Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is no longer manager of Manchester United after being relieved of his duties on Sunday morning.
The decision from the board came after five defeats in seven Premier League games, including embarrassing shortcomings against Leicester City, Liverpool, Man City and now you can add Watford to that list.
I just hope we can get over this hurdle quickly now. Replace Solskjaer and get on with team development because we are a far cry away from where we need to be at this moment in time.
All questions will be asked over the coming weeks.
While an overwhelming majority of fans agree Solskjaer had ran his race as manager, a lot of them can’t help feeling sad for the former coach and club legend, for all he’s done.
We took the below reactions from Twitter following the news:
My abiding memory of Ole Gunnar Soleskjaer as Manchester United manager will be of his enthusiasm and dignity.
Also, in his most challenging moments he refused to blame other people or external factors – rare in both football and life.
Wish him well in the next chapter.

Im not going to celebrate his sacking like most but I’d be lying if I told myself I’m not happy with the decision, more so relief. Whatever you feel towards the man just know he tried and did at times put the club first. His status at this club will remain, Thankyou legend. ❤️

Appointing an interim until we get an interim. Club is a joke from top down. Mismanaged. Catastrophic decisions. Meanwhile the sharks that are the Glazer family take the big wages. It’s disgusting. It’s inevitable but still tough to take. Good luck Ole. You’ll always be a hero x

Best wishes to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Gave it a good shot and looked to be on the right lines, but the last two months have been horrendous under him. Sad that it came to this. Paris was incredible.

We are all gutted that it hasn’t worked out.
Fanzine editor Andy Mitten was right when he said Paris was incredible and there are positive moments to take from Solskjaer’s reign.
Absolutely no question about that.
