Solskjær was initially appointed on an interim basis to steer the club until the end of the season before returning to his homeland with Molde.

It was said to be a loan agreement from his now former club but with the incredible turnaround in fortunes at Old Trafford - he's now been rewarded with the permanent role as the official successor to Jose Mourinho.

"This is the job that I always dreamed of doing and I'm beyond excited to have the chance to lead the club long term," Solskjaer told the club's website.

"From the first day I arrived, I felt at home at this special club. It was an honour to be a Manchester United player, and then to start my coaching career here.

"The last few months have been a fantastic experience."

Solskjaer is the first United manager to win his first six league games, beating a record held by Sir Matt Busby.
