BREAKING: Manchester United Names Solskjaer, Caretaker Manager
Manchester United confirmed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s arrival as the club’s interim manager on Wednesday morning.
The Norwegian, who played for United for 11 years between 1996 and 2007, replaces Jose Mourinho, who was sacked 24 hours earlier.
Mike Phelan’s return has also been confirmed. He is the new first-team coach and will work alongside Michael Carrick and Kieran McKenna.
“Manchester United is in my heart and it’s brilliant to be coming back in this role.
“I’m really looking forward to working with the very talented squad we have, the staff and everyone at the club,” said Solskjaer.
Ed Woodward added: “Ole is a club legend with huge experience, both on the pitch and in coaching roles.
“His history at Manchester United means he lives and breathes the culture here and everyone at the club is delighted to have him and Mike Phelan back.
“We are confident they will unite the players and the fans as we head into the second half of the season.”
