The Manchester United board held an emergency meeting after the 4-1 defeat to Watford on Saturday afternoon to discuss the future of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as Manchester United boss.
The defeat to Watford on Saturday means the Red Devils have lost 5 of our last 7 Premier League games ahead of our Champions League game against Villarreal on Tuesday.
According to Goal, Manchester United co-chairman Joel Glazer and executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward have made the decision to sack Solskjaer after the embarrassing 4-1 defeat to Watford.
The board had continued to back Solskjaer through this run of bad form and, even after the 5-0 defeat to Liverpool, as there was belief that the Norwegian was the right person to deliver the project they have been building for nearly three years.
Following the emergency meeting on Saturday night, it is understood Solskjaer is not expected to be in charge for United’s next match against Villareal on Tuesday.
During the emergency meeting, conversations were held over which of Solskjaer’s staff would remain at the club if he were to be sacked. There were also discussions over the payout Solskjaer will receive for his dismissal, with that still being discussed.
Solskjaer is now expected to be sacked with Darren Fletcher and Michael Carrick expected to take charge when that happens.
