Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been appointed as caretaker manager of Manchester United until the end of the season.
The Norwegian will join from Molde, who have allowed Solskjaer to return to his former club as Jose Mourinho’s interim replacement.
In a very rare situation, the 45-year-old will return to Molde in 2019.
“Manchester United is in my heart and it’s brilliant to be coming back in this role,” Solskjaer said, per Man United’s official website.
“I’m really looking forward to working with the very talented squad we have, the staff and everyone at the club.”
The Red Devils will look for Mourinho’s permanent successor while Solskjaer oversees the rest of the 2018-19 season.
Currently sixth in the Premier League table and 11 points adrift of the top four, he’s got plenty of work to do.
Solskjaer's 2014 interview has resurfaced
But Solskjaer arrives as a club hero - nobody’s forgotten about his late winner in the 1999 Champions League final - and Man United supporters definitely still remember his comments following an interview in 2014.
Solskjaer was the manager of Cardiff City at the time. His side had just lost 3-6 to Liverpool at the Cardiff City Stadium.
The result left Liverpool second in the table, four points behind Chelsea and with a game in hand. In his post-match interview, Solskjaer was asked about Liverpool’s title credentials.
Solskjaer’s response? He didn’t care one bit.
The exchange has since gone viral on social media and Man United fans are absolutely loving it.
Liverpool are currently top of the pile again but there’s no chance Solskjaer will get asked a similar question this time around.
Man United certainly owe Molde for being so generous.
"That Manchester United asked Molde FK to lend the manager is by itself an event and not least a statement of trust for both Ole Gunnar and Molde FK,” the Norwegian club said, per BBC Sport reporter Simon Stone.
“We are positive to lend Ole. We wish him and the club success."News Now - Sport News
