Michael Carrick will take charge of Man United’s forthcoming games following the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The club announced on Sunday that the Norwegian had been relieved of his duties, following Saturday evening’s 4-1 loss away at Watford.
In a statement, the club thanked Solskjaer for his service and wished him the very best in his future endeavors.
“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,”
Carrick, who has worked under Solskjaer since his arrival, will be in charge until a new manager is appointed.
