Man Utd fans furious that club want "interim manager" after Solskjaer sacked

Manchester United fans are furious that the club wants to appoint an interim manager until the end of the season after they confirmed the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

United's board decided to part ways with Solskjaer at an emergency meeting on Saturday night following the 4-1 defeat to Watford.

The decision was announced on Sunday morning in a statement that thanked the Norwegian for his 'tireless efforts' as manager.

Also included in the statement was the news that Michael Carrick would take charge of the team for forthcoming matches.

However, fans hoping for an instant big name appointment have been left disappointed by two words at the end of the statement.

Those words concern the appointment of an "interim manager" until the end of the season, a move that has been greeted with fury by United fans.

One supporter tweeted: "@ManUtd looking to appoint an interim manager until the end of the season. What a joke of a club. Until the Glazers and Woodward depart this series of bad decision making will continue. They only care about the bottom line. #GlazersOutNow #WoodwardOut."

Someone else added: "Man Utd started assessing options seriously after the Liverpool defeat. So to be unable to identify an interim, let alone a manager, in over a month is a remarkable development."

A third person chimed in with: "Man U. Interim manager? That’s how Ole started … what a clueless bunch of chinless wonders in charge at that place."

While another person commented: "Complete B******* from @ManUtd what a rubbish statement! “Carrick will be in charge for the coming games while the club looks to bring in an interim manager till the end of the season” Are we a f****** joke to you?

Others joked that Solskjaer would be reappointed as the club's interim manager, having previously started off in the same role before being given the reins on a full-time basis.
