Manchester (United Kingdom) (AFP) – Manchester United sacked Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on Sunday, bringing to an end the Norwegian’s trophyless three years in charge at Old Trafford.

AFP Sport picks out the best of social media reaction to Solskjaer’s long-awaited departure.

— Former United captain Gary Neville, who was criticised for refusing to call for his former teammate’s sacking in his role as a pundit.

“Club legend.”

— United forward Marcus Rashford posted a picture of he and Solskjaer together on Twitter.

— Another former teammate of Solskjaer’s, Rio Ferdinand was proved right after recently saying he had to go.

“Thank you my friend for making us believe again in Manchester United. Unfortunately when you don’t get the results people forget what you done for this club but to all the players I’m coming for you now.”

— Patrice Evra, who played for United between 2006 and 2014, believes the players have to take more responsibility.

“All the best my friend.. what ever people say you will always be a Manchester United legend. You have put your heart and soul into bringing the glory days back to Old Trafford.”

— Andy Cole, who won a historic treble alongside Solskjaer in 1999.

“Best wishes to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Gave it a good shot and looked to be on the right lines, but the last two months have been horrendous under him. Sad that it came to this. Paris was incredible.”
