Former Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera said he felt lucky to have been coached by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who he described as a ‘true gentleman’.
Man United announced on Sunday morning that they have parted ways with Solskjaer after the Norwegian failed to arrest United’s dire run of form.
The Red Devils suffered a humiliating 4-1 defeat to Watford on Saturday in the Premier League with a man down, while the scoreline was 2-1.
That came after United had lost 4-2 to Leicester City, 5-0 to Liverpool and a 2-0 defeat at Old Trafford to Manchester City.
Herrera was one of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s key players during his interim era and has taken to Twitter to announce how lucky he was to have worked with the sacked United manager.
“True gentleman, I feel lucky to have been coached by you,” said Herrera.
Harry Maguire, the Manchester United captain, was one of Solskjaer’s current players to have reacted to the Norwegian’s sacking.
The England international said: “You signed me for the best club in the world and gave me the biggest honour in football. Huge respect and forever grateful. Thankyou for everything boss.”
Maguire ended his tribute with him calling the Norwegian a ‘legend’.
