The red devils have today made an official pronouncement that former club striker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been appointed to the position of caretaker manager to cruize the club to the end of the 2018/2019 season.
Solskjaer, spent 11 years at the club, scoring a record 126 goals in 366 appearances for the red devils between 1996 and 2007.
He was later appointed to manage the club reserve-team in 2008, before he later left for a managerial role at FC Molde in Norway.
Solskjaer has been appointed to immediately take charge of the first team, as a thorough recruitment process to fishout a full time club manager is under way. He is expected to unite the players and convince them to remain at the club, owing to the recent wake of dressing room unrest.
Solskjaer will work alongside Mike Phelan, Michael Carrick and Kieran McKenna.
“Manchester United is in my heart and it’s brilliant to be coming back in this role. I’m really looking forward to working with the very talented squad we have, the staff and everyone at the club,”said Solskjær.
Ed Woodward, Executive Vice Chairman, comments:
“Ole is a club legend with huge experience, both on the pitch and in coaching roles. His history at Manchester United means he lives and breathes the culture here and everyone at the club is delighted to have him and Mike Phelan back. We are confident they will unite the players and the fans as we head into the second half of the season.”
