English football giants Manchester United have confirmed that they are parting ways with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The Norwegian was fired following Manchester United’s 4-1 defeat by Watford on Saturday and poor results in the last few months.
The club have won just one of their past seven Premier League matches and are seventh in the table, 12 points behind leaders Chelsea.
Manchester United announced that First-team coach Michael Carrick will now take charge of the team for the upcoming games while they look to appoint an interim manager to the end of the season.

In a statement released on Sunday, Manchester United said,
Manchester United announces that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has left his role as manager.
Ole will always be a legend at Manchester United, and it is with regret that we have reached this difficult decision. While the past few weeks have been disappointing, they should not obscure all the work he has done over the past three years to rebuild the foundations for long-term success.
Ole leaves with our sincerest thanks for his tireless efforts as Manager and our very best wishes for the future. His place in the club’s history will always be secure, not just for his story as a player, but as a great man and a Manager who gave us many great moments. He will forever be welcome back at Old Trafford as part of the Manchester United family.
Michael Carrick will now take charge of the team for forthcoming games, while the club looks to appoint an interim manager to the end of the season.
