Solskjaer named as permanent boss

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been confirmed as the manager of Manchester United after signing a three-year contract on a salary of RM37.3million (£7million).

Following the much awaited confirmation, the 46-year-old Norwegian said that he is delighted to land his “dream job” and is looking forward to achieving great things with the club.

“The Premier League title is vital for us. To lift the trophy again is what we expect and what we are used to and it’s what we have done so many times.

“If I can leave the club having won things — of course the Premier League — then I’ll be proud.

“I’m a happy man and I’m a determined man. The day I walk out of here I hope to be a proud man.

“We can’t wait for too many years but it’s not like it’s going to happen overnight.

“I know we will be successful but it’s about taking it step by step. You think back to what it feels like to be a winner and a champion and I can’t wait for these players to get that feeling.

“We take confidence from our performances and results lately. It’s been by fine margins. The league is decided by margins and if you have the belief, confidence, togetherness, work-rate and attitude you’ll get those margins. That’s when you’ll win games and suddenly end up challenging for trophies.”

“When people get a new job and say it’s a dream job, that’s more true to me than anyone.

“This has been my ultimate dream. Maybe a naive dream, but I’ve always had that dream to have this responsibility for this huge, fantastic, family club. I’m honoured and privileged to lead us forward.

“All I can promise is I will always be myself. I am not going to change. I just want to be the best Ole. I will be an optimist and positive guy and we will do this together.

“I know the expectations of the club, the history, and of course I want to be successful and lift trophies. I can’t wait to get on to the challenge of improving this great bunch of players. It’s a squad full of potential. We’ve got a way to go towards lifting a trophy but we have done it before,” said Solskjaer.
