Solskjaer Out – Manchester United On the Hunt for a New Coach
After a series of crushing defeats, Manchester United have finally parted ways with their coach and manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. One of the most coveted positions in football’s biggest club has fallen vacant as Solskjaer was relieved of his duties following a 4-1 loss to Watford. This was also the 5th defeat for the Red Devils in their last 7 English Premier League fixtures.

Ole Gunnar’s three years with the club had been bleak. The best they could manage was a runner-up spot last year. Many expected Manchester United to rise back to the top of the table with the summer signings of Cristiano Ronaldo, Raphael Varane, and Jadon Sancho. However, reality turned out to be quite different.
Manchester United are currently 12 points behind Premier League top scorers Chelsea, and many fear that a realistic chance at a top-4 finish is already a foregone conclusion for the iconic club.
Manchester United players are temporarily under the charge of another former player, Micheal Carrick. They’re desperately looking to fill Solskjaer’s role with someone who can restore their glory. At the top of the list is Mauricio Pochetinno, the former Tottenham Hotspur coach, who is currently at PSG. Other candidates include Ajax coach Ten-Hag, former Liverpool and current Leicester coach Brendan Rodgers and even French and Real Madrid legend Zinedine Zidane.
For now, fans are hoping that the sacking won’t further damage the players’ confidence and they soon revert to their winning ways. For punters, this could be a blessing in disguise as the club remains favourite to win tomorrow in the Villarreal vs Manchester United match despite Villarreal’s home advantage.
