The Nigerian forward delivered a man-of-the-match performance on Saturday to lead the Hornets to a fine win which has resulted in the Norwegian getting the sack
With a statement on their website, Manchester United have announced that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been relieved of his duties as club manager a few hours after he led the Red Devils to an Emmanuel Dennis-inspired 4-1 thrashing at Watford.
United had stuck to the Norwegian tactician despite a string of poor results, but it was clear that he was one embarrassing defeat away from being shown the exit door.
That terrible loss eventually came at the Vicarage Road, where Nigerian forward Dennis terrorised United defenders all afternoon.
The 24-year-old contributed three of the Hornets’ four goals (two assists and one goal) on a memorable day for the Watford fans.
It was Man United’s fourth defeat in their last five league games, the lowest point of a string of losses to Leicester City, Liverpool, Man City, and now Watford.
The club have now had enough and have asked the manager to hand over to his assistant Michael Carrick pending when a substantial manager is hired.
Dennis has four goals and five assists in 11 Premier League matches since his switch from Club Brugge in the summer.
