Manchester United is expected to be required to pay £7.5 million after sacking Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who is entitled to a full year’s wage despite his team’s poor form on the pitch.
After conducting an emergency board meeting following their devastating 4-1 defeat at Watford on Saturday, the Red Devils opted to sack the Norwegian.
United have lost five of their last seven Premier League games, with rivals Liverpool and Manchester City both easily dispatching the Old Trafford club in recent weeks.
To add insult to injury, according to The Sun, the club owes their former boss a full year’s wage, equating to £7.5 million, despite their poor performance on the pitch.
