Ole Gunnar Solskjaer mural torn down from side of Old Trafford after Man Utd sacking as club scramble for replacement

A MURAL of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was ripped down from the Sir Matt Busby stand at Old Trafford today.

This comes just three days after the sacking of the 48-year-old club legend, whose three-year rollercoaster reign came to an end.


In a poignant image – three workers in hi-vis jackets can be seen removing the image of Solskjaer waving.

This follows the release of the video in which Solskjaer was given the chance to say goodbye to the Manchester United faithful.

He did so with tears in his eyes.

During a delay before kick-off ahead of United's win at Villarreal in the Champions League last night, the away section sung their support for the Norwegian.

It was a meaningful win. Afterwards caretaker manager, Michael Carrick, dedicated the victory to Solskjaer.

The Red Devils secured their spot in the Champions League last 16 with the result.

Meanwhile, Man Utd bosses continue the search for a new manager to replace Solskjaer permanently.

Mauricio Pochettino is in the city of Manchester tonight ahead of the Champions League clash between his PSG side and local rivals, Manchester City.

But PSG have blocked United from making an approach.

The French club have been irked by reports the former Spurs manager could head to Old Trafford.

In the meantime, it is said that former Barcelona and Athletic Bilbao manager Ernesto Valverde remains in the running to become United's interim boss.

The Spaniard, 57, has been out of work since leaving the Nou Camp last year, when he was replaced by doomed Ronald Koeman.
