Shock at Manchester United. According to a report by the journalist, Fabrizio Romano, who was later confirmed throughout England, believed that the humiliating 4: 1 to Watford had decided the fate of Ola Gunnar Solskjaer, who would be fired by Manchester United.
At the end of an emergency meeting of the board, the group’s leaders decided to end the Norwegian’s journey on the lines, a decision that still had to get the approval of the owner, Joel Glazer. Early in the morning (Sunday) the approval came and the decision became final. The club has also reached an agreement with Solchiar on the amount of compensation and now it is a matter of hours until the official announcement of the dismissals comes out.

The Red Devils, who have signed a number of notable players this summer such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho and Rafael Varane, with 17 points after 12 league games and 12 points away from first-placed Chelsea. The 4-1 humiliating defeat to Watford culminated in a terrible period that included seven losses in the last 13 games in all competitions and only four wins in that period.
Solskjaer has coached Manchester United since 2018 and came with the team to second place in the league in 2020/21, the same season in which they also reached the Europa League final. He was named manager of the month during his first month in office and is considered one of the club’s greatest former players of all time.
Zinedine Zidane, who worked with Cristiano Ronaldo at Real Madrid, has been defined as one of the leading candidates for the team’s coaching, but there are also conflicting reports that the Frenchman will not arrive at this stage. Among other things, they surrendered at home 5: 0 to Liverpool, lost 2: 0 at home to City in the derby and as mentioned the straw that broke the camel’s back: a 4: 1 defeat to Watford from the bottom. History shows that the team’s chances of finishing the season in the top 4 are not high at the moment.
