Everybody at Old Trafford expect Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to get the Manchester United job on a full-time basis after a stunning win over Paris Saint-Germain. Fans think the contract might even be signed on the plane on the way back from Paris.
United recovered from a 2-0 first-leg deficit to shock PSG, with Marcus Rashford scoring a VAR injury-time penalty to secure a dramatic 3-1 win and an away goals victory on aggregate.
The stunning result continues a remarkable run of form under Solskjaer, whose only loss since being appointed in December was the first-leg defeat to PSG. Luke Shaw believes it is certain that Ole Gunnar Solskjær will be made permanent Manchester United manager.
Of the prospects of the interim manager being given the job long-term, Shaw said: “I don’t think I need to say much after all these results, it looks certain. We all love Ole and we love the job he’s done so far. We’re enjoying everything that’s going on at the moment and the results have shown that”, he told.
Ashley Young agrees
Ashley Young also agreed Solskjaer seems favourite to be made outright the No 1. “It’s not down to the players to decide”, said the captain. “If you look from the outside you’d say: ‘Why not?’ He’s been fantastic since he’s come in, a breath of fresh air”, Young told the press.
“The way he’s gone about the job has been unbelievable. The achievements we’ve made in a short space of time have been fantastic. Luckily for us as players we don’t have to decide, it’s down to the owners and the directors”, the British international revealed. What do you think. Should Solskjaer get de job?
