Manchester United board decide to dismiss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

It appears that the Manchester United board have come to a conclusion over Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after tonight’s board meeting, held following Saturday’s 4-1 defeat against Watford, which will be the final straw for the Norwegian as manager.

The Times has reported that Manchester United are talking exit terms with Solskjaer after deciding to dismiss him as manager.

An emergency board meeting was called by the Glazer family tonight, as per Duncan Castles, and it is believed that they discussed Solskjaer’s dismissal.

It is reported that it would cost the club about £7.5 million in severance pay to terminate his three-year contract, which was agreed not long ago, yet again showing incompetence on the board’s part, but they must honour Solskjaer for his work to date.

Darren Fletcher and Michael Carrick are being tipped to take over on an interim basis.

Who should be next manager? Let us know in the comments section.

The biggest warning – from a media perspective – is that there has been no vote of confidence since the board meeting. That is telling that the writing is on the wall and Solskjaer’s time is up.

It has been an abysmal season to date and something needs to change, although finding the right candidate won’t be easy, with the Glazers really at the wheel.

  1. good to see the back of ole gunnar solsksjaer lets get brendan rodgers or zine zine zandane of real madrid or ten kag

    1. Are you on glue? Rogers has Leicester 5 places & 2 points behind United after the same number of games… He was also manager of the scousers at one point in his career, that in itself should disqualify Brendan ‘envelopes’ Rogers …

  2. If they dont get Rangnick as interim, while trying to convince Ten Hag to join next season, then the board are clueless at every level

  3. The Glazers are beyond pathetic and they run the club like a private bank and always have. Manchester United are not a professional football organization and any fans who think otherwise are smoking something really strong.

    Ole was over his head and for a long time, but the scorn should be for Woodward and the Glazers. Nothing will change with them in charge.

  4. The problem or cause of the MU team for not performing well is mainly due to poor performance of the back four players or defenders :
    1) they don’t give their best
    2) they don’t know what they are supposed to do.
    3) they stand or position themselves in defence in the wrong place.
    4) they don’t take care of the attacking opponents but they only look at the ball in play. Most of the times, the attacking opponents are left alone.
    5) sometimes 3 players confronting one or two opponent.
    6) the defenders especially Maguire like to go deep upfront but slow in coming back.
    He should take care of the defence and not attacking or mid field role. He likes to keep the ball for too long and sometimes lose it.
    7) most of the players are very slow in coming back to help the defence and a few don’t even want to come down to help.
    8) most of them don’t tackle the opponents for ball but just standing in front of them.
    9) most of them don’t run into positions or help their team mates so that their team mates can pass the ball to them.
    10) they don’t create chances in the front to penetrate the opponent side.
    11) most of the them look like not giving their best, lack of commitment, look lazy, etc

  5. United needs a strong leader who takes no sh.t. Definitely NOT Roger’s. Ten Hag looks like the right choice.

  6. Just take your 7.5 million pounds and go already…. what are you waiting for … a statue to be erected for you ???
