Man United have parted ways with the Norwegian tactician

Manchester United sack manager Ole Gunner Solskjear following the club’s bitter defeat at watford in the Premier League.

The Norwegian job was on the line going into the fixture, following a poor run of performances.

United had only picked up four points in their past six Premier League games. And the defeat at Vicarage Road escalated his situation.

Quickly after the game, reports emerged the club’s board went into an emergency meeting to discuss the possibility of sacking the United legend.

Upon lengthy conversation, the board finally agreed to terminate the Norwegian contract at Old Trafford.

A club statement from the club read:

“Manchester United announces that Ole Gunner Solskjear has left his role as manager.

“Ole will always be a legend at Manchester United and it is with great regret that we have reached this difficult decision.

“While the past few weeks has been disappointing, they should not obscure all the works he has done over the past three years to rebuild the foundations for long-term success.

“Ole leaves with our sincerest thanks for his tireless efforts as manager and our very best wishes for the future. His place in the club’s history will always be secure, not just his story as a player, but as a great man and a manger who gave us many great moments.

“He will forever be welcome back to Old Trafford as part of the Manchester United family.

“Micheal Carrick will now take charge of the team for forthcoming games, while the club looks to appoint an interim manager to the end of the season.”

Solskjear managed 168 games at Man United, achieving 92 wins, 35 draws and 41 defeat.
