It is no longer news that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been sacked as Man Utd boss.
The Norwegian was dismissed after failing to improve on the results of the club. Heading into the weekend, Man Utd had just one win in their last five premier league games and the 4-1 loss to Watford left the Man Utd board with no choice but to fire the club legend.
Speaking in his final interview released by the Man Utd website, Solskjaer stated that it was an honour to have coached Man Utd and he also made a statement which sounded like a challenge to the next Man Utd manager and the players.
“I don’t want to pre-empt anything but the two times I’ve left Molde, they’ve won the league the year after, so all the best to whoever takes over – that’s the expectations!”
“I think there is potential in this club. We all love the club, and we all want to see it continue.”
“I’ll watch the team of course and hopefully, the next manager comes in and I want to support him. I want him to be successful, hopefully I’ve laid the foundations for that to happen.”
Assistant coach Michael Carrick will now take interim charge at Man Utd as they look to forge ahead in their next couple of games against Villareal and Chelsea pending when they find a new manager.
