Cristiano Ronaldo has reacted to the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who was relieved of his duties on the weekend following Manchester United's 4-1 loss to Watford in the Premier League.
The club announced on Sunday that the 48-year-old had been let go amid the team's string of poor results and performances.
Solskjaer initially took over from Jose Mourinho in 2018 on an interim basis before earning a permanent contract early in 2019 following an impressive three months.
While players such as Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes have sent the Norwegian their best wishes, Ronaldo has done so now, too, with a kind farewell message of his own.
Here are the nine managers most strongly linked with the vacant United position:
"He's been my striker when I first came to Old Trafford and he's been my coach since I came back to Manchester United," he said on Instagram.
"But, most of all, Ole is an outstanding human being. I wish him the best in whatever his life has reserved for him.
"Good luck, my friend! You deserve it!"
Ronaldo scored nine goals in 13 matches and assisted two further strikes under Solskjaer's management.
