And Solskajer’s backroom staff started saying their goodbyes following the brutal defeat with club chiefs to sack him within 48 hours.

Sacking Solskjaer will cost the club a staggering £7.5million after the Norwegian signed a new three-year deal in July.

After the Watford mauling, travelling fans mercilessly booed Solskjaer off the pitch, with the boss waving apologetically.

Bruno Fernandes leapt to his boss’ defence and furiously rowed with supporters, before being dragged away.

But now Solskjaer will be booted out of Old Trafford in the coming hours, nearly three years since he took over as caretaker boss following Jose Mourinho’s sacking.

Owners the Glazers are itching to replace him with Zinedine Zidane, despite also being linked with Brendan Rodgers, Erik ten Hag and Mauricio Pochettino.

Club chiefs have so far failed in their bid to lure Zidane to Old Trafford, with the out-of-work Frenchman waiting until the end of this season to entertain offers.

Zidane’s wife, Veronique, is also claimed to have put the brakes on a move as she doesn’t want to relocate to Manchester.

Solskjaer has won just four of his last 13 games despite strengthening their squad with the additions of Cristiano Ronaldo, Raphael Varane and Jadon Sancho in the summer.
