Norwegian professional football manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has extended his coaching career with Manchester United.

Naija News understands that Solskjaer signed a new three year deal with the English Premier League club.

The development was revealed in an official statement by the club on Saturday. Recall that the 48-year-old manager who took over coaching at Old Trafford in 2018 after Jose Mourinho’s exit.

Solskjaer will now head United until at least 2024, with the option of an extra year, Naija News understands.

“Everyone knows the feeling I have for this club, and I am delighted to have signed this new contract,” Solskjaer told the club website.

He added: “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.”

The Norwegian led United to a second-place finish in last season’s Premier League while losing in the Europa League final to Villarreal.

However, the 48-year-old, who this week added England winger Jadon Sancho to his squad, has his eyes firmly on the biggest prizes in English and European football.

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

“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.”
