Manchester United Sack Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Name Michael Carrick As Interim Manager

Published

Manchester United has on Sunday, November 22 ended Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s three-year reign as manager at Old Trafford following a poor run of performances and results.

The English club broke the news about the 48-year-old Norwegian coach in a statement via all its social media pages on Sunday morning.

Saturday’s 4-1 embarrassment at the hands of struggling Watford was the final straw for the United board, who had stuck by Solskjaer in recent weeks despite humiliating home defeats to Liverpool and Manchester City.

The statement reads;

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 club also added that Michael Carrick, another ex-Manchester United player, will take charge until an interim manager is appointed.
