On Wednesday, Manchester United signaled the start of a new era by tearing down a huge mural by former manager Ole Gunnar Solskjær.

It happened when the club’s leaders began the process of appointing a temporary boss to succeed the Norwegian.

United fired Solskjær after last weekend’s humiliating 4-1 defeat to Watford, with Michael Carrick installed as caretaker manager until a temporary one is found.

Carrick won his first match at the helm of the Red Devils against Villarreal on Tuesday night to seal the club’s progression to the knockout phase of the Champions League.

PSG boss Mauricio Pochettino is United’s top scorer, but he remained vague when asked about his future during a press conference in Manchester on Tuesday.

Former Roma boss Paulo Fonseca will also be considered for the role.
