After Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was fired due to a poor run of form, Manchester United named Michael Carrick as interim manager.

Following the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, MICHAEL CARRICK has been named Manchester United’s interim manager.

Following an emergency board meeting on Sunday morning following the 4-1 humiliation at Watford, the Norwegian was fired.

The loss was the final straw for Solskjaer, who arrived at Carrington for the final time on Sunday morning.

Ed Woodward was also seen entering the training ground, with the news of Solskjaer’s dismissal arriving only minutes later.

Carrick, 40, will now take temporary command of the team while United searches for a long-term replacement.

For the past three years, Carrick has worked with Solskjaer at Old Trafford.

“Manchester United announces that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has resigned as manager,” the club said in a statement.

After losing to Leicester, Manchester City, and Liverpool in recent weeks, Solskjaer, 48, was under a lot of pressure heading into yesterday’s game.

Watford’s Josh King gave them the lead after 28 minutes, giving United the worst possible start.

Ismaila Sarr made it 2-0 just before halftime, though substitute Donny van de Beek pulled a goal back five minutes later.

In the 92nd minute, Joao Pedro sealed Watford’s three points and Ole’s fate, before Emmanuel Dennis added insult to injury late on.

The travelling Red Devils booed Solskjaer, who later apologized for smiling during his post-match interview.

He has refused to resign as United manager, but the decision was ultimately taken away from him.

The Red Devils are interested in replacing Solskjaer with Zinedine Zidane, the former Real Madrid manager.
