It’s finally over. The moment that every Manchester United fan was eagerly waiting for since eternity, has arrived and head coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been sacked by the Red Devils’ management after a series of disappointing results in the Premier League. Although the news comes in a daw after their humiliating 4-1 away defeat against Watford, this was anything but a hurried decision as the Norwegian was given way too many chances by the management.

Manchester United made it official through a club statement that was posted on their website. The official 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”

“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,” the statement continued. 

It ended with the announcement that Michael Carrick, another club legend, has been made the interim coach and he will manage the team until the management is able to find a fitting replacement for the Norwegian.
