The decision to sack Ole by the Glazers family was heightened by the result of the United’s vs Watford match on Saturday, where they were hammered by 4-1.

The club are determined to ensure Solskjaer receives a respectful parting, with a formal announcement expected in due course.

Who could replace Solskjaer?

Appointing a new manager midway through a campaign is never easy and United’s search for Solskjaer’s successor is unlikely to be straightforward.

Brendan Rodgers is admired at Old Trafford. But the Leicester City manager would be an expensive option and earlier this week sought to distance himself from the position.

“It’s really disrespectful for you to ask the question when there is a manager in place at the club,” he said. “And I can’t comment on it because it’s not real. I’m proud to be here at Leicester City. It’s frustrating for supporters and my players, but from a personal perspective, it’s something that it’s in the modern game, but something I have no focus on whatsoever.”

How have Manchester United performed this season?

Solskjaer was backed heavily this summer, which saw the arrivals of serial winner Raphael Varane, England international Jadon Sancho and the jaw-dropping return of Cristiano Ronaldo.

Despite the wealth of resources at his disposal, however, the squad has severely underperformed this campaign.

United won just four of Solskjaer’s last 13 games in charge. The loss to Watford followed comprehensive defeats against rivals Manchester City and Liverpool in recent weeks, which ultimately cost the Norwegian his job.

What’s next?

Darren Fletcher

In the short-term future, we understands that it is possible Darren Fletcher will be placed in charge on an interim basis.

He could be assisted by Michael Carrick, whose position at the club remains intact as of Saturday night, with sources suggesting the pair would be part of a structure to tide United over if no immediate solution is found.

Ole hesistant until the End!

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insisted he was the man to turn around Manchester United’s fortunes only hours before the club decided to part ways with the Norwegian manager.

Solskjaer won just four of his last 13 games in charge, with Saturday’s heavy defeat following back-to-back home losses to bitter rivals Manchester City and Liverpool.

Solskjaer confessed to feeling “low” after another poor performance — but said losing his job was “not for me to worry about”.

Speaking to reporters after the match, Solskjaer said: “I feel very low. We’re just not finding our form.

“We’ve corrected a few things, we’ve put a few things right. We’ve of course made sure that we’ve prioritised a couple of things that needed to improve the most and I’m sure we’ll see a good reaction and good team performance tomorrow.” when asked about his future Ole added;

I always have belief in myself but of course at the moment it’s a difficult time for us,” he said. “I can trust every single one out there to give what they have, the staff is fantastic.

“I believe we can turn this around,” he added.

“I work as hard and as well as I can with the staff I’ve got, top people, professional players but at the moment we’re not getting the results.

“The first-half is the worst we’ve played and it’s hard for me to explain why we played the way we did and allowed them to get in our box from nothing. The goalkeeper could go up to the halfway line and put it in the box — we were outfought.” he concluded.
