden from the current situation.
“We know bad form puts pressure on us, but that pressure should be a joy,” he said.
“It should be something that makes us a better team and allows each player to perform at their best.”
Solskjaer was asked if he feels safe in his job at the moment, and he insisted the club are fully united despite the recent turmoil.
“Yes. The players, the staff, myself and the club, we are all working towards one goal and that is for this team to improve and achieve better results,” said Solskjaer.
“The fans always support the team and the club. They went through this period and this time supported the reconstruction.
“You know when you lose a game you’re always disappointed and under pressure. We communicated well, openly and honestly.
“There is a game that matters now, but there is also what happens after. We are all rested, this week has been very good in training and we are ready for tomorrow.
