Man United name caretaker boss as regretful club statement confirms sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been sacked as Manchester United manager following their 4-1 defeat at Watford on Saturday, the Premier League club have announced.

United added that Michael Carrick will take charge of the forthcoming games, while the club looks to appoint an “interim manager” for the rest of the season.

A club statement read: “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.”
