Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Signs New Man Utd Contract

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has signed a new three-year contract until at least 2024, with an option for a further year, the club have announced.

The Norwegian delivered a second-place finish in the Premier League last season, while also losing the Europa League final to Villarreal, but has yet to deliver any silverware in his two and a half seasons in charge.

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

Solskjaer said on the club’s official website: “Everyone knows the feeling I have for this club, and I am delighted to have signed this new contract.

“It is an exciting time for Manchester United, we have built a squad with a good balance of youth and experienced players that are hungry for success.

“I have a fantastic coaching team around me, and we are all ready to take that next step on our journey.

“Manchester United wants to be winning the biggest and best trophies and that’s what we are all striving for.

“We have improved, both on and off the pitch, and that will continue over the coming seasons.

“I can’t wait to get out in front of a packed Old Trafford and get this campaign started.”

The United hierarchy still believe Solskjaer is the right man to deliver success to the club.

“Ole and his staff have worked tirelessly putting the foundations in place for long-term success on the pitch,” chief executive Ed Woodward said.

“The results of that have become increasingly visible over the past two seasons and we are all looking forward to seeing this exciting team develop further in the years ahead.

“What is especially pleasing is the way this progress has been achieved with a blend of young, homegrown talent and top-class recruits, playing attacking football in the best traditions of Manchester United.
