The club's hierarchy wanted Solskjaer to execute a long-term plan and felt he was the best person for that job because he knows and understands the club. They also understand the club's worldwide status means the reaction to these difficult times will be intense. Evidently, sacking a manager is not that hard. Getting the right replacement is the tough bit. United do not want a short-term, quick-fix manager. They want someone who can build a squad and work with them, mixing, in the club's own words 'world-class recruits' with 'academy graduates'. The most obvious managers who fit that template are Mauricio Pochettino, Brendan Rodgers and Erik ten Hag. (Simon Stone, BBC)
