Solskjaer Appointed As Permanent Man United Manager

Premier League giants Manchester United have appointed former club striker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as their permanent manager.

Solskjaer was previously the interim manager at Old Trafford before the aforementioned confirmation was made on Thursday morning.

The 46-year-old was made the interim Manchester United manager in December shortly after Jose Mourinho was sacked for poor performance.

Since his appointment, Solskjaer has been able to revive the fortunes of the club this season.

Under his watch, Manchester United have won 14, drawn two and lost just three from 19 games.

The Norwegian football manager has led the club to within two points of the Champions League places which looked like a tall order when he was appointed at the end of last year.

Solskjaer managed the Red Devils to a 12-game unbeaten run in the Premier League until the defeat to top-four rivals Arsenal in their last league match.

The former Red Devils striker has the best points-per-game (2.46) of any Manchester United manager in the Premier League era.

He also masterminded one of the greatest comebacks in recent Champions League history against French club Paris Saint Germain (PSG).

Solskjaer led Manchester United to the quarterfinals of the competition via the away goals rule after beating PSG 3-1 in France.

Manchester United had lost the first leg 2-0 at Old Trafford.
