Manchester United have confirmed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has 'left his role as manager' following the club's embarrassing defeat to Watford.

The humiliating Premier League defeat leaves them in seventh place, 12 points behind leaders Chelsea and six points adrift of fourth-placed West Ham.

Michael Carrick will be in temporary charge until the club appoints an 'interim manager' for the rest of the season.

The club statement reads: "Ole will always be a legend at Manchester United and it is with regret that we have reached this difficult decision. While the past few weeks have been disappointing, they should not obscure all the work he has done over the past three years to rebuild the foundations for long-term success.

"Ole leaves with our sincerest thanks for his tireless efforts as Manager and our very best wishes for the future. His place in the club's history will always be secure, not just for his story as a player, but as a great man and a Manager who gave us many great moments. He will forever be welcome back at Old Trafford as part of the Manchester United family."
