‘I feel for him’ – Manchester United’s Nigerian fans react to sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer
Saturday’s humiliating 4-1 loss to Emmanuel Dennis’ Watford proved the last time the Norwegian was in the dugout as Manchester United coach, their fourth loss in five Premier League games.
Solskjaer took over the reins in December 2018, initially as a caretaker coach, before he was appointed on a permanent basis, and won 92 of the 168 games he was in charge while drawing 35 and losing 41.
The retired Norway international did not win any trophy during his time at United but helped the club qualify for the final of the 2020-2021 Europa League.
The 48-year-old, who is close pals with Odion Ighalo’s agent, gave his blessing to the signing of the Super Eagles striker on a loan deal from Shanghai Shenhua in January 2020.
The dismissal of Solskjaer was met with mixed reactions from Manchester United fans based in Nigeria.
