Manchester United

‘s disappointing 4-1 defeat to

Watford

marked the end of

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

’s reign as the Red Devils’ boss. The club’s officials decided to part ways with the Norwegian coach after the team’s poor run in the Premier League.

Given the often brutal nature of football,

Guardiola

related Solskjaer’s situation to his by emphasizing that he is only still with

Manchester City

because he and the club are still winning.

"I wish him all the best, it was a pleasure to face him,"

the Catalan coach said following Sunday's 3-0 win over

Everton

.

"He beat me more than I wanted, but he knows when you're in charge of a team like United you have to win otherwise you're in trouble.

"I'm sitting here because we won, otherwise it would be another person sitting here. I hope one day we can see each other again. I wish him all the best."

Michael Carrick will lead United when they face

Villarreal

in the Champions League and also against

Chelsea

next weekend.
