Report: Solskjaer set to be named permanent Manchester United manager on Friday

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is set to be appointed as Manchester United’s permanent manager on Friday.

The 46-year-old replaced the sacked Jose Mourinho in December and has made a huge impact since taking the role on a caretaker basis.

The former Manchester United striker has led the side into the Champions League quarter-finals, whilst also taking his resurgent team within two points of the Premier League‘s top four.

Solskjaer’s arrival has also coincided with an upturn in form from players such as Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford, with the duo seeming to be revitalised by the change in management.

United’s form, with just three defeats in 19 games in all competitions, has convinced the club’s hierarchy that the Norwegian is the right man to lead the club going forward.

The Mirror are reporting that the uncertainty regarding the manager’s position could be ended as soon as Friday, with an announcement confirming Solskjaer on a permanent basis likely.
