Manchester United has confirmed the departure of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as their manager after series of poor performance from the Red Devils.
Solskjaer’s role came under serious threat after the team’s 4-1 loss to Watford at the Vicarage Road on Saturday.
After his departure, Manchester United announced former player Michael Carrick as the manager to take up the forthcoming games till they appoint a new interim manager.
Manchester United released an official statement on their website to confirm Carrick’s appointment.
“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,” the club stated.
This means that Carrick will be in-charge of Manchester United’s UEFA Champions League clash with Spanish La Liga side Villarreal this midweek.
