Ole Gunnar Solskjaer signs new contract with Man Utd

Manchester United coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has signed a new three-year contract until at least 2024 with an option for an additional year.

The Norwegian finished second in the Premier League last season and lost the Europa League final to Villarreal at the same time, but has not yet delivered silver in his two and a half seasons.

But the former United striker is confident he can deliver trophies to Old Trafford.

Solskjaer said on the club’s official website: “Everyone knows how I feel about this club and I am very happy to have signed this new contract.

“It’s an exciting time for Manchester United, we’ve built a squad with a good balance of young and experienced players who are hungry for success.

“I have a fantastic team of coaches around me and we are all ready to take the next step on our journey.

“Manchester United want to win the biggest and best trophies and that is our goal.

“We improved on and off the pitch, and it will continue to do so in the coming seasons.

“I can’t wait to get up in front of a crowded Old Trafford and start this campaign.”

The United hierarchy still believes that Solskjaer is the right man to bring the club to success.

“Ole and his staff have worked tirelessly to lay the foundations for long-term success on the pitch,” said CEO Ed Woodward.

“The results of this have become more and more visible in the last two seasons and we are all looking forward to seeing this exciting team develop further in the years to come.

“I was particularly pleased with the way this progress has been achieved with a mix of young local talent and high profile recruits playing offensive football in the best Manchester United tradition.
