Manchester United are likely to sack Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The Norwegian oversaw a 4-1 defeat to Watford at Vicarage Road. The defeat makes it 4 losses in 5 matches in the Premier League.
Although an official announcement is yet to be made, the club's senior members have arranged an emergency meeting to discuss the future of the Norwegian.
Manchester United's Technical Director Darren Fletcher is rumoured to take his place for the game against Villarreal.
Everyone thought Solskjaer would be sacked during the international break after the defeat to Manchester City. But the board stuck by him and thought he would turn it around like last season but after yet another defeat, they have decided to show him the door.
United have an important midweek fixture coming up against Unai Emery's Villarreal. They need at least a draw to book their place in the last 16. With a defeat against Villarreal, United's qualification hopes would be in jeopardy and the board couldn't take the risk.
Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers and Zinedine Zidane are rumoured to be the top candidates to replace the Norwegian.
Brendan Rodgers has distanced himself from the rumours after he was asked about the situation at Old Trafford.
Solskjaer apologizes to the United fans
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer apologized for United's performance after their loss against Watford. He was seen holding his hands up as an apology to the United supporters. Bruno Fernandes in the background can be seen telling the fans to not only blame the manager but also the players.
