After yet another convincing win, this time at Craven Cottage against Fulham, Ole Gunnar Solksjaer extended his unbeaten run, since taking over as the interim manager of Manchester United, taking it to a marvellous eleven games.
As a result of the weekend fixtures, Manchester United now occupy fourth place in the Premier League and are now on schedule to grab an elusive Champions League place, for next season, something that looked impossible during Jose Mourinho’s tenure earlier this season.
Since putting this remarkable unbeaten run together, there has been a clamour for Solksjaer to be given the job on a full-time basis.
This morning, surveying the array of media available to us, it appears that the Norwegian is indeed set to take over the managerial hot-seat on a permanent basis.
According to the tabloid news source, the Sun, Solksjaer will be named as the new ‘permanent’ manager of Manchester United Football Club but that the decision will not be announced until the end of the season.
Here at Vital Manchester United, the decision certainly gets our stamp of approval. Since replacing Mourinho, Solksjaer has galvanised the team and they are now playing with the attacking prowess the club is famous for but, more importantly, with the shackles removed, the players actually look to be playing with smiles on their faces.
If it were me, I’d call a press conference now and announce the appointment, then we can really start planning for next season!
