Manchester United have announced the departure of manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, as per Man Utd.
The club has decided to part ways with the Norwegian following a torrid run of results that has included five defeats in their last seven matches.
The latest humiliation came at the hands of Premier League strugglers Watford on Saturday afternoon.
Having dished out a 4-1 mauling, Claudio Ranieri’s side hammered the final nail in Solskjaer’s Manchester United coffin, leaving the club no choice but dismiss him on Sunday morning.
However, now in the aftermath of Solskjaer’s three-year reign, a recent report from the Telegraph has emerged which shows just how precarious Solskjaer’s position was long before he was finally sent packing.
It has shockingly been claimed that large sections of the United squad found conversations with veteran strikers Cristiano Ronaldo and Edinson Cavani of more use than those with Solskjaer and his coaching staff.
Despite his massive role within the club though – there is reportedly a belief that Ronaldo has been left shocked at how far the club’s standards have fallen.
With United now in search of a new permanent manager while Michael Carrick steadies the ship, fans will be keen to see who ends up replacing Solskjaer.
One thing is for certain though – regardless of who the club opt to appoint on a permanent basis, it absolutely must be for footballing reasons – there is no way the side can continue the way they have been.
