The announcement however is believed to be accidental as the post which was made on Manchester United’s official website was deleted only moments after.
The video titled “The Most Famous Night of Ole’s Career’, which was placed in the club’s online library was captioned, “Solskjaer becomes our interim manager, 20 seasons after clinching the Treble with THAT goal at Camp Nou…”.
According to a report from Reuters, Solskjaer, who is currently manager of the Norwegian club, Molde, is the front-runner to be announced as the interim manager of the Red Devils.
Apart from the website, the Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg also issued a congratulatory note to the 45-year-old in a tweet, which was later deleted. In the tweet, she wrote: “Great day for Norwegian football. Good luck keeping control of the Red Devils, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.”
So far, Solksjaer and the club has not given any official word on his appointment at the club. The former striker made 235 Premier League appearance for United, in which he scored 91 goals including the injury-time winner against Bayern Munich in the 1999 Champions League final clash.
