His appointment has got everyone talking including former United greats Neville and Ferdinand.
"I'm delighted for Ole," Neville said on Twitter. "I didn't think this would happen when he was appointed . However the results and spirit in the club have been incredible since he arrived and he deserves it. He now needs support in the transfer market in terms of finance and the right resource!"

Meanwhile, Solskjaer lands his dream job and he's excited to lead the club long-term.
"From the first day I arrived, I felt at home at this special club," he said. "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 and I want to thank all of the coaches, players and staff for the work we've done so far.
"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 and hopefully deliver the continued success that our amazing fans deserve."
Manchester United resume their Premier League campaign on Saturday when they host Watford in Solskjaer's first game as the Reds manager.
