Man Utd fans unveil Ole Gunnar Solskjaer banner in Stretford End and chant former manager’s name after his sacking

MANCHESTER UNITED fans unveiled a huge Ole Gunnar Solskjaer banner ahead of their game against Arsenal.

Supporters in the Stretford End of Old Trafford raised the gigantic sign in the air before kick-off as they sang songs in praise of their former manager and player.

Solskjaer was sacked last month following a dismal run of form that saw United lose five of their first 12 league games this term.

And tonight was the Red Devils' first game at home since Solskjaer's exit.

The red banner featured a picture of the Norwegian tactician in black print.

And across it were the words '2O LEGEND', with 'OLE' highlighted in white.

SunSport reported this week how United had given fans permission to hold up the banner against Arsenal.

Supporters approached the club about the touching gesture and Old Trafford chiefs approved.


Following speculation over the United hot seat, Ralf Rangnick was eventually confirmed as the new interim boss.

However, the German is yet to take charge of a game after struggling with work permit issues.

And caretaker Michael Carrick was in control against Arsenal following games against Villarreal and Chelsea.

It remains to be seen if Carrick plays a role in Rangnick's backroom set-up after serving as one of Solskjaer's assistants.

And the ex-United midfielder paid tribute to his old colleague in tonight's match programme.

Carrick said: "I'd like to thank Ole for the work he did during his time as manager and the support and guidance he gave us as his backroom team.

"Results this season have not been what we were looking for.

“But when we look back at Ole's time in charge, we built a team that came very close to success and did a lot of great work behind scenes that will benefit club for years to come."
