“I can’t wait to get out in front of a packed Old Trafford and get this campaign started.”

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has signed a new contract with Manchester United, keeping him at the club until at least 2024, with an option for a further year.

Solskjaer has been in charge at United since 2018, when he took over from Jose Mourinho.

Since then, he is yet to win a trophy with the club, though he did guide United to a Europa League final and a second place finish in the league last season.

United lost the final on penalties to Villareal, meaning Solskjaer’s wait for a trophy as the team’s manager continues. He has also guided the side to a number of semi-finals, though the Europa League in 2021 was the first time he reached a final.

Speaking about the contract extension, Solskjaer said: “Everyone knows the feeling I have for this club, and I am delighted to have signed this new contract. 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.

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