Manchester United have sacked manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, a day after the club slipped to a humiliating defeat at Watford in the Premier League. The club made the announcement in an official statement on Sunday. United also announced that Michael Carrick, who was part of Solskjaer’s coaching staff, will take charge of the team before an interim manager is appointed by the club. “Manchester United announces that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has left his role as manager,” United’s statement read. “Ole will always be a legend at Manchester United and it is with regret that we have reached this difficult decision,” the club added.

“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.”
