LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Manchester has paid tribute to recently let go Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer by creating his departure in brick form.
Norwegian gaffer Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was relieved of his Manchester United managerial duties following a 4-1 defeat at the hands of Watford this weekend. He leaves the club eighth in the Premier League table with an all-important Champions League fixture against Villareal on Tuesday.
The former United player was given the managerial role back in 2018 and has had a turbulent time at the reigns. Despite leaving with no major honours, Solskjaer has been credited with rejuvenating the Manchester United squad, whilst leading the side to finish runners-up in the 2021 UEFA Europa League and laying down the building blocks for his successor.
After Manchester United decided to le-go of Ole, LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Manchester have put the bricks together to honour his time at Manchester United by creating a miniature Solskjaer leaving the Miniland Old Trafford stadium with his suitcase in tow!
The Ole mini figure leaves Old Trafford with a disappointed look on his face, however, LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Manchester wishes the Manchester United legend all the best with his future, as Michael Carrick, caretaker manager, prepares to build success in his absence.
Jenn McDonough, General Manager at LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Manchester, said: “Following Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s departure from Manchester United, we wanted to wish the former manager good luck with his future!
“Our team built a replica Solskjaer outside our MINILAND’s Old Trafford to honour his three years he spent at the club. Hopefully whoever takes over from Ole can turn around the side’s fortunes this season and lead them to bricktory.”
