Solskjaer Selected to Manage Manchester United

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been selected to become Manchester United’s full-time manager on a three-year contract, the club announced on Thursday.

Solskjaer has been serving as the club's caretaker manager.

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

"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,” he noted.

"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,” he added.

"Since coming in as caretaker manager in December, the results Ole has delivered speak for themselves," the club's Executive Vice Chairman, Ed Woodward, said.

"More than just performances and results, Ole brings a wealth of experience, both as a player and as a coach, coupled with a desire to give young players their chance and a deep understanding of the culture of the club. This all means that he is the right person to take Manchester United forward,” he pointed out.

"I want to thank Ole and the coaching team for everything they have done so far and congratulate him on this richly deserved appointment. The fans and everyone at the club are behind him as he looks to take us where we need to be and build the next stage of our history,” he stressed.
