Manchester United has confirmed the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after series of dismal performance. He spent two years and eleven months as manager.
Michael Carrick will stand in as interim manager.
United had originally earmarked technical director Darren Fletcher to take temporary charge but have decided to install Carrick for the rest of the campaign.
In a statement, the club said: “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.
