Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward says asserts non-football folks take major football decisions in the Old Trafford club have beena myth andan insult.
United are 12th in the Premier League and 15 points behind leaders Liverpool, who they play on Sunday (16:30 BST).
Its been maintained Woodward has sway on Solskjaers team, and Jose Mourinhos ahead of him.
However, Woodward says decisions on players arenot made with senior management.
Amid United struggles, special attention has been paid for their failure after it became Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez would be leaving for Inter Milan, to sign a striker.
The club decided against making a move at that time although Its understood Juventus front-man Mario Mandzukic was considered.
The conclusion seems to have backfired as United have struggled for goals – scoring five times in their previous seven league games.
Woodward, talking in the yearly all-staff meeting of the club, says some of those allegations which have been made lately are mistaken.
Theres a myth that we have non-football individuals making football decisions, he explained. I think thats insulting to the amazing men and women who work on the football side in this club.
He added:Weve expanded our recruitment department in the last several years and we think this now runs in an efficient and productive way.
Player recommendations and decisions are worked by this section and from the first-team manager and his staff, not from senior management
While the clubs owners, the Glazer family , were the topic of supporter discontent throughout the defeat at Newcastle on 6 October, woodward has come under fire lately.
It is being worried capital will be accessible should potential signings emerge January, which is regarded as a important month in making sure that a disappointing season doesnt profession out of control, by some.
Club resources are aware the situation is far below expectations.
That is Uniteds worst start to a league campaign in 30 decades, together with no more than 1 target in any game since the victory over Chelsea and three wins out of 11 matches in all competitions.
Nevertheless any mid-season recruiting is going to be carried out with a perspective. Signing players for its sake is being ruled out.
Uniteds three summer signings – Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Harry Maguire and Daniel James – all have made a positive effect.
The changes we found over the summer have led to a very young squad, said Woodward.
But its also a squad, together with all the gamers and the culture, that offers a base camp to us to build and develop from as we start our new trip.
Solskjaer faced with the prospect of operating with a slimmed down squad or enrolling players below the amount he desired this summer and has power of veto over any registering, went for the alternative.
This was accepted by senior United figures although everybody, from the manager down, understood danger was attracted by it , particularly when injuries struck at the way they have.
Now, Solskjaer is under pressure to turn the present situation around.
Well-placed sources are determined the 46-year-old retains the aid of the Glazer family along with Woodward.
Woodward said last month the club required to be patient and it is understood that the situation would not be changed by a significant defeat at home to Liverpool on Sunday.
The center part of last year, following Oles coming, feels relevant to what we would like to accomplish and where we wish to be, said Woodward.
We watched a team playing quickly, fluid football, using a transparent representation of the style and philosophy the supervisor needs.
Ole has also instilled the discipline into an environment where we might have lacked it in the past few decades. Hes building a squad which respects the clubs foundation, in which players work hard and honor their team-mates. No-one is bigger than the club.
