After three years Manchester United parted way with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after a disastrous start to the season. The hammer fell on the Norwegian after a humiliating 4-1 defeat to Ranieri's Watford at Vicarage Road.

His job has been under threat since 5-0 humiliation at Old Trafford by Liverpool and a 2-0 defeat to Manchester City. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has not had it this bad since his appointment in December 2018 having one just one of his last seven Premier League games. 

In his reign as Manchester United manager he has a winning 54.2 percent which is lower than that of his predecessor Jose Mourinho's 58 per cent. Solskjaer was off to a great start as an interim manager winning 14 out of first 19 games scoring 12 goals and beating Tottenham and Arsenal along the way, he was believed to have a very successful career at Manchester United. 

But after his appointment as permanent manager, he lost his first game. This was the beginning of an inconsistent two and half years as Manchester United manager. United finished second and third in the Premier League and an Europa League final was all he had to show for his reign at United.
