Manchester United have verified the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, with Michael Carrick chosen to take over as interim manager until the end of the season.
United had firstly allocated specialized director Darren Fletcher to take temporary charge but have decided to induct Carrick for the rest of the campaign.
In a statement, the club said:
“Ole will always be a legend at Manchester United and it’s with remorse that we’ve reached this delicate decision.
“While the past few weeks have been disappointing, they shouldn’t obscure all the work he has done over the past three years to rebuild the foundations for long-term success.
“Ole leaves with our sincerest thanks for his inexhaustible sweats as manager and our veritably stylish wishes for the future.
“His place in the club’s history will always be secure, not just for his story as a player, but as a great man and a manager who gave us numerous great moments.
“He’ll ever be welcome back at Old Trafford as part of the Manchester United family.
“Michael Carrick will now take charge of the team for forthcoming games, while the club looks to appoint an interim manager to the end of the season.”
Ralf Rangnick as new interim manager
Manchester United has appointed Ralf Rangnick as interim manager until the end of the Premier League season, eight days after sacking Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The 63- year-old German has joined from Lokomotiv Moscow, where he was manager of sports and development and will take over from caretaker boss Michael Carrick.
He’ll also take on a two-year consultancy part at the club.
‘ We will see each other again’Solskjaer gives valedictory interview
John Murtough, United’s football director, said”Ralf is one of the most reputed coaches and originators in European football.
“He was our number one seeker for an interim manager, reflecting the inestimable leadership and specialized skills he’ll bring from nearly four decades of experience in operation and coaching.
“Everyone at the club is looking ahead to working with him during the season ahead, and also for a farther two years in his premonitory role.”
Solskjaer was removed after United’s 4-1 defeat by Watford this month, their seventh loss in 13 games across all competitions which left them eighth in the Premier League standings.
Former midfielder Carrick-who has overseen a Champions League victory over Villarreal and a draw at Premier League leaders Chelsea, where he dropped Cristiano Ronaldo-will remain in caretaker charge until Rangnick’s work visa is finalized.
New boss Rangnick said:
“I’m agitated to be joining Manchester United and concentrated on making this a successful season for the club.
“The team is full of gifts and has a great balance of youth and experience. All my labors for the next six months will be on helping these players fulfill their implicit, both collectively and, most importantly, as a team.
“Beyond that, I look forward to supporting the club’s longer-term goals on a consultancy basis.”
Let us see how the united team will play against Arsenal on Thursday night, week 13 of the 2021/2022 English Premier League.
Another Nightmare For Me – De Gea
United Coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is under pressure after his side fell to seventh in the Premier League, amid a run of one league victory in seven games.
Captain Harry Maguire was sent off at Vicarage Road and the Hornets also had a penalty saved.
“It was embarrassing, the way we played today, “De Gea
“The first half was veritably poor-it’s not respectable for this club and the level of players that we have. It’s another nightmare. There have been some difficulties but I do not know what to say.
“I’ve been in delicate moments with this club but we’re in a delicate situation-we do not know what to do with the ball, we’re conceding a lot of goals. It’s a horrible moment.
“It’s easy to say the manager and staff but the ones who are on the pitch are the players and they are the ones who have to score goals and fight on the pitch. We need to look at ourselves one by one and give more to the club and the fans. It’s delicate to say why there was a performance like this I does not know what to say.
“It’s hard to be in the dressing room now-we’re sad, we’re angry. I am hurt-it’s a veritably delicate moment for the whole club.”
You will know your fate next week, Sports Minister Sunday Dare to Gernot Rohr
Contrary to reports making the rounds on social media, that Super Eagles head coach, Gernot Rohr, has been sacked, the Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Sunday Dare, has said that the coach hasn’t been sacked but will know his fate next week.
It was widely reported yesterday, that the Franco-German coach had been sacked by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), which the NFF has denied.
Nevertheless, speaking during the weekly ministerial briefing in Abuja on Thursday, Dare said a decision on Rohr’s future would depend on a report to be submitted by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) in the coming days.
This is after Nigeria endured a 1-1 draw with Cape Verde, to book a spot in the next round of the 2022 World Cup qualifiers.
The match had renewed calls for the sacking of Rohr who has been in charge of the Super Eagles since 2016.
According to the Sports Minister, the football body’s report would contain “a review of the team’s performances in recent times.”
He added that:
“ministry follows due process in addressing issues concerning the national team and their coaching staff before actions are taken”.
