Solskjaer gets the job
Manchester United did, on Thursday the 28th of March, confirm that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is now their permanent manager.
Ole’s at the wheel! We can confirm that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been appointed as #MUFC manager.

Solskjaer was brought in back in December of 2018 as interim boss until the end of the season after Jose Mourinho’s sacking.
However, OGS has completely transformed the atmosphere at Old Trafford and the results reflect that.
Since Solskjaer took over at United, he has managed 13 Premier League games.
United have won 10 of those games, drawing two and losing one.
Meaning, in the time Solskjaer has been in charge of Man United, they have amassed the most points of any Premier League club.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s warning to Man United players
While the Red Devil’s results have been excellent since Solskjaer took over, the now permanent United boss wants to guard against complacency.
Solskjaer issued a warning to any players who think they can just coast by at United, stating they will not last in the club:
“Players who get complacent never last at this club. I’m the same — I can’t be complacent now I’ve got the job. That’s not me. We’re looking forward.
“We’ve got to work harder. I think the players know my expectations for the future.”As quoted by ESPN.
Solskjaer’s first task as Man United manager will be to secure Champions League football.
United currently sit 5th in the league, two points behind 4th place Arsenal.
