Staying at the wheel: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer signs new three-year contract with Manchester United

The Norwegian has been in charge at Old Trafford since 2018, after originally being given the job on a temporary basis.

Solskjaer was eventually handed the job permanently in March 2019 and he has now signed a new contract.

The former striker has penned a deal until 2024 and there is also the option to extend that by a further year too.

“Everyone knows the feeling I have for this club, and I am delighted to have signed this new contract,” said Solskjaer.

“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.”

Ed Woodward, Manchester United Executive Vice-Chairman, 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.
