England: Solskjaer “proud” to have coached United and thanks players


The management and owners helped me to bring in good people, good players and I think – as a matter of fact I know – that I leave this club with an even better squad.”, said Solskjaer, in an interview with Manchester United channel, after having been dismissed as coach of the team, following the heavy defeat against Watford (4-1), on Saturday.

The 48-year-old coach assumed that it was “a pride” to lead the United team, which he took over in 2018, to replace the Portuguese José Mourinho, after having represented the club, as a footballer, for 11 years, between 1996 and 2007.

Everyone knows I did my best for this club. I wanted to elevate ourselves to a higher level, to fight for the League and win trophies, but unfortunately I didn’t get the results we needed and it’s time to step back”, said the coach, who leaves Old Trafford without any trophy won.

For the rest, Solskjaer confessed that he did “a dream” while coaching Manchester United, after having been a club player and reserve team coach.

I’m really proud. It’s something you dream about for a lifetime. It was an amazing experience from the first to the last minute. I have to thank the players because, since I arrived, they have been great teammates, great people. Some came, some left, but it was very pleasant to work with them all.”, he stressed.

Solskjaer was confident that he had left “as bases” certain for United to succeed in the future and revealed that it will “support” the next coach of the ‘red devils’, in which Portuguese internationals Cristiano Ronaldo, Diogo Dalot and Bruno Fernandes line up, who has already thanked the coach, in a publication on the social network Instagram.

Considering all you’ve done for me, a ‘thank you’ will never be enough, but I’m so grateful that you believed in me and that you gave me the opportunity to represent this club.”, wrote Fernandes, who left Sporting for the ‘red devils’ in January 2020.

Manchester United today announced the departure of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, following the defeat by Watford (4-1), the fifth in the last seven games of the English League, which saw the ‘red devils’ fall to eighth place in the test.

According to the Manchester emblem, Deputy Michael Carrick “will now take charge of the team in the next games, while the club looks for a coach to stay on interim until the end of the season.”.
