Manchester United have finally sacked manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the club confirmed on Sunday morning.

Solskjaer was relieved of his job after Saturday’s 4-1 defeat at Watford.

The defeat continued a catastrophic run of results that saw the 48-year-old Norwegian lose seven of his last 13 games in charge.

First-team coach Michael Carrick has been installed as caretaker manager while United seek a replacement to take over until the end of the season.

Among the big names being touted as replacements are Brendan Rodgers, Zinedine Zidane, Mauricio Pochettino and Erik ten Ha.

A club statement read: ‘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 havereached 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.’
