Man Utd has decided to terminate the contract of coach Ole Gunnar Solskjær.
Solsa had to leave because of his inability to revive MU in a crisis of form
As a guest to Watford in the 12th round of the Premier League, Man Utd defeated with a score of 1-4. This is the 5th loss of the Red Devils in the last 7 rounds (win 1, draw 1). The bad results in a row made MU pushed down to 7th in the rankings, 12 points behind the leading team Chelsea.
According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, the MU Board of Directors held an emergency meeting right after the defeat to Watford. After an internal meeting lasting 5 hours, the leader of the Red Devils decided to “let go” with Solsa.
From MU’s internal sources, journalist Fabrizio Romano confirmed that the Red Devils had closed the plan to fire Solskjær. The decision was approved by Executive Co-Chair Joel Glazer. According to this source, the Red Devils will soon announce the “beheading” of the Norwegian coach.
It is known that Man Utd and Solskjær’s representative are negotiating to finalize a compensation agreement. Immediately after finding a common voice on this issue, the Red Devils will officially announce the dismissal of Solsa.
Thus, Solskjær will have to leave Old Trafford after nearly 3 years leading the Manchester team. Previously, the Red Devils appointed Solsa to replace Jose Mourinho at the end of 2018.
As a coach, the Norwegian military leader did not win any titles with Man Utd. One of the Reds’ most notable achievements under Solskjær is a Europa League runner-up position in 2020–21.
Farewell to Solskjær, Man Utd will soon appoint a replacement. According to British media, two bright candidates targeted by the Red Devils are Brendan Rodgers and Zidane. Among these, Zidane received great support from the dressing room. Specifically, all three pillars of the Red Devils, Ronaldo, Pogba and Varane, want the home team to choose Zizou.
