Manchester United after a long board meeting has decided to sack Ole Solskjaer with interests now turned to Erik Ten Hag and Zinedine Zidane
Manchester United board had the height of it all with the disgraceful 4-1 loss to Watford on Saturday evening.
Ole Solskjaer after the long international break failed to bring in something new to the table following prior loss to Manchester City.
Right into the game against Watford, the flow could be easily seen not working for United who slumped to a first half 2-0 loss with Watford even failing to convert penalties twice.
Having introduced Donny Van de Beek, United appeared to have the tempo restored and also finding the goal, Donny clearly brought in another kind of boost.
But it wasn’t enough to help United to winning ways as Harry Maguire’s clumsy tackle saw him shown Red and United reduced to 10-men.
Just like we reported minutes after the game, Manchester United have decided to part ways with Ole Solskjaer after a long board meeting was held.
Although Somtosport managed to get a lead ahead of the meeting to earlier report Solskjaer’s sack, both Fabrizio Romano and many other top sources can now confirm this.
United are now currently working on compensation plan for Ole Solskjaer and also a honorable announcement for him.
His status as a club Legend is heavily under consideration and as such, he would resign as United manager to make things more honorable instead of being handed a sack.
Announcement is set to be announced by Sunday or at most Monday morning as it’s currently under process and things in place.
United are now strongly pushing to convince Zinedine Zidane to take the job that would see him reunite with both Cristiano Ronaldo and Raphael Varane.
According to our sources close to the club, this move is also a plot to cheer up Ronaldo who has increasingly grew frustrated from the poor run of form.
Zidane is yet to respond to the offer, with Erik Ten Hag also at the other end of the want list.
With both men yet to officially reach any agreement with United, the club has shared that either Darren Fletcher or Laurent Blanc will take over as interim manager.
Michael Carrick’s place remains secured at least until Saturday night as he is said to be likely assisting Fletcher should he be named interim manager.
United will pay Solskjaer the sum of £7.5m after he has said goodbye to his staff in the dressing room after the Watford loss.
