Manchester united sack Ole Gunner Solskjaer


According to well known sports journalist Fabrizio Romano Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was relieved off his role as Manchester United manager after suffering a humiliating 4-1 defeat at Watford on Saturday. Solskger admitted that he was "embarrassed" after losing his 5th defeat in their last seven Premier League matches. Well known sports journalist Fabrizio romano reported that the result of the emergency board called after Watford's defeat was the end of the Norwegian tenure at Old Trafford.

His legendary position as a United player meant he maintained the support of 48-year-old fans, despite the downhill results in recent months.
