Former Manchester United captain, Gary Neville, has reacted to the club’s decision to fire Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as manager.
The club’s hierarchy took the decision less than 24 hours after they lost 4-1 at Watford in the Premier League.
Neville had refused to call for Solskjaer’s dismissal following damaging defeats against the likes of Leicester and Liverpool earlier this season. Instead, the former Valencia boss criticized the team’s performances.
Following the 48-year-old’s sack, Neville has thanked Solskjaer for “restoring some soul” at Old Trafford during his three-year tenure.
“Thank you, Ole. You did us proud. The last two months were tough but before that, you restored some soul into the club,” he tweeted.
Earlier this week, Neville insisted it was not his “style” to call for managers to go. According to him, he made a decision when Arsene Wenger was coming to the end at Arsenal.
