Failing to serve his purpose time and time again, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has faced a miserable 2-0 defeat against Watford, as the Premier League sides clashed against each other at Vicarage Road today.

The Norwegian coach, initially appointed as a caretaker manager after Jose Mourinho’s departure, is apparently not so efficient in leading the club where he had established himself as a goal scoring idol in his past days.

Moreover, it’s about time the club officials realise that these humiliating results are not minor inconsistencies in his strategies. They seem to be firmly embedded problems in the tactics evident from the fact that they lost to a team who had just one win in 17 games, even after spending millions improving their defence.

Nevertheless, soon after the surprising defeat against The Hornets, the club supporters got the hashtag “#OleOut” trending on Twitter.


One of the tweets explained the situation the Mancunians were in at the moment, as the club now possess lowest points ever at this stage of the season, four points worse off from the previous term when the Special One was pushed out of the club.

Therefore the reactions from fans on Twitter seem to be justifiable, as many pointed out that the club requires someone else to take on the mantle. The manager was even depicted as a clown in some harsh tweet, with others writing on how “useless” the 46-year-old is.

The Norwegian’s future at Old Trafford is almost apparent as of now having suffered such embarrassing losses time after time. Enticing such bad remarks and responses from the supporters must have almost threatened the gaffer’s role at the club.
