Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward says claims non-football people 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, that they play on Sunday (16:30 BST).
Its been maintained Woodward has sway on Solskjaers team, and Jose Mourinhos ahead of him.
But Woodward says conclusions on players arenot created by senior management.
Amid United struggles, special attention was paid for their failure after it became Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku would be leaving for Inter Milan, to sign a striker.
The club decided against making a go although Its known Juventus front-man Mario Mandzukic was believed.
The decision appears to have backfired as United have struggled for goals – scoring only five times in their past seven league matches.
Woodward, talking in the yearly all-staff assembly of the club, says a number of those allegations that have been made lately are incorrect.
There is a myth that weve got non-football people making football decisions, he explained. I feel that is insulting to the fantastic men and women working on the side in this club.
He added:Weve expanded our recruiting department in the past few decades and we believe this now runs in an efficient and productive way.
Player recommendations and decisions are worked by this section and by the first-team supervisor and his team, not from senior administration .
Woodward has come under fire although the clubs owners, the Glazer familymembers, were the topic of supporter discontent during the defeat on 6 October.
But it is being stressed capital will be accessible should possible signings emerge January, and it is viewed as a vital month in ensuring that a disappointing season doesnt profession from control by some.
Club resources know the present situation is way below expectations.
That is Uniteds worst start to a league campaign in 30 years, with three wins from 11 games in all competitions and no longer than 1 goal on the opening day of this campaign in any game since the 4-0 victory over Chelsea.
Yet any mid-season recruiting will be achieved with a long-term perspective. Signing players for its interest is being ruled out.
Uniteds three summer signings – Aaron Wan-Bissaka Harry Maguire and Daniel James – all have made a positive effect.
The modifications we found over the summer have resulted in a very young group, said Woodward.
But its also a squad, together with all the gamers and the civilization, that offers a base camp for us to develop and grow out of as we begin our new journey.
Solskjaer has power of veto over any enrolling and confronted with the possibility of either operating with a slimmed squad or enrolling players under the level he wanted this summer, went to the choice.
This was accepted by senior United figures although everybody, from the director down, knew inherent risk was attracted by it , particularly if injuries struck that they have.
Solskjaer is under pressure to turn the present situation .
Well-placed resources are adamant the 46-year-old retains the aid of the Glazer family as well as Woodward.
Woodward said last month the club required to be patient and its understood that the circumstance would not be changed by even a heavy defeat at home to Liverpool on Sunday.
The middle section of last season, after Oles coming, feels most relevant to what we would like to accomplish and where we would like to be, said Woodward.
We watched a team playing quickly, fluid soccer, with a transparent representation of the design and philosophy the supervisor needs.
Ole has also instilled the discipline into an environment where we might have lacked it in the past couple of decades. Hes building a squad which respects the foundation, in which players admire their team-mates and work hard of the club. No-one is larger than the heart.
