Official: Solskjaer is sacked by Manchester United


Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is no longer the head coach at Manchester United, with the Red Devils sacking the Norwegian on Sunday morning, following Saturday's 4-1 Premier League loss at Watford.

Michael Carrick has been appointed as the caretaker coach, while the search for the next permanent manager begins.

The club communicated the decision via a statement, expressing regret at having to move on from the club legend.

"Manchester United announces that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has left his role as manager," the statement began.

"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."

Solskjaer's three years in charge at Manchester United

Appointed in December of 2018, initially as caretaker, Solskjaer went on to coach 168 games at the club, winning 92, drawing 35 and losing 41.

During his tenure, Solskjaer didn't manage to win any trophies, losing the 2020/21 Europa League final to Villarreal on penalties.

With the club spending big in the summer of 2021, the team was expected to do better and he has been sacked after winning just one of the last five games.
