Manchester United’s long list of legends and former players came together to congratulate Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on his appointment with the club.
The Norwegian was originally handed the caretaker role but after plenty of fantastic results, he was officially appointed as the permanent manager.
Solskjaer was given a three year contract that shows the faith put in him by the board but United’s former players were keen to show their support as well.
The former Molde boss is well loved and respected amongst his peers so it’s no surprise to see the public affection for him.
There’s now plenty of work for Ole and his team to do but at least for now he has everyone involved with the club pulling in the right direction.

Perhaps Solskjaer’s permanent appointment can see some of these former stars return to the club in some capacity.
The former striker already opted to surround himself with people who know the club such as Kieran McKenna, Michael Carrick and Mike Phelan.
Many of the aforementioned stars have spoken out publicly about a desire to coach or help the club in one way or the other.
It would be wise for the club to continue protecting it’s identity and ensuring it’s history continues.
