For Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the story is well and truly over! On the hot seat for several weeks because of the slow start of the season of Manchester United, the coach was further weakened with the humiliation suffered on the ground of Watford (1-4) Saturday in the Premier League. Faced with such a defeat, the leaders of the Red Devils have organized an emergency meeting to discuss the future of the Norwegian coach.
Solskjaer, the end!
And as expected, the management of MU has officially decided to fire the former striker! A logical and expected decision given the very mixed results of the Mancunians despite a summer mercato XXL with the arrival of Raphael Varane, Jadon Sancho or Cristiano Ronaldo. “Manchester United announces that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has left his position as manager. Ole will always be a legend at Manchester United and it is with regret that we have taken this difficult decision,” reads a statement. Under contract until June 2024, the native of Kristiansund should leave with a check estimated at 9 million euros! In the immediate future, Manchester United will logically opt for the internal solution to ensure the interim with Michael Carrick, probably supported in this mission by another former house Darren Fletcher. A way for MU to take time to find a successor worthy of the name to Solskjaer.
The Zidane dream, White well placed?
It is known that the United are openly dreaming of Zinedine Zidane, free since his departure from Real Madrid last summer. But the Frenchman does not seem to be excited by an adventure in the Premier League. A possible refusal that could benefit another world champion 1998 … Laurent Blanc! Indeed, according to the insider of Sky Italia Gianluca Di Marzio, the current coach of Al-Rayyan is in the papers of the MU management. However, other names are circulating: Brendan Rodgers (Leicester), Erik ten Hag (Ajax Amsterdam) and even Mauricio Pochettino (Paris Saint-Germain). Manchester United will have to make the right choice.
