Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed as permanent Manchester United manager on three-year contract

The 46-year-old Norweigan took over as caretaker in December from Jose Mourinho.

Solskjaer has always dreamed of this job having played for Man Utd for 11 seasons scoring the winning goal in the 1999 Champions league Final.

After giving up his playing career he started his coaching at Old Trafford, which he said was an honour to play at Manchester.

When he took over, Man Utd were 11 points from a top fourth place. Now they sit 2 points behind 4th placed Arsenal who are the only team to beat them in the 13 premier league games since Ole took over.

The Norwegian has overseen a dramatic transformation in United’s fortunes since taking temporary charge, following Jose Mourinho’s sacking in December, and Ed Woodward has rewarded him for his work over the past three-and-a-half months by handing him the job on a full-time basis. The deal ties Solskjaer – who will hold a press conference this afternoon – to the club until June 2022.

Ole brings a wealth of experience, both as a player and as a coach, coupled with a desire to give young players their chance and a deep understanding of the culture of the club.”

The belief that he has given the team has been outstanding and players like Rashford are thriving thanks to his more attacking style of play.

United reached the quarter league stages of the champions league overcoming a 2-0 home defeat to Psg and now face Barca on the 10th of April.
