On Sunday morning, Manchester United have officially announced they have sacked their manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Michael Carrick will now temporarily take charge of the team for forthcoming games.
The Red Devils made this known in a statement via their website on Sunday morning.
This is coming less than 24 hours after their Premier League 4-1 loss to Watford on Saturday.
The statement read in part, “Manchester United announces that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has left his role as Manager.
“Ole will always be a legend at Manchester United and it’s with regret that we have reached this difficult decision.
“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.”
Solskjaer was given his marching orders in an emotional statement from the club which confirmed that Michael Carrick, on the Norwegian’s coaching staff, would step in for the short term.
Tellingly, United has said that an interim coach will be appointed to see out the season before a new permanent manager is brought in at the end of the campaign.
