Ole’s at the wheel: But will Solskjaer lead Man Utd to the title?


After being appointed as permanent Manchester United manager, our traders have priced up Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s chances of bringing the glory days back to Old Trafford.

Solskjaer has transformed the mood at the club since replacing Jose Mourinho. And he’s 3/1 to lead them to the Premier League title during his time in charge.

We go 10/1 that he wins the Champions League as a manager for the Red Devils, having played a key role on the pitch in their 1999 triumph.

Solskjaer is also 15/2 to go without defeat for the rest of the season. But it’s not a sure thing that he’ll prove to be a long-term success in charge. There’s 4/1 about him being dismissed before the end of the year.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Solskjaer’s worked wonders in the Man United dugout so it’s easy to see why chiefs have given him the gig on a permanent basis. And the latest odds suggest good times are coming back to Old Trafford.”
