Manchester United suffered a humiliating loss to Watford in the English Premier League.

Manchester United lost 1-4 to Watford in the 12th round of the Premier League for the 2021-22 season held at Vicarage Road in Watford, England on the 21st (Korean time).

As a result, Manchester United, who have drawn 3 matches in a row (1 draw and 2 losses), are only in 7th place (5 wins, 2 draws, 5 losses, 17 points). On the other hand, the promotion team Watford moved from 17th to 16th (4 wins, 1 draw, 7 losses, 13 points).

According to statistics media Opta, it is the first time United have lost to a promoted team by conceding four goals in 32 years since the 1-5 defeat against Manchester City in September 1989, and the first since the start of the Premier League in 1992.

Local media such as The Sun and The Times reported that the sacking of Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer (Norway) is imminent.

Manchester United have convened an emergency board meeting to discuss the sacking, which could be announced within 48 hours. The Solskjaer penalty was reported to be 7.5 million pounds (about 12 billion won).

Leicester City manager Brandon Rogers, former Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane, Ajax manager Eric Tenhah, and Paris Saint-Germain manager Mauricio Pochettino are being mentioned as successors as the new manager. There is also the possibility that coach Michael Carrick will take over as interim battalion commander.
