Manchester United have sacked their head coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer following their 4-1 defeat to Watford on Saturday.
A statement from the club reads: “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 take charge of United for their upcoming games – with an interim manager set to be appointed until the end of the season.- Soccer24 Zimbabwe
