After three years at the club, the head coach of Manchester United, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been sacked by the club’s hierarchy.
The club’s official website confirmed his sacking on Sunday, a day after Watford became the latest team to beat Manchester United, to make it five losses out of seven games.
The statement confirmed that former United midfielder, Michael Carrick will take charge on interim basis.
The statement read, “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.”
