Portuguese striker Cristiano Ronaldo said goodbye to his coach, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, until this Sunday. And in an emotional post on his social networks, he said that the Norwegian is an “incredible human being.”
The Portuguese striker posted a message on his Instagram account, in which he has more than 368 million followers, to fire Solskjaer, who was fired this Sunday after the tough 4-1 defeat against Watford, on a new date of the Premier League of England.
“He was my striker when I came to Manchester United and he has been my coach when I came back to the team. But above all, he is an incredible human being. I wish him the best in what life reserves for him now. Good luck, friend, you You deserve it, “Cristiano said.
Solskjaer’s departure ends a three-year cycle for the Norwegian in Manchester, where he arrived to replace José Mourinho as interim coach in December 2018.
However, just three months later he was confirmed as a permanent coach and in his years in office he led the ‘Red Devils’ to a Premier League runner-up, third place and a Europa League final.
The wide defeat against a Watford in struggle not to be relegated, the fourth in the last five games, which left United seventh, out of the Europe zone, twelve points behind the leader, was the grave for Solskjaer. Of course, whoever was baptized by his followers as a ‘child’s face’, will continue to be fondly remembered for what he gave them as a player.
Competitively, the twelfth day of the Premier continues to see Chelsea as the unquestionable leader. He solved with relative ease the theoretical difficult visit to Leicester (0-3). It is followed by the rhythm, although three points away, the Manchester City of Pep Guardiola, who also endorsed a 3-0, although home, to Everton. Neither does Liverpool, who recovered from the punctures in the two previous days with a defeat against Arsenal (4-0) to stay within four points.
