Former Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Manchester United announces the sack of the club manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

United were humiliated 4-1 to Watford at Vicarage Road on Saturday.

A statement by the club’s Communications Department on Sunday says Ole 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,” it states.

The club thanks Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for his tireless efforts as manager and wishes him the best 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 statement notes.

It adds that 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.
