Manchester United has sacked Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after a run of poor results. After suffering a heavy defeat from Watford yesterday in the Premier League the Board called an emergency meeting to discuss the future of Ole.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer signed a new three-year deal in July but leaves after overseeing five defeats in their last seven Premier League matches – a run which sees them 12 points behind leaders Chelsea.
Following a devastating 5-0 loss to Liverpool and a 2-0 derby defeat to Manchester City in early November, the Old Trafford leadership had rebuffed growing calls to relieve Solskjaer of his duties.
