Fans called for McClaren to be sacked during Saturday's 3-1 defeat to Bournemouth.

And United managing director Lee Charnley and board members Graham Carr and Bob Moncur met in York yesterday to discuss his future.

But the message after the meeting was "business as usual".

However, the 54-year-old could yet be sacked ahead of the club's visit to the King Power Stadium, though he was today backed to keep United in the Premier League by Lee Bowyer.

The club has been linked with a number of out-of-work managers, including David Moyes and Rafa Benitez.

Harry Redknapp has also been mooted as a shorter-term appointment.
