Carrick in Temporary Charge of Manchester United After Solskjaer Sack

The turbulent rein of Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer ended on Sunday after the club announced a mutual parting of ways after three seasons.

The last straw was the 4-1 spanking by Watford in the English Premier League on Saturday.

The club hierarchy went into a meeting after the shock loss and the verdict was obvious.

Manchester United confirmed the departure of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer following their 4-1 defeat to Watford on Saturday. The Red Devils were played off the pitch at Vicarage Road. And the 48-year-old has now lost his job in the aftermath. 

Manchester United are currently on a run of seven defeats from their last 13 matches across all competitions, with the loss to Watford on Saturday a new low.

The Red Devils lost 4-1 at Vicarage Road, with the performance of Donny van de Beek the sole shining light.

And, in a statement, United have now confirmed the departure of Solskjaer – wishing him well for the future and insisting he will always be a club legend.

“Manchester United announces that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has left his role as Manager,” it said. 

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

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

“While the past few weeks have been disappointing, they should not obscure all the work 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 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.

“Michael 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.”
