Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been sacked as Manchester United boss after Saturday’s 4-1 defeat to Watford at Vicarage Road.
The Norwegian was sacked ahead of Sunday’s Premier League clash between Chelsea and Manchester United at Stamford Bridge.
Manchester United made the decision to sack Solskjaer after they lost 5 games out of their last 7 Premier League games.
Statement from Manchester United: “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.”
