Former Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says the players “stopped running and caring” in during his final game in charge of the club.

The Norwegian was relieved of his duties by the Red DEvils in November of 2021 after a embarrassing 4-1 defeat to Watford at Vicarage Road.

Solskjaer admits the loss to the Hornets game was the lowest moment of his three-year spell with the Manchester outfit.

“There were many lows. I’m one of them who looks back at the lows more than the highs,” Solskjaer told the National.

“The end at Watford, well you can’t get lower than that. I more or less knew at half time, so my team talk was about enjoying the last 45 minutes together and giving their all.

“Some of them had stopped running, caring. But then in the second half we played well. Donny [Van de Beek] came on and scored.

“We should have scored more. Then we got a sending off. 2-1 until the 94th minute.

“It sounds really bad that it was a 4-1 defeat. It was bad to lose against Watford but it wasn’t a 4-1 game.”
