Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is under pressure after the 2-1 defeat to Istanbul Basaksehir in the Champions League and Arsenal in the Premier League.
The Red Devils have been inconsistent this season in the Premier League with defeats to Crystal Palace and Tottenham as well as a drab draw with Chelsea.
That leaves Solskjaer's side way down in 15th after their first six matches.
But Robin van Persie insists sacking the United manager is not the answer to the problems the club currently have.
“I’m not a big fan of sacking coaches, I never liked that. In most cases, that’s not the solution to suddenly finding the same team playing great football again,” he told BT Sport.
“I’ve said it many times before about Solskjaer, give him time to really implement their ideas and in the end, I’m sitting here to give my opinion, not to judge his way of coaching or whatever.
“I hope they give him time, what’s in it for me for him to lose his job? I don’t want anyone to lose their job.”
The Red Devils return to action against Everton in the Premier League on Saturday knowing a win is vital if they want to finish in the top four.
After that, United face West Brom and Southampton in the Premier League as well as Istanbul Basaksehir in the Champions League game return leg at Old Trafford.
