Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been relieved of his duties as Manchester United manager pending formal confirmation. Ole made significant improvement with the squad after taking over as head coach in 2018, although he failed to win any significant trophies. Many of his inconsistencies as a coach began to emerge as more crucial players who performed at the top level came. It was evident from the outset of the season that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was far over his head, with poor results against any team in any event.
Earlier today, it was predicted that a poor result against Watford following the international break would signal the end of his term. Solskjaer approached the crowd after a 4-1 loss to apologize for the outcome, knowing that his destiny was likely set. The club’s board of directors held an emergency meeting to discuss the circumstances of Solskjaer’s departure. After five hours of deliberation, they decided to remove Ole of his managing responsibilities. Solskjaer will not be retained as Manchester United manager, according to Fabrizio Romano, who was the first to break the news. While other possibilities are being examined, interim manager Darren Fletcher is set to assume the post.
