EPL: I paid price for Man United’s failure – Ole Solskjaer

Sacked Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has insisted that he paid the price for the club’s failure to “take the next step”.

Man United parted company with Solskjaer in the wake of their Premier League 4-1 defeat to Watford on Saturday evening.

The Red Devils then put Michael Carrick in temporary charge while they seek to appoint an interim manager.

“I wanted us to take the next step to challenge for the league, to win trophies… but unfortunately I could not get the results we needed and it’s time for me to step aside,” Solskjaer told MUTV.

“Second place last season ahead of arguably one of the best teams in Europe (Liverpool), I think that is a great achievement as well.

“And we were so close in Europe. Sometimes that is the fine margin for you, one penalty.”

Man United are currently in the eighth position on the Premier League table with 17 points from 12 matches. Dailypost
