Solksjaer has won 14 of his 19 games in charge, reviving hopes of a top-four finish and unexpectedly guiding United to the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

United were poised to look elsewhere for a permanent boss, but Solskjaer's results were impossible to ignore and former players have been queuing up to call for his appointment.

“From the first day I arrived, I felt at home at this special club,” said Solskjaer.

“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.”
