Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had been on the verge of sacking for most of this season, but it was the last straw this weekend with a 4-1 loss to Watford.
Players have said their farewells on social media, but fans will want a quick turnaround with Solskjaer’s departure, but the question arises: where will he go next?

The Norwegian coach and former player is a legend of the club in every way, having played more than 300 matches with the Red Devils.
His coaching career with the club spanned from 2018 until last weekend, but he has been a first-team coach since 2008.
The first team he signed was the Manchester United reserve for three years before moving on to Molde, the Norwegian team he played for and with whom he has a strong affiliation.
After that it was Cardiff for a brief period before returning to Molde once again, again for another three-year stay.
As a legend at Man United and Norway, it is no surprise that the next position he is tipped for is that of head coach of the national team.
The position is currently held by Ståle Solbakken, is by far the most favored in Betfair odds.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer next management position
Norway national team 1/1
Bodo Glow 7/1
THE Galaxy 14/1
Inter Miami 16/1
Derby County 20/1
A return to Cardiff is expected according to bookmakers, as the Welsh Championship side have just 10/1 to secure Solskjaer as their next manager.
Steve Morison is currently the interim manager of the Bluebirds and is looking for a head coach to get them out of a possible relegation.
With his many ties to Manchester United legends, he’s also somewhat inclined to move to the United States.
Most notably, with David Beckham’s Inter Miami, who is currently led by former United and Premier League full-back Phil Neville.
Another club with strong ties to Man United is of course Salford City, who have 20/1 to have Solskjaer as their new manager.
United stars are often seen in the stands as the National League was taken over by Nicky Butt, Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Gary and Phil Neville in 2014 alongside Peter Lim.
Beckham went on to buy an equal share from other former United players in 2019 and is often seen around Moor Lane.
Meanwhile, Manchester United’s next permanent manager is expected to be Mauricio Pochettino.
The former Spurs boss admitted it would be his dream job and he would quit his current job at PSG for the role.
Paris Saint-Germain are even preparing for a formal Man United approach, according to talkSPORT.
