Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been appointed as Manchester United's caretaker manager for the rest of the season.

Solskjaer’s appointment was made public barely 24 hours after Jose Mourinho was fired having failed in getting desired results for Manchester United.

The Red Devils have acted quickly to bring in their former striker and reserve team coach.

Molde boss Solskjaer has been brought in until the end of the campaign and will be joined by Sir Alex Ferguson's former assistant manager Mike Phelan, who will work alongside Michael Carrick and Fermanagh man Kieran McKenna.

Solskjaer said: “Manchester United is in my heart and it’s brilliant to be coming back in this role. I’m really looking forward to working with the very talented squad we have, the staff and everyone at the club.”

Solskjaer's first game in charge will be against his former club Cardiff City on Saturday.
