Manchester United have this morning confirmed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as the long term successor to Jose Mourinho as the club's manager.

The Norwegian has been given a three-year deal.

"From the first day I arrived, I felt at home at this special club," said Solskjær.

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.


Solskjaer was initially appointed as caretaker manager in December following the sacking of Mourinho.

The club has since seen a major upturn in fortunes with 14 wins in 19 games. That included a momentous victory over PSG in the Champions League last-16 earlier this month.

"Since coming in as caretaker manager in December, the results Ole has delivered speak for themselves," said executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward.


"More than just performances and results, 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. This all means that he is the right person to take Manchester United forward.

"I want to thank Ole and the coaching team for everything they have done so far and congratulate him on this richly deserved appointment. The fans and everyone at the club are behind him as he looks to take us where we need to be and build the next stage of our history."
