The Manchester United board have decided to sack Ole Gunnar Solskjaer following Saturday’s embarrassing 4-1 defeat to Watford.

The Norwegian was left apologising to the away end in front of a chorus of boos at Vicarage Road and now looks almost certain to be relieved of his duties following yet another big, unexpected defeat.

Manchester United owners, the Glazer family, called for an emergency meeting on Saturday night following the defeat to Watford and reports claim a decision has been reached to sack Solskjaer.

Solskjaer’s compensation was also reportedly discussed in the meeting, with Daily Mail claiming the Norwegian tactician could receive up to £7.5million in compensation after he is sacked by the club.
