Former Manchester United goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel has drummed up support for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer over the permanent managerial position at the club.
Manchester United legend Schmeichel told PA Sport that his former teammate is the right man for the managerial job at the club following the impressive way he turned the fortunes of the club around in little time.
Schmeichel also revealed that he’s interested in a director role at the club.
Peter Schmeichel and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer were part of the Manchester United squad that won an unprecedented treble during the 1998/99 season.
Manchester United won the Champions League, the FA Cup, and the Premier League title in that season.
Ole Gunner Solskjaer was appointed the interim manager at Manchester United until the end of this season with the club expected to make a permanent appointment in the summer.
The interim appointment was made in December shortly after Jose Mourinho was sacked.
Since his appointment, Manchester United have won 12 games, drawn two and lost just one from the 15 games managed under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The latest win came on Wednesday night when Manchester United won 3-1 at London club Crystal Palace courtesy a brace from Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku.
