Manchester United board have decided to relieve Ole Gunnar Solskjaer from his managerial role at the club.
The news of his sack was confirmed on Manchester United's website on Sunday, November 21st, 2021. The decision to sack Ole was triggered by the disgraceful performance in the game against Watford at Vicarage Road on Saturday, November 2021.
The club has released a statement appreciating the efforts that the Norwegian put in the club for the past three years since he took over.
Ole will always be a legend at Manchester United and it is with regret that we have reached this difficult decision. While the past 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 for 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 be welcome back to Old Trafford at the Manchester United family.
The 48-year-old was appointed in the summer of 2018 after the club sacked Jose Mourinho. Manchester United have failed to win a trophy under the Norwegian, the best the Red Devils have gotten is a Champions League place since he took over.
