Time is up for Solskjaer as Man United hierarchy holds crisis meeting after Watford drubbing
Time looks set to be up for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with Manchester United holding an emergency meeting regarding his future following a disastrous defeat at Watford.
The Norwegian is on the brink of the sack after a 4-1 defeat at Vicarage Road saw his side slip to seventh in the Premier League, having lost four of their last six outings.
It’s understood an emergency meeting at 7pm took place between the club’s hierarchy as to whether Solskjaer continues at the club. One of the topics of the conversation was the compensation the Norwegian will receive as the club’s hierarchy will now look for a new manager to take charge at Old Trafford.
Two names who have been linked to replace Solskjaer are former Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane and Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers – despite the latter distancing himself from the role.
For Solskjaer though, it looks set to be a bitterly disappointing end after what promised to be an extremely exciting season before a ball had been kicked.
The signings of Raphael Varane, Cristiano Ronaldo and Jadon Sancho had meant that there was a lot of optimism surrounding the club as they looked to win their first league title since 2013.
However, that has not proven to be the case and after twelve games, the club sit as many points behind league leaders Chelsea.
