MANCHESTER: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been appointed as Manchester United’s caretaker manager until the end of the season after the sacking of Jose Mourinho.
The 45-year-old Norwegian was manager of the club’s reserve team between 2008 and took the reins back home at Molde in 2011.
Solskjaer scored 91 goals across his 11 years at Old Trafford including the stoppage time winner in the 1999 Champions League final.
After retiring he managed United’s reserves from 2008 to 2011 and then moved into senior management with Molde, the club with whom he started his playing career.
A successful spell prompted Cardiff City to hire him but he was unable to save the Bluebirds from relegation, returning to Molde after pnly eight months in south Wales.
The former striker had signed a new three-year deal with the Norwegian club only two weeks ago at the end of the 2018 league season.
