Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been named permanent manager at Manchester United today, having worked wonders since taking over from Jose Mourinho as caretaker manager in December.
Whilst a change was expected, Solskjaer met massive success in a short time, to turn the managerial decision in his favour over Mauricio Pochettino and Zinedine Zidane who were both linked with the job.
However, appointing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on a permanent basis only solves a minor part of Man Utd’s long-lasting problem and there are no guarantees Solskjaer’s miracle will last longer if drastic changes aren’t made.
Ole’s at the wheel! We can confirm that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been appointed as #MUFC manager.

Jose Mourinho may have been wrong about many things, but not on the fact Manchester United need to invest right in the squad, as well as they do outside the pitch.
United under Ed Woodward’s care have seen continuous growth, stretching it’s wings outside the green business.
However, if there are any chances of moving past the perils of a post Alex Ferguson era. The club would have to invest in the team; and ruthlessly too.
The red devils have a ton of players less deserving to feature in the famous Manchester red jersey, and rather than end the problem, it seems Woodward would rather build on it, with hope it yields a better result.
Solskjaer would need more than just a marquee signing to challenge on a fore front next season, with the current United squad still deficient in several departments.
A new center back is surely a priority, while the club should be aiming for a new full back(right), a midfielder and a right-winger to provide the squad depth necessary to aid United’s next season title surge.
