Manchester United interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is justifying his worth with every passing week – so much so, that reports claim that the club legend could be handed the job on a permanent basis at the end of the season.

Solskjaer has seen his side make rapid strides in the Premier League, and the camp seems to be a happy one under his management.

When Solskjaer returned to Manchester, he was put in the Lowry Hotel by the club. This is the same hotel where Jose Mourinho stayed during his stint as the club manager.

Solskjaer left the Lowry Hotel after staying there for just nine weeks. Reports claim that he has been looking for a house instead, but things have gone a bit problematic for the Red Devils’ boss.

During his time as a United player, Solskjaer lived in a five-bedroom mansion in Cheshire worth £4m. He continued to stay there during his time as a youth manager.

When he left, Solskjaer decided to put his house up for rent, and after a while, Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk decided to take the offer up. Now, this has forced United’s manager to go house hunting.

According to a report in The Sun, Solskjaer’s tenancy agreement with Van Dijk means that he can’t ask the Dutch centre-back to vacate.

A source claimed: “The property is the one Ole and his family lived in since his time at United and when he moved away it was eventually put up for sale. But when no takers came it was offered for rent – and when Van Dijk signed for Liverpool he came to see it and loved it.

“Ole probably never thought he would be coming back to Manchester but now he is it really is ironic he can’t move back into his old place which he still owns.”
