Manchester United shocked one and all by appointing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as the interim successor of Jose Mourinho at the helm of the club.

The Norwegian has been brought in to steady the ship and reunite the squad whilst the club hierarchy works on finding a permanent managerial candidate.

In the meantime, Ole is set to take charge for the rest of the season, as he faces the daunting task of helping the Red Devils secure Champions League qualification.

It remains to be seen how good a job Sir Alex Ferguson’s super-sub does, but he sure has the backing as well as the well wishes of several top figures associated with the Old Trafford outfit.
