Conor McGregor reacts as “living legend” Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is sacked by Man United

Posted by

Conor McGregor has taken to Twitter to react to the news that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been sacked by Manchester United.

McGregor is Man United supporter and previously gave his backing to Solskjaer, who was struggling in the final stages of his Man United tenure.

He will have been as stunned as anyone on Sunday morning as news broke that Man United had finally decided to throw in the towel with the Norwegian.

He doesn’t appear to have taken any pleasure from it, with the UFC superstar taking to Twitter to thank Ole and send him his well-wishes.

It’s uncharacteristically classy from McGregor, who evidently recognises just how much Solskjaer has done for the club, both as a player and a manager.

Yes, he’s not of the required standard to kick on and win trophies, but he steadied the ship and laid foundations for future success under new management.

He deserves his due credit.
