Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Interim Manchester United Manager reign looks set to end on Sunday after United’s 4-2 defeat to Watford at Vicarage Road.

With Ryan Giggs handed a role on the coaching staff, Solskjaer was not in charge of the team in Vicarage Road.

United expected to appoint Solskjaer after José Mourinho departed the club after winning the Europa League last season.

But the 43-year-old was in action against Austrian side Rapid Vienna in pre-season over the weekend before Saturday’s defeat to Watford.

Solskjaer’s side attempted to turn around the game after falling behind at half-time but were undone by strikes from Troy Deeney, Richarlison and Troy Deeney in an enthralling contest.

United boss Solskjaer gave a debrief of his side’s season.

“We spoke about the great season,” he said.

“The last 10 months have been fantastic and a pleasure to be involved in. We moved on quickly at the end of last season and the gaffer has started the training season in a positive way.

“We have had a good pre-season and looked sharp, but I’m looking forward to the first game of the season when we have a tough one at Real Madrid in the Emirates Cup.

“That is an important game for us. We will prepare well and we’ll see what happens.”

Solskjaer added: “It is important that everybody accepts what he (Mourinho) has said because it was the end of a fantastic period, we have to respect that.

“We need to move on and embrace the changes. That is what we have done.

“We need to move on and come back stronger next season.”

If Solskjaer was to go then United will have their work cut out.

What will Solskjaer do?
