Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is set to be appointed as permanent manager of Manchester United and will be earning an annual salary of £7.5million. The amount is half of what Jose Mourinho earned before he was fired last December.
This new development is coming after Solskjaer helped the club secure a quarter-final spot in the UEFA Champions League by beating PSG.
With just one defeat in 17 games and 9 straight away wins, including victories at Tottenham, Arsenal, Chelsea and PSG, Solskjaer became favourite to clinch the permanent role at Old Trafford.
Even his players are excited at his role.
“We all love Ole and we love the job he’s done so far. I don’t think I need to say much after all these results, it looks certain [Solskjaer will get the job].
“We’re enjoying everything that’s going on at the moment and the results have shown that.
“That’s nine away wins in a row now and that shows what Ole and his staff have done. Long may that continue.
“It sums up what the mood is like in the camp now and that’s a big plus for the boss and what he’s done in this period of time and how much he’s changed things around. We’ve got so much more to look forward to”, left full-back Luke Shaw said.
