Update: Solskjaer is now the permanent manager of man united
Manchester United have enjoyed a remarkable turnaround in form since former club striker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was appointed the Red Devils’ manager on an interim basis towards the end of last year.
Many fans and pundits have called on the club to hand him the managerial position at Old Trafford permanently following the Red Devils’ good form under his watch.
In his recent interview in Norway monitored by Goal, Solskjaer confirmed that his contract at Molde is up, thus paving the way for him to take the Manchester United job on a permanent basis.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer replaced Jose Mourinho as the Manchester United manager after the Portuguese tactician masterminded the club’s worst start to a Premier League season.
Manchester United decided to sack the former Chelsea and FC Porto manager shortly after the Red Devils were convincingly beaten 3-1 by rivals and title contenders Liverpool in December.
Since then, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has led Manchester United to ten wins and two draws in 12 games.
That form has led Manchester United to just three points behind Tottenham Hotspur in third place as the race for top-four heats up.
Manchester United occupy the final spot for the Champions League places at the moment following their latest league win, a comeback 3-2 victory over Southampton.
In total, Manchester United have won 13 games, drawn two and lost just one from the 16 games managed under the aforementioned Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
