ManU Sacks Ole Gunnar After The Humbling Watford Defeat Proved To Be The Final Straw
Manchester United stated on Sunday morning that manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been fired. After Saturday’s 4-1 loss at Watford, Solskjaer was fired after a disastrous run of results that saw the 48-year-old Norwegian lose seven of his last 13 games in charge.
Michael Carrick, United’s first-team coach, has been named interim manager while the club searches for a permanent replacement.
Mauricio Pochettino, Brendan Rodgers, Zinedine Zidane, and Erik ten Hag have all been mentioned as possible successors.
‘Manchester United announces that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has stepped down as manager,’ the club said in a statement. Ole will always be a Manchester United legend, and we regret having to make this difficult decision. While the last few weeks have been discouraging, they should not overshadow the three years of work he has put in to re-establish 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 for his story as a player, but as a great man and a manager who gave us many great moments. He will forever be welcome back at Old Trafford as part of the Manchester United family.
