Manchester United has finally appointed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as the club’s permanent manager after impressing the management during his stint as caretaker manager.

The Norwegian, who returned to Old Trafford in December, has been given the reins by Ed Woodward and the Glazer family after leading his side to 14 wins from 19 games.

Solskjaer has received high praise for getting the best out of Manchester United’s star players including Paul Pogba, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial.

“From the first day I arrived, I felt at home at this special club,’ said Solskjaer in a statement on the club website.

“It was an honour to be a Manchester United player, and then to start my coaching career here. The last few months have been a fantastic experience and 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 that our amazing fans deserve.’

The United legend played for the club between 1996 and 2007, scoring 126 goals in 366 appearances.

He then coached United’s reserve side until 2011, has put a smile back on the faces of key personnel after a miserable final few months under Jose Mourinho.
