“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 the Solskjaer
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been confirmed as Manchester United’s caretaker manager for the rest of the season.
After Tuesday’s sacking of Jose Mourinho for failing to get the desired results for Manchester United, the Red Devils have acted quickly to bring in their former striker and reserve team coach.
The former United striker will take charge of the first team with immediate effect and will remain in place while the club looks for a new full-time manager.
He will be joined by Mike Phelan as first-team coach, working alongside Michael Carrick and Kieran McKenna.
Solskjaer’s first game in charge will be against one of his former clubs, Cardiff City, on Saturday.
Solskjaer had 11 years at United as a player, memorably scoring in the Champions League final against Bayern Munich to seal the treble in 1999, and spent a period as their reserve coach, working with the likes of Paul Pogba.
