United said a day after the 4-1 loss to Watford that “Ole will always be a legend at Manchester United and it is with regret that we have reached this difficult decision.” Former midfielder Michael Carrick, who was on Solskjaer’s coaching staff will be in temporary charge, starting with a trip to Spain for a Champions League match at Villarreal in the group stage.
