After sacking Jose Mourinho on Tuesday morning, Manchester United have confirmed that club legend Ole Gunnar Solskjear would take over as the club’s interim manager.
A club state statement said Wednesday morning “We confirm that Ole Gunnar Solskjear has been appointed as caretaker manager until the end of the 2018/19 season.
“He will be joined by Mike Phelan as the first-team coach, together with Mike Carrick and Kieran McKenna.”
Solskjear spent 11 seasons at Old Trafford, scoring the winning goal in the 1999 Champions League final.
The 47-year-old was previously managing Norwegian side Molde but their 2018 season has finished for the winter and restarts only in March.
The Norwegian was previously in charge of EPL club Cardiff City in the 2013-14 season, which club he will be facing in Wales on Saturday in his debut match.
