Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sacked by Manchester united

Manchester United have terminated Ole Gunnar Solskjaer contract following bad results from previous matches despite their 7th position in EPL.

The club have released statement upon their partied ways, the statement read: “Manchester United announces that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has left his role as manager.

“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.”

According to details from their official website, Michael Carrick will take the charge for the temporary basis on forthcoming matches.

Solskjaer, 48, replaced Jose Mourinho on an interim basis in December 2018.

The Norwegian was then given the job full-time in March 2019 on a three-year contract and, in July, signed a new deal with the club until 2024.

Solskjaer was United’s fourth permanent manager since Sir Alex Ferguson retired in 2013 – and had lasted longer than more experienced predecessors David Moyes, Louis van Gaal and Mourinho.  

Solskjaer, who returned to the club as caretaker manager in December 2018 before being appointed on a permanent basis in March 2019, departs with the club seventh in the Premier League having only won three of their last 11 games in all competitions.

After the announcement, former team-mate Gary Neville thanked Solskjaer for what he did to the club despite the toughest moment at the club.

 Saturday’s defeat to Watford was Solskjaer’s 168th game in charge of the club. In total, he won 91 of them, drawing 37 and losing 40.
