Van Dijk

Newly appointed Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed that Liverpool defender Virgil Van Dijk won’t be ejected from his house in Cheshire.

Dutch international Van Dijk has been living in his house since he swapped Southampton for the Reds at the start of last year.

Liverpool paid £75m for him thus making the centre back the most expensive defender in the history of world football.

Solskjaer was asked about Van Dijk shortly after his confirmation as the permanent Manchester United manager on Thursday.

The Norwegian football manager told MUTV that he has a contract with Van Dijk and that the Dutchman won’t be ejected from his home.

Solskjaer went on to say that he would soon be reunited with his family who are currently living in Norway.

They have been living in Norway for the past eight years but the new permanent manager at Manchester United is not worried about the ability of his family to adapt to living in the United Kingdom again.

Solskjaer bought his Cheshire home in 2007 in his last year as a Manchester United player.

He was initially made the Manchester United manager on an interim basis in December but his performance has convinced the Manchester United hierarchy that the former Red Devils striker is the man for the job and he has been handed a three-year contract.
