Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has extended his contract with the Premier League giants till 2024.
Solskjaer was roped in by The Red Devils as a caretaker manager after the departure of Jose Mourinho in December 2018 but after a string of wins in the 2018-2019 season the Norwegian was handed over the managerial helm of the club on a three-year deal in March 2019.
Before his stint at United, he managed Norwegian side Molde from 2011 to 2014 where he enjoyed success as he helped them to win the Norwegian League named Eliteserien twice. He was then appointed as the manager of Cardiff City in 2014 but he was sacked after a poor run with the team. Cardiff finished 20th in the 2014-15 season and was relegated back to the Championship. Solskjaer returned back to Molde once again where he spent another 3 years and was finally called for his dream job at Manchester United. He previously played for Manchester United between 1996-2007 and was considered a fearsome striker.
Last season, United finished 2nd in Premier League and were also the runners up of UEFA Europa League. United lost the Europa League final against Spanish side Villarreal on penalties and was also eliminated from the group stage of Champions League by RB Leipzig.
However, Solskjaer has still got the trust of United’s board and the club recently announced the signing of Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund for €90 million which makes him the most valuable winger right now.
United are also linked with Real Madrid and French centre back Raphael Varane and it is reported that the player has agreed on personal terms with the club and both parties are in talks right now regarding the player’s move to Old Trafford.
