Manchester United’s 4-1 to a Club like Watford was the last straw which hurt the Job of Ole Solskjaer as he was relieved of his duties as the coach of Manchester United.
The legendary status of Ole Gunnar in Manchester United earned him a position as an interim coach in 2018 after he recorded 14 wins in 19 matches, he was officially declared as the new head coach for the old Trafford team.
In the early period of Ole Solskjaer as the coach of Manchester United, the team had a back-to-back top 4 finishing spot at the end of each League season but everything
changed after the team failed to win major European trophies and the most common is the 10-11 penalty shootout loss to Villareal in the former Europa League Final.
Following the signing of Varane, Sancho and Ronaldo, it was expected that the strength and performance of the team would be boosted but sadly, this couldn’t happen as the team were humiliated by Watford, Liverpool and Manchester City.
After his sack was confirmed, Ole spoke during an interview where he admitted that he was able to execute the plans he had for his club due to circumstances beyond his control.
During the interview, Ole Solskjaer said,
“ The Manchester United team means a lot to me and despite all, I did to execute my good plans for the team, it didn’t work out in a way I planned and I must step aside”
” I want to extend my gratitude to the Club, its board members and owners who gave me the chance to manage this great club, because of
their trust in me, I was able to get the chance to coach the team and of course, the team has great potentials to win trophies and titles with the amazing talents it possess”.
Speaking on the short-term management of the team by Michael Carrick, Ole Solskjaer acknowledged that he would be a good coach that would lead the team to Spain ahead of the UEFA Champions League clash with Villareal.
Ole also urged the Manchester United players to make sure they win their next UEFA League game against Villareal because the victory would qualify them for the Round of 16 stages in the competition.
