Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: Manchester United fans react to new caretaker manager”

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was on Wednesday named as Manchester United's caretaker manager until the end of the 2018/19 season following the sacking of Jose Mourinho.

Solskjaer's name was accidentally on Tuesday evening and the official announcement followed quickly on Wednesday morning.

The former Norway striker scored 126 goals in 366 matches for United between 2006 and 2007.

Solskjaer took over as United's reserves manager in May 2008 to become the first person to take on the role in a full-time capacity for two years.

Executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward said: "Ole is a club legend with huge experience, both on the pitch and in coaching roles. We are confident they will unite the players and the fans as we head into the second half of the season.".

Still, he questioned whether the efforts to silence the women "rise to the gravity" of formally ousting Trump from office. In legal filings Friday, the Justice Department stopped short of accusing President Trump of directly committing a crime.

He managed the Bluebirds between January 2014 and September 2014, failing to stop them being relegated from the Premier League, returning to Molde in 2015.

United parted company with Mourinho with the club in sixth spot in the Premier League having made their worst start to a season for 28 years, culminating in a limp 3-1 loss to bitter rivals Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday.

So what does Solskjaer's return to Old Trafford mean for his post at Molde?

Mourinho was sacked on Tuesday with United having made their worst start to a league campaign after 17 games since the 1990-91 season.

'Whilst Ole is at the helm, the club needs to make the big structural changes to equip us to compete in modern football.

'This is an opportunity I had to take.

But Solskjaer arrives as a club hero - nobody's forgotten about his late victor in the 1999 Champions League final - and Man United supporters definitely still remember his comments following an interview in 2014. I am looking forward tremendously to lead #mufc until the summer.

Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg also prematurely congratulated her compatriot on his new appointment before hastily deleting her tweet on Tuesday evening.

The club have put Michael Carrick temporarily in charge and announced intentions to select an interim manager until the end of the season.

There was no time for Bayern to come back and United won the Champions' League, becoming the first team in the Premier League era to win the triple - Premiership, FA Cup and Champions' League.
