Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the new Manchester United manager, whose position was only confirmed as permanent on Thursday, was sacked this morning.
The Norwegian, 46, becomes the all-time record-breaking shortest-spell-in-charge-of-a-football-club record holder, with just 22 hours at the helm of the Old Trafford club.
Soljksaer took the reins under a 'caretaker basis' after previous incumbent, Jose Mourinho, was sacked in December. December is always a bad time to be out of work, particularly just before Christmas, with all that the festive season entails. Mourinho's family will have suffered during the Christmas period, ostensibly due to lack of funds as a result of Mr. Mourinho's sacking.
It's not yet known why United have decided to end their association with Solsjeakr but it may be related to his disastrous spell at Cardiff City in 2014, when he was sacked after relegation, and seventeenth place in the Championship, when the Bluebirds won only five of 25 league games.
One unnamed United spokesman told us the club had appointed Skolsjaer on a 'wave of euphoria', but had only now taken a look into his questionable managerial credentials.
