Manchester United Have Accidentally Confirmed Ole Gunnar Solskjær As New Manager

Manchester United have accidentally confirmed that Ole Gunnar Solskjær will be the new caretaker manager.

The announcement was posted on the club's official website, but the Red Devils have swiftly removed the news.


However, that didn't stop eagle-eyed football fans from taking a screenshot of the reveal.

The 45-year-old former United forward will be in charge at Old Trafford until the end of the season, following on from the dismissal of former manager José Mourinho.

It was reported that United assistant manager Michael Carrick would assume the role of interim coach while the club secured their new caretaker boss.

"A caretaker manager will be appointed until the end of the season while the club conducts a thorough recruitment process for a new full-time manager," reads United's statement.

"The club would like to thank José for his work during his time at Manchester United and to wish him success in the future."

It's most likely that Solskjær's official appointment will come tomorrow, with the club initially suggesting that the announcement would be made in the next 48 hours.

The new United boss' first match in charge will be against Cardiff City on Saturday. Solskjær previously managed the Bluebirds for a short period of time in 2014.

Is Solskjær the right choice?

Let us know in the comments.
