MANCHESTER UNITED brought in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as caretaker manager following the sacking of Jose Mourinho.

The legendary former Red Devils striker has since enjoyed a remarkable spell at Old Trafford, winning ten out of his 11 games so far.

He takes the role after Mourinho walked away with an eye-watering £24m payoff.

Who is Ole Gunnar Solskjaer?

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, 45, was born in Kristiansund, Norway in 1973.

After joining from Norwegian club Molde in 1996, the striker spent eleven years at Old Trafford and netted 126 goals in 366 appearances.

Most famous of all his strikes was his 93rd minute winner against Bayern Munich in the 1999 Champions League final in Barcelona.

With the Germans leading 1-0, Teddy Sheringham equalised one minute into stoppage time before Solskjaer poked home from close range two minutes later to complete a stunning comeback.

Who has Ole Gunnar Solskjaer managed?

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer began his managerial career at Manchester United reserves in 2008, and led them to the Premier Reserve League title in 2010.

A year later he left for Molde and led the Norwegians to two consecutive domestic titles in 2011 and 2012 and the 2013 Norwegian Cup.

But his only experience in England came in a disastrous 2014 spell at Cardiff City in which saw the Bluebirds relegated and Solskjaer sacked in September following a dismal start to the Championship season.

Solskjaer then coached his former academy side, Clausenengen U19, on a part-time basis between 2014 and 2016.

He returned to Molde in 2015 and is currently remains in charge there.

Solskjaer tells Woodward to give him Man Utd permanent job after moving ahead of top target Pochettino

Solskjaer said: “Challenging for every trophy, that’s what we should be about.

“Two years’ time is long enough, but it’s also short enough, to say that we’ve got the possibility to make a big difference.”

Woodward, United’s executive vice-chairman, will make his choice in the summer.

But Solskjaer revealed: “I’ve got a picture of what this Man United team should look like in a couple of years.

“I put my views to Ed Woodward and the club. If we don’t dream and we don’t have that vision of where we are going then we will just falter.

“We’ve got the resources and the infrastructure and the history to move towards the top — and that is the only way we should think about things at Man United.”

United face lowly Fulham today looking to stretch a ten-match unbeaten run since Solskjaer replaced the axed Jose Mourinho.

That streak which helped the Norwegian win the Premier League manager of the month prize.

Striker Marcus Rashford also won the player of the month award.

It is the first time a United player and boss have got the award in the same month since Alex Ferguson and Dimitar Berbatov in 2011.

Leno insists Arsenal ready to pounce if Man Utd and Chelsea slip up in top-4 race

ARSENAL stopper Bernd Leno has warned Chelsea and Manchester United not to slip up if they want Champions League football.

The Gunners are currently fifth in the table, just one point outside the top four, after edging past Huddersfield on Saturday.

United are in pole position following their incredible change in fortunes under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, while the struggling Blues lost 6-0 to Manchester City yesterday.

Leno, 26, said:  “We wait for the other teams and if they make mistakes. We do our work to win every game and on Saturday we did the job.

“In two weeks, we have another League game and we want to work hard. Our last away win [in the League] was at Bournemouth in November. It was important for us to win and also to win away.

“In the first half we played very well and had good control. We lost the control a bit but we defended very strong, we worked as a team.

“Everybody worked very hard and we were unlucky to concede the goal but overall it was a deserved win.”

He said: "Good victory and good work; today I think our work was very good.

"We didn't win away from home in a long time and we are closer to the top four.

"The attitude is great from everybody."
