Solskjaer To Be Named Man Utd Boss Full-Time As The Board Make Up Mind Over Selecting Ex-Striker Above Pochettino

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Will be named the full-time manager at Manchester United.

The decision has been made at board level, although the club may not announce it until the end of the season.

United are publicly sticking to the mantra that the search for Jose Mourinho’s   permanent successor remains ongoing.

But the hunt is over with co-chairmen Joel and Avram Glazer now convinced they have the right man in Solskjaer. 

Avram Glazer travelled from America to be at United’s 3-0 victory over Fulham at Craven Cottage on Saturday.

He spoke with Solskjaer after the game in the dressing-room, having already talked to the interim chief’s agent Jim Solbakken, who had sat with the directors as a guest of United.

The news will end speculation that Mauricio Pochettino could be tempted away from Spurs to Old Trafford next summer.

That plan has changed on the back of Solskjaer’s dramatic impact — winning ten of his 11 games since taking over in mid-December and lifting United back into the Champions League spots.

They now sit fourth, albeit nine points behind Tottenham and 14 adrift of Manchester City and Liverpool.
