BREAKING: Manchester United Sack Solskjaer After Watford Defeat

His removal followed a 4-1 loss of United to Watford on Saturday.

Manchester United on Sunday confirmed the sacking of club coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

His removal followed a 4-1 loss of United to Watford on Saturday.


First-team coach Michael Carrick has been named as caretaker coach while United seek a replacement to take charge until the end of the season, Daily Mail reports.

In a statement on Sunday, the club said, "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.

"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."
