Manchester United announce Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as permanent coach

Manchester United have announced that interim coach Ole Gunnar Solskjær will take on the job permanently.

The Norwegian has signed a three-year contract with the 20-time English champions, having won 14 of his 19 games in charge so far.

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