Red Devil’s board elected to dismiss Ole Gunnar Solskjær at an exigency meeting on Saturday night and the co-chairman, Joel Glazer who heads the American family’s possession, has agreed to ratify the move.
A meeting, which lasted several hours, was assembled after the team’s squashing 4-1 trounce at Watford. The proposition is for a proclamation to avoid describing Solskjær as dismissed and refer to a mutual agreement. Compensation and other alterations were being attended to after the board completed their discussions.
Solskjær confessed after a fourth loss in five PL games that his team were “outfought” by Watford and had let the fans disheartened but persisted he was able to turn their fortunes around. The board opposed, however, and decided to make a change.
Michael Carrick, the first-team coach and Darren Fletcher, the club’s technical director – both victorious former Manchester United players – are understood to be ready to take temporary charge when Solskjær’s withdrawal is confirmed.
The directors recapitulated there was no way back for Solskjær after the latest trounce and chose to act before Tuesday’s Champions League game at Villarreal.
