Solskjaer, a United legend, has been in charge for nearly three years, but following humiliating losses to Liverpool and Man City despite having star players Cristiano Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho, and Raphael Varane in the squad, pressure on his position continued to build.
Due to the fact that Solksjaer signed a new three-year contract in June, the club hierarchy met early Sunday morning, November 21, and agreed to split ways with him and pay him a £7.5 million severance compensation.
Zinedine Zidane, Brendan Rodgers, Mauricio Pochettino, and Erik ten Hag are the top contenders to succeed Solskjaer.
Solksjaer had 91 wins, 40 defeats, and 34 draws in 165 games.
