Manchester United have finally announced Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as their permanent gaffer, going forward from the caretaker role he was initially assigned after the December sacking of Jose Mourinho.

The Norwegian has certainly achieved enough to deserve the full-time job, particularly with the manner in which his side came back to win against PSG in the Champions League earlier this season.

Solskjaer had this to say about the appointment: “From the first day I arrived, I felt at home at this special club. It was an honour to be a Manchester United player, and then to start my coaching career here. The last few months have been a fantastic experience and I want to thank all of the coaches, players and staff for the work we’ve done so far. This is the job that I always dreamed of doing and I’m beyond excited to have the chance to lead the club long-term and hopefully deliver the continued success that our amazing fans deserve.”

Twitter sighed a breath of relief at the announcement. Quite a few fans were surprised that it took the club this long to seal the deal, with one or two even fearing that the intended international break announcement may not take place.

It certainly appears that such a choice was lauded by the football world which is now eager to see this saga forward.

The ‘World’s Best Audition’ will be in naught if the Norwegian is unable to capitalize on his brilliance going forward and fully stamp his authority. This season of the next, United are now a club of results and the the former striker may know just how to achieve the same.
