Manchester United have confirmed that their interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been appointed on a permanent basis.

The Norwegian has signed a three-year contract at the club, where he has led a transformation in fortunes since replacing Jose Mourinho in December 2018.

“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.

“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”
