London: Manchester United on Thursday confirmed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as manager of the club.
The former striker who played for the team from 1996 until his retirement in 2004 took over as caretaker manager in December after Jose Mourinho was sacked, reports Efe news.
“From the first day I arrived, I felt at home at this special club,” said Solskjaer who began his coaching career at United as a reserve and youth team coach.
“It was an honour to be a Manchester United player, and then to start my coaching career here”, he said.
As a player, Solskjaer was an integral part of the club’s unprecedented success during the late 1990s and early 2000s and scored the winning goal in the 1999 Champions League final that sealed a historic treble for United.
The Norwegian won his first eight games in charge and has led the team to 14 victories and two draws in 19 matches in all competitions.
