Okay Nigeria had earlier reported that Solskjaer will be retained by the club as their permanent manager.
This development confirms the earlier report.
However, Solskjær was due to continue in a caretaker capacity until the end of the season but has revived the team so impressively since taking over from José Mourinho in December that his appointment on a longer-term basis has been announced by the club.
Solskjaer speaking after the official confirmation said:
“From the first day I arrived, I felt at home at this special club,” Solskjaer said while speaking to the club’s website.
“It was an honour to be a Manchester United player, and then to start my coaching career here. The last few months have been a fantastic experience and I want to thank all of the coaches, players and staff for the work we’ve done so far.
“This is the job that I always dreamed of doing and I’m beyond excited to have the chance to lead the club long-term and hopefully deliver the continued success that our amazing fans deserve.”
