Manchester United has fired manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. He led the team for three seasons.
However, after the team’s fifth loss in their last seven Premier League games, the team made the decision to fire their manager. He was appointed their manager in 2019.
“Ole will always be a legend at Manchester United and it is with regret that we have reached this difficult decision,” United said announcing the departure.
A search has begun to find their replacement. In the meantime, former player Michael Carrick will lead the team on an interim basis.
His first game with the team will be against Villarreal.
“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,” United said. “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.”
His departure came following a 4-1 loss to Watford. The team has lost two straight games, as they also were feeated by Manchester City on November 6th in a 2-0 loss.
Their last win this season came in a 3-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur on October 30th.
