Interim manager would hold Manchester United back, says Fletcher

Interim manager would hold Manchester United back, says Fletcher

The former United striker and Molde manager was accidentally unveiled as the interim manager on the club's website on Tuesday night.

Coaches Michael Carrick and Kieran McKenna continue on the first-team staff.

The 2019 Norwegian season begins on 31 March while Manchester United's final Premier League game of this season is at home to Cardiff City on 12 May.

Executive vice chairman Ed Woodward said: "Ole is a club legend with huge experience, both on the pitch and in coaching roles".

'We know all fans will continue to back the team and we expect to see the players giving their all for the club and the supporters.

The appointment has pleased some commentators online who feel the club needs to reconnect with the fanbase and play attacking football.

The Red Devils are now sixth in the league after losing 3-1 to bitter rivals Liverpool at Anfield last weekend, 19 points behind the league-leading Reds and 11 behind fourth-placed Chelsea.




Solskjaer, who leaves his role as manager of Norwegian club Molde, will be joined by Mike Phelan as assistant manager.

'We are happy to lend Ole Gunnar, we wish both him and the club a success.

Solskjaer, along with Laurent Blanc, were the main contenders for the role following Jose Mourinho's sacking.

United are hoping that Solskjaer, who coached Paul Pogba and Jesse Lingard in the reserves, will inject renewed positivity into an ailing side, whose underperforming players and drab style played a big part in Mourinho's exit. What matters, really, is how the club goes about moving forward next season. "When I saw what I took to be a confirmation, I tweeted my congratulations, but then saw that it was a bit too soon". Solskjær returned to Norway, where he ended up managing Molde again.

There was no time for Bayern to come back and United won the Champions' League, becoming the first team in the Premier League era to win the triple - Premiership, FA Cup and Champions' League.

Jose Mourinho paid the price for a dismal start to the season (Martin Rickett/PA).

The Portuguese only signed a contract extension with United at the start of the year, but the club acted decisively rather than wait to see if they reached the Champions League, as with predecessors David Moyes and Louis van Gaal.
