Solskjær Returns To United
#1
Manchester United announced today that former striker Ole Gunnar Solskjær has been appointed as caretaker manager until the end of the 2018/19 season.

Solskjær scored 126 goals in 366 appearances for United between 1996 and 2007. In 2008 he became the club’s reserve-team manager, before taking the managerial role at FC Molde in Norway.
Solskjær will take charge of the first team with immediate effect and will remain in place while the club conducts a thorough recruitment process for a new full-time manager. He will be joined by Mike Phelan as first-team coach, working alongside Michael Carrick and Kieran McKenna.
“Manchester United is in my heart and it’s brilliant to be coming back in this role. I’m really looking forward to working with the very talented squad we have, the staff and everyone at the club,” said Solskjær.

Ed Woodward, Executive Vice Chairman, comments: “Ole is a club legend with huge experience, both on the pitch and in coaching roles. His history at Manchester United means he lives and breathes the culture here and everyone at the club is delighted to have him and Mike Phelan back. We are confident they will unite the players and the fans as we head into the second half of the season.”

I'm pretty chuffed about this and reckon things will perk up and who knows we might win the prem Smile

I reckon he will build a team around Pogba once he sorts his head out. Let's hope he doesn't take any crap.

Who else thinks Fergie has got something to do with this?

I was nervous about Ole coming back, with lack of Premier League experience, but with Michael Carrick staying on and Mike Phelan coming back to help out, he will have a strong team around him. I am sure he will motivate the players to play the United way.

A leap into the dark bringing back somebody with very little experience of the premier league.
It would appear to me that they have brought him back as a way to pacify the fans,of course they will win today,and maybe a few more games but after the buzz has died down I expect it all to return to as it is now.
He will be sussed out by Pogba and the others and they will again feel they can rule the roost,"as they tried with the last fella". All this Ferguson hairdryer stuff is bluster.I would have liked to have seen Pogba,Lukakua,Jones,Smalling and afew more leave the club with yer man.
Woodward has just passed the buck and will say,"if it all goes tits up"that it was down to the manager etc. etc.etc.
