Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: who is the coach who will replace Mourinho at Manchester United


Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will have to come to the aid of Manchester United, this time as coach. The former striker was hired on Wednesday to lead the English club and give stability after the tumultuous cycle of two and a half years of José Mourinho.

Solskjaer to take until the end of the season, a sentimental appointment that will surely cheer up United's disillusioned fans.
Nicknamed "Child Face Killer" during his time as United player between 1996 and 2007, the 45-year-old Norwegian was lethal in his definition and his penchant for scoring goals. The most important of all was what he scored in the third minute of a discount against Bayern Munich at the Camp Nou in 1999.

Now he's on another mission to rescue United: resurrect him later his worst start to a season in 28 years. This favored Mourinho's dismissal on Tuesday. The team is falling behind in sixth place in the Premier League, 19 points behind leaders Liverpool, and 11 points behind fourth-placed Chelsea.

"Manchester United is in my heart," said Solskjaer, "and for me it's brilliant to go back to this role, I look forward to working with such a talented team we have, the team and everyone at the club."

Solskjaer's career as a player culminated in 2007 when he failed to recover from a serious knee injury. He remained in United as ambassador and assistant to the club. He was the affiliate coach between 2008-10.
