The departure of Ole Gunnar Solskjær has been one of the biggest news in the footballing world at the moment. People from around the world and associated with the team are showing their appreciation for all the good he has done for the team. The current Striker and newly acquainted face of Manchester United, Cristiano Ronaldo is one of them.
Ole’s departure was a very emotional moment for everyone associated with the club during his tenure, and Ronaldo was no different. The Portuguese striker shares a special bond with Solskjær as, during his first stint with the club, the striker played with Ole the player. Now during his second stint, he got the opportunity to play under him as a manager. Talking about the same, Ronaldo posted on Twitter: “He’s been my striker when I first came to Old Trafford and he’s been my coach since I came back, Man. United. But most of all, Ole is an outstanding human being. I wish him the best in whatever his life has reserved for him.”

The departure of Solskjær is not a recent phenomenon. People who are associated with the games will know that it is a domino effect of all the bad performances that were pouring in for Manchester United in this campaign. Despite making some of the most lucrative deals in the summer transfer window, United suffered some very humiliating defeats. Even their recent run-in Premier League is a dismal one. They have lost 4 out of their 5 matches and are on the verge of getting dropped out of the top half of the table.
Therefore, a change was imminent and it came in the form of the sacking of Solskjær after the 4-1 defeat against Watford on Saturday. The United board has named Michael Carrick as their temporary in charge for the upcoming games, while they search for an interim manager for the year.
