Manchester United sack manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Manchester United announced that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has left his role as manager.

The decision comes after Manchester United suffered a 1-4 defeat at the hands of Watford in the Premier League on November 20. “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,” said United in an official statement.

“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,” it added.

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. Manchester United is currently at the seventh position in the Premier League standings with 17 points from 12 games.
