Former United player set to take charge of Man Utd vs Villarreal after club decide to sack Solskjaer

Former Manchester United Darren Fletcher is reportedly in place to take charge of United’s midweek Champions League clash against Villarreal on Tuesday after the club decided to sack Ole Gunnar Solskjaer following Saturday’s 4-1 defeat away at Watford.

United’s fifth Premier League defeat of the campaign leaves them seventh in the table, six points behind fourth-placed West Ham and 12 behind leaders Chelsea.

Joel Glazer, United’s co-chairman, reportedly had the final say and decided it was in the club’s best interests to part company with Solskjaer.

This is according to multiple sources including Duncan Castles of The Sunday Times, who broke the story of the meeting.

Fabrizio Romano claims the official statement, once compensation terms are agreed, will claim that this is a ‘mutual’ agreement between the club and Solskjaer.

Zinedine Zidane is currently the favourite to become Man Utd’s next manager. There is also admiration within Old Trafford for Paris Saint-Germain boss Mauricio Pochettino, Leicester City’s Brendan Rodgers and Erik ten Hag of Ajax.
