Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Send Off After Manchester United Sack Labelled ’Embarrassing’ By Pundit

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's emotional goodbye interview with MUTV has certainly received a mixed response since its release yesterday.

One man who isn't holding back in his opinion of the video is Talksport pundit, and former Premier League footballer Jamie O'Hara, who labelled it "embarrassing."

Solskjaer was sacked as Manchester United manager after Saturday's shocking 4-1 defeat to Watford, a result that condemned United to their fifth Premier League defeat of the season.

However, before Solskjaer left the United training ground for the final time as head coach, he was given the opportunity to say a farewell to the fans, in the form of a video interview.

The 48-year-old became visibly emotional when talking about the contributions of United coaches like Michael Carrick, who will take charge of the side for Tuesday's Champions League visit to Villareal.

And yet, for O'Hara, who now works as a pundit for TalkSPORT, the interview was a misguided, "embarrassing" way for Solskjaer to leave the club.

"No one wants to see someone lose their job," O'Hara stated on TalkSPORT's Breakfast Show.

"He's a good a guy and you want to see people do well, he was out of his depth.

"But come on, what's that [the interview], what are they doing? I mean you don't see Chelsea doing this with Frank Lampard.

"You don't see Frank Lampard when he got the sack Chelsea giving him an interview and talking about him being a club legend, it's embarrassing."

The former Spurs and Fulham midfielder believes that Chelsea's brutal, yet efficient managerial changes should serve as an example to United - and that the trophies won by The Blues in recent years is further evidence of this.

"Chelsea got rid of Frank Lampard, brought in [Thomas] Tuchel, won the Champions League, statement, we're moving on, thanks Frank, we're moving on," O'Hara added.

"What is this? You've just sacked him [Solskjaer], he's not been good enough, Manchester United are miles off it, he's paid to do a job to get the best out of the team and he hasn't done it."
