Manchester United boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has signed a new contract that will keep him at the Old Trafford until 2024, the club announced.
United are yet to win any silverware under the 48-year-old, but the club has turned a blind eye by handing him a new deal since his future did not depend on lifting a trophy last season.
“Everyone knows the feeling I have for this club, and I am delighted to have signed this new contrac. 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. I can’t wait to get out in front of a packed Old Trafford and get this campaign started,” Solskjaer said in a statement.
The announcement comes a day after United confirmed the £72.9 million signing of Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund on a five-year contract until 2026, with the option of another year.
Recall, Solskjaer took over at Old Trafford — initially as caretaker manager following the departure of Jose Mourinho — in 2018.
The former United striker took over on permanent basis in 2019 after winning 14 of his first 19 games in charge.
Solskjaer has won 84 of his 151 games as United boss and led the team to a second-place finish in the Premier League last season, as well as the Europa League final, where they lost on penalties to Villarreal after a 1-1 draw.
He scored 126 goals in 366 games as a player for United, winning six Premier League titles and the 1999 Champions League.
