Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Permanently Takes the Wheel at United

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been confirmed by Manchester United as their permanent manager on a three-year contract.

Solskjaer was appointed as the club’s caretaker boss in December following the sack of Jose Mourinho.

The former United striker has won 14 of his 19 matches in charge, helping to propel United back into the race for a top-four finish.

United had endured their worst start to a campaign in 28 years prior to Solskjaer’s arrival and sat 11 points adrift of the Champions League places but the Norwegian’s arrival at Old Trafford saw the club experience an improvement in league form and also saw them cruise into the quarterfinal of the UEFA Champions League with a memorable comeback against PSG after overturning a two-goal first-leg deficit at home.

Reacting to the appointment, Ole said, “I want to thank all of the coaches, players and staff for the work we’ve done so far. This is the job that I always dreamed of doing and I’m beyond excited to have the chance to lead the club long-term and hopefully deliver the continued success.” He said.

United currently sit in fifth place, just two points off fourth-placed Arsenal, as they prepare to host Watford at Old Trafford on Saturday.
