Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has taken charge as the new interim manager at Manchester United, replacing Jose Mourinho at the top spot.

The Norwegian certainly has a gigantic task on his hands, as the Red Devils currently sit 19 points below Premier League leaders Liverpool, and 11 behind 4th-placed Chelsea.

Further, with the side drawn against the reigning Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League, getting to the next round of the European competition seems like an extremely difficult prospect as well.

Despite the tough odds, however, Solskjaer could very well prove to be the right man for the job, and the reviews he received from some of the former Manchester United players suggest likewise.
