Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Has Signed A New Three-Year Contract At Manchester United

Published

on

Solskjaer was appointed on a caretaker basis in December 2018 before he was made permanent manager in March 2019 on a three-year deal.

Despite failing to secure Champions League qualification at the end of 2018-19, Solskjaer has overseen third and second-place Premier League finishes in his two complete campaigns.

Solskjaer said: “Everyone knows the feeling I have for this club, and I am delighted to have signed this new contract. It is an exciting time for Manchester United, we have built a squad with a good balance of youth and experienced players that are hungry for success.

“I have a fantastic coaching team around me, and we are all ready to take that next step on our journey. Manchester United wants to be winning the biggest and best trophies and that’s what we are all striving for. We have improved, both on and off the pitch, and that will continue over the coming seasons.

“I can’t wait to get out in front of a packed Old Trafford and get this campaign started.”

The United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward added: “Ole and his staff have worked tirelessly putting the foundations in place for long-term success on the pitch.

“The results of that have become increasingly visible over the past two seasons and we are all looking forward to seeing this exciting team develop further in the years ahead.

“What is especially pleasing is the way this progress has been achieved with a blend of young, homegrown talent and top-class recruits, playing attacking football in the best traditions of Manchester United. We are more confident than ever that, under Ole’s leadership, we are heading in the right direction.”

Although United have had progressive domestic campaigns, they have lost four semi-finals and a final under Solskjaer and the club has still not won a trophy since 2017.

United considered Mauricio Pochettino to replace Solskjaer on two separate occasions but Solskjaer oversaw upturns in form before going on to secure top four finishes.

Solskjaer has received enviable backing in the transfer window at United, who have invested £392.6million in signings on the Norwegian’s watch.
