Manchester United caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is looking more convincing as the right man for the job as the Red Devils manager. While he has been able to quell the storm in the dressing room and put a big, bright smile on the faces of fans, United may be getting a little ahead of themselves here in making the Norwegian their manager.
Solskjaer’s former club Molde, has slammed reports claiming the 46-year-old is no longer contracted with them. It was understood Solskjaer who took over from Jose Mourinho on an interim basis after the Portuguese fell out with both the club and players, is due to return to the Norwegian outfit in the summer.
Before taking the role as caretaker manager, it was thought he had completely cleared his desk at the club. But with such surfaced claims from the club, Solskjaer appears to be gobsmacked by the reports.
The Norwegian who was stunned by the club’s comment reacted saying, “I think contract has expired and that now I only have contract with Manchester United.”
Molde’s chief executive officer Oystein Neerland revealed that the United managed put a pen down on a new deal before Christmas which would see him remain the side’s manager until 2021, before he was handed the appointment at United.
“Ole Gunnar is now employed at Manchester United, and plans to return to Molde this season,” revealed Neerland.
Sunsports last month revealed Ed Woodward and United board are readying to make Solskjaer manager. However, they will shelve plans to make any formal decision until the end of the season.
