Manchester United has paid compensation for the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta – Manchester United announced that the club had paid the sacking compensation of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his staff when they released their second quarter financial statements of the year.

The Norwegian coach, 48, received a compensation package of 7.5 million pounds sterling or around Rp 144 billion after his dismissal in November.

Some members of his team also get paid for a few weeks during the transition in the dressing room.

In their report, they included the expenditure in ‘extraordinary items’ of £10 million. That figure includes Solskjaer’s compensation and certain members and coaching staff who also left.

Assistant coach Michael Carrick was appointed caretaker coach of Manchester United shortly after Solskjaer’s sacking. However, he only lasted for two weeks until the arrival of Ralf Rangnick.

Manchester United will have to pay a hefty compensation fee to Solskjaer, who signed a new three-year contract in July after guiding the Red Devils to a second-place finish in the Premier League and reaching the Europa League final last season.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had given hope to restore the glory of Manchester United. However, his squad’s form has slumped, losing seven of 13 games in all competitions, including a humiliating loss to Liverpool at Old Trafford.

Manchester United have finally taken the decision to part ways with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after a 4-1 loss to Watford in November.

They then appointed Ralf Rangnick as interim boss until the end of the season before a permanent long-term coach was appointed. Mauricio Pochettino of Paris Saint-Germain and Erik ten Hag of Ajax have been mentioned as candidates for the new Manchester United coach position.
