There Is A New Favourite For The Manchester United Job

You are my Solskjaer, my Ole Solskjaer.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer couldn’t have really asked for a better start to his tenure at the helm of England’s most successful football club, Manchester United.

The interim manager has brought the good times back to Old Trafford, recording three wins on the bounce from his first three games since taking over from Jose Mourinho. On route, the Red Devils have bagged a 12-goal tally, with the impressive resurgence of Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford standing out.

Following his brilliant beginning, Solskjaer sees himself launched to the head of the pack to become the main name in the frame to become the permanent Manchester United manager.

The Baby-Faced Assassin has been moved up to 5/2 by bookmaker betVictor, now way ahead of previous frontrunner, the man who would be king, Mauricio Pochettino.

The Spurs manager is now out at 3/1 in the reckoning as second favourite. Former Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane is now at 8/1, with Juventus’ Massimiliano Allegri at 12/1.

With his name chanted out passionately, unapologetically, around the Theatre of Dreams, the majority of United fans should be happy with their man Ole being recognised in the betting to take up the position on a permanent basis.

Solskjaer was flown in from the Norwegian Eliteserien midway through last month to take up the position at Man Utd until the end of the season and help steady the stoic ship that had sailed through murky waters under Mourinho.

This Wednesday, Solskjaer is looking to make it four out of four and equal a 73-year-old Sir Matt Busby record, with a victory over Newcastle United at St. James’ Park.
