Solskjaer beat Burnley manager, Sean Dyche, and Southampton manager, Ralph Hasenhuttl to win the prestigious prize.
United have gone ten matches without a defeat in all competitions ever since Solskjaer was appointed as United’s caretaker manager.
Speaking about the achievement, Solskjaer said: “It’s been a great achievement.
“The team deserves every single bit of credit in that respect – they’ve done it.
“But I don’t look back at being proud of this and proud of that, I’ve never been that way, I’ve always looked forward and not sat down before a chapter is finished.
“I reflect, but I’ve never [pat myself on the back] and said, ‘Well done’, maybe I should do more often. But that’s just me.”
Solskjaer is the first United manager to receive the award since Sir Alex Ferguson in October 2012.
