Manchester United’s board decided to sack Ole Gunnar Solskjær at an emergency meeting on Saturday night and are waiting for Joel Glazer, the co-chairman who heads the American family’s ownership, to approve the decision.

A meeting, which lasted several hours, was called after the team’s chastening 4-1 defeat at Watford. The plan is for an announcement to avoid describing Solskjær as sacked and refer to a mutual agreement.

Solskjær admitted after a fourth defeat in five Premier League games that his team were “outfought” by Watford and had let the fans down but insisted he was able to turn their fortunes around. The board disagreed, however.

Glazer backed Solskjær late last month despite the 5-0 humiliation by Liverpool after the executive vice-chairman, Ed Woodward, and managing director, Richard Arnold, joined Sir Alex Ferguson in throwing their support behind the manager. But the directors concluded there was no way back for Solskjær after the latest defeat.

United responded to the Liverpool result by winning 3-0 at Tottenham but have since scrambled a late draw at Atalanta in the Champions League and been comprehensively beaten by Manchester City and a struggling Watford whose only previous home league victory came on the opening day against Aston Villa.

The disastrous outing at Vicarage Road brought to 15 the number of goals conceded by United in their past five league games, and David de Gea described the performance as “embarrassing”. Solskjær was booed by United fans, some of whom also remonstrated with Bruno Fernandes, at full time.

“I always have belief in myself,” Solskjær said. “Of course at the moment it’s a difficult time for us. I can trust every single one out there to give their all. The staff are fantastic, but the results are difficult. I believe we can turn this around.

“Watford away from home, you need to give them a harder time than we did. They outfought us, we allowed them to put the ball in our box too easily. There are so many things that can go wrong in football and too many did in the first half.”

United were 2-0 down by half-time but their misery was compounded by late goals from João Pedro and Emmanuel Dennis, prompting a furious reaction from behind De Gea’s goal. “I understand fans who follow the club through thick and thin,” Solskjær said. “We’ve had a hard time since Sir Alex left and the fans who’ve been with us have been unbelievable. The signings this summer raised expectations, we hoped to kick on and at the moment we can’t seem to find our form.”

Jadon Sancho, Cristiano Ronaldo and Raphaël Varane were signed after United finished second last season and the club gave Solskjær a contract extension to 2024 with an option for an extra year.

Solskjær said the first half was “the worst we’ve played” and told of the devastation in his dressing room. “The boys are in a terrible place in their heads now,” he said. “We have let ourselves down and the fans down. It’s hard to stand here and explain that but that’s football and we have to take the flak for it.”

De Gea, who saved a twice-taken penalty from Ismaïla Sarr early on, could not hide his disappointment. “It was embarrassing, the way we played today,” he said. “The first half was very poor, it’s not acceptable for this club and the level of players that we have. It’s another nightmare. There’s been some difficulties but I don’t really know what to say.

“I have been in difficult moments with this club but we are in a difficult situation. We don’t know what to do with the ball, we are conceding a lot of goals. It’s a horrible moment.”

A delighted Claudio Ranieri said: “In the first half we were amazing.” His side climbed to 16th, four points clear of the relegation zone.

Mike Tyson is an individual with a rich and varied history over the course of his life, some of incredibly positive and some of it not so, and now the former Heavyweight champion has become the cannabis ambassador to Malawi.The Ministry of Agriculture of Malawi sent Tyson a letter asking him to take the aforementioned position in the south-eastern African nation, which legalised the medicinal and industrial use of cannabis in 2020, in order to promote economic growth and diversify its economy as the tobacco market declined.Malawi relied on tobacco for a long time, and it represents around 13 percent of the nation’s GDP and 60 percent of its foreign exchange earnings. With the tobacco industry having fallen, the Malawian government decided that the cultivation of cannabis as an alternative would help the country from an economic standpoint.Tyson has grown synonymous within the field of cannabis use, mainly due to his podcast, and this is why he is being turned to by Malawi in their hour of need.However, the drug is still illegal on a recreational basis, and there are in fact significant levels of resistance to changing that measure.The technical knowledge for effective cannabis cultivation is lacking, whilst farmers have been critical of high government tariffs placed on the sale of the plant.However, the Malawi government believes it is worthwhile persevering with the endeavour as it will ultimately bolster their economy.Tyson has been asked to help the local farmers with regards to cultivating the plant, as well as changing the opinion of the drug amongst the population of the nation.“Malawi may not be able to do it alone, as the industry is complex and requires collaboration, therefore I would like to name you Mr. Mike Tyson, Malawi’s Cannabis Ambassador,” the letter from the Malawi government read.
