Borrowing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer from Molde highlights United's lack of strategy

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been confirmed as Manchester United caretaker manager following the club's decision to sack Jose Mourinho.

United are an eye-watering 19 points behind Premier League leaders Liverpool after Sunday's 3-1 loss at Anfield, while the 11-point margin to the Champions League spots is another concern.

"They're nearly writing off this season and next season because if they appoint a new manager in the summer he's not going to have much time to look for new players".

Sir Alex Ferguson's former right-hand man Mike Phelan, who managed Hull in the Premier League two years ago, joins Solskjaer as first-team coach.

Jose Mourinho came to Manchester United full of promise, but the road turned rocky almost right away.

"Ole is a club legend with huge experience, both on the pitch and in coaching roles", United executive vice chairman Ed Woodward said.

'We know all fans will continue to back the team and we expect to see the players giving their all for the club and the supporters.

So what does Solskjaer's return to Old Trafford mean for his post at Molde? In 2008 he became the club's reserve-team manager, before taking the managerial role at FC Molde in Norway.

"That Manchester United ask Molde FK to lend the manager is by itself an event, and not least a statement of trust for both Ole Gunnar and Molde FK", Neerland said.

Rumours were swirling yesterday as to who would replace Jose Mourinho in the Old Trafford hot seat, with Solskjaer among the front runners.

Born in Kristiansund, the Norseman began playing football for his local club, Clausenengen before making a move to top Norwegian club Molde, for whom he scored 31 goals in 38 games.

'Whilst Ole is at the helm, the club needs to make the big structural changes to equip us to compete in modern football. The club is now on a winter break following the end of the 2018 season. When I saw what I took to be a confirmation, I tweeted my congratulations. I am looking forward to leading Manchester United until the summer.

'At the same time, I will follow closely what is happening here at home.

Ironically, his first match in charge of United could be against Cardiff on Saturday if the mooted deal is completed in time.

Now sixth in the Premier League table and 11 points adrift of the top four, he's got plenty of work to do.
